Auval cannot load plugin

Hi,

I’ve built my Mac AU using JUCE 5.4.3 and ProJucer but the auval fails with the following error that I’m completely stumped by. The vst and vst3 both work fine as does the iOS standalone, AUv3 and Mac standalone.

Any ideas? I’m lost.

Using pluginval I see the following error.

Thanks. I think there’s some issue with the my plug-in startup loading the initial preset from disk. You have to clean the ~/Library/Caches/AudioUnitCache after every build? Seems code changes don’t get applied.
