Hey Everyone! I’m having trouble building the project which says failed to build my project solution which frustrated me a lot… I have Windows 7 x32 bit Mono (

The output:
platform/windows/os_windows.cpp:2922 - Condition “ret == 0” is true. Returned: ERR_CANT_FORK

editor/editor_node.cpp:5532 - An EditorPlugin build callback failed.
I really need your help and thank you!

I strongly discourage you to use Windows 7 anymore.
This operating system is end of life.

I was having this same issue and running Godot from the command line pointed me in the right direction. I was getting an error that Godot couldn’t find MSBuild.

While I suspect there is a way to install all of the necessary build tools piecemeal, I found that the easiest way to install everything I needed was to just install the latest version of Visual Studio Community which comes with MSBuild and the necessary SDKs.

Hopefully this helps.
