Unreal Source Code Editor Not Showing Rider 2022.1.1

Hello I just got the all-product-pack today, and recently installed rider and opened up an Unreal Engine 5 project and it installed the required plugin "Unreal Link". I however, see no option for Rider in the Source Code Editor option for Unreal Engine. It does show CLion, but I have never installed that. I have done the general debugging of restarting Unreal and my computer. I have not used "Unreal Engine for Rider" prior to this. Should I be using that instead? I am under the impression that's not the case. It seems Prior Versions required you to get a plugin from the Unreal Market place in order to see the editor as an option in Unreal, but that is no longer available. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I think I found a temporary fix by using the Rider Intergration Plugin I found included in UE5 and editing a RiderLocations.txt file in that plugin to include the path of rider, and also disabling RiderLink

Hello, Justin.

Am I understand you correctly, that you were able to solve the problem? It sounds like a known issue. 
Could you please confirm that you encounter this issue on Linux?

Thank you in advance!

I am on windows, The Issue was that Rider was not found on its own in UE. I was able to manually specify its location by editing the Rider Integration Plugin text file that came out of the box in UE. I don't know how the detection of editors is working but It was able to find CLion even though I had never installed it.

Hello Justin,

Thank you for the details shared. 

It seems Rider wasn't visible in Unreal Engine due to the lack of permissions.
It happens when Unreal Engine is installed per-user, but Rider is installed as administrator.

Please be aware that if you are editing the RiderLocations.txt , you might encounter permission-related issues/side effects  in the future. Hence, as a workaround, instead of editing RiderLocations.txt, we recommend reinstalling Rider via the ToolBox application in such cases.

Should you have any other questions or difficulties in the future, do not to hesitate to contact support.
