Audio Plugin Host - base/source/flock.cpp


I’m trying to get the audio plugin host running but getting some problems.
I open the projucer file and then open in IDE (VS 2017).
It doesn’t run because of:
…juce\modules\juce_audio_processors\format_types\juce_VST3Headers.h(95): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘base/source/flock.cpp’: No such file or directory

Thanks for any help


You are missing the VST SDK, see here:

You need it for hosting VSTs as well, not only for a plugin.



I did install the SDK and it does find the other files of it, but in vstsdk368_08_11_2017_build_121
the flock and fcondition files are at base/thread/
now what should we change best to fix this?
thank you


We updated juce to be compatible with 3.6.8 a few weeks ago! Please always try the latest version on the develop branch before assuming there’s a problem!


This question may be stupid, but where do i get the latest version on the develop branch? I’m noob.

i have the same problem in VS ‘base/source/flock.cpp’: No such file or directory


Go here

and click on the green “Clone or download” button. If you’re not comfortable using git just click on the subsequent “Download zip” button.


do i have to replace the orignal Projucer files with the ones from Github?


Everything compiled correctly with projucer + github files
