The AWS GameKit Plugin for Unreal is not validated on Windows 11, however the issue seen is reproducible on Windows 10 when not manually regenerating project files. The correct process is as follows:

  • Copy the AwsGameKit directory from the downloaded release into your <unreal_project>/Plugins directory
  • Right click on your .uproject file
  • Click "Generate Visual Studio project files."

The project can be built and launched afterwards. More detailed steps can be found in the documentation:
