Hi can you please help me solve this waf error problem, I’m frusturated at this point and would like to ask a few questions as well. When I hit rebuild project I’m getting WAF error. I checked every solution on this topic in forums. I got VS 2019 and has that MPS or something package I can’t remmember it’s name but I got that, I tried changing code in WAF settings according to a post I read here, didn’t worked, I uninstalled Lumberyard and reinstalled it and it just insists on not working.
Unreal Engine 5 for instance, also in Early Access, you hit download, you hit install and boom, it just works.
I like Lumberyard, I like it’s UI, it’s entity system, excellent renders but why install process has to be so counter-intuitive? If people are currently working on Lumberyard, they should work on improving initial installment before adding new features. I have not seen a worse installment process than Lumberyard, might as well building it myself from the source code seems like it would have been easier. This is ridiculous.
Also what the hell WAF stands for anyway?
I was going to upload screenshot but apparently “new users cannot upload files”
So here’s a drive link that includes log txt aswell. Only thing missing in “Install Software” section is Speedtree.
It just doesn’t work I tried a lot of stuff please help
Edit: Also I use VS2019 do I need VS2017 ???
Edit 2: Lumberyard is not installed on C instead it’s intalled in ssd drive S should I move it to C ?
Edit 3: Lumberyard Setup Assistant has a green check on everything required so why the hell this thing is not working?!?!

It says “Check the file permissions or any process that may be locking it.” I did checked the file permissions, it is not read only, users have full access and I’m running Project Configurator admin mode.
Edit 5: About Error no 13 Permission denied error in another post someone says restart fixes it so I restarted the PC and it’s not solved. Lumberyard hates me I have tried so much stuff it just does’t work.
Edit 6: I revert folder properties of lumberyard, I uncheck “read only” but when I try to rebuild project it automaticall reverts back to read only and gives error.
Edit 7: At this point, I don’t know what else to do. I installed this QT software thinking maybe it would solve it. It didn’t, why permission is denied? Who knows! I guess I have to prepare the perfect condition for it to run with scientific precision like as if I’m trying to discover higgs boson. Do I need a hadron collider to run this thing?
