Can not load vst plugin into reaper

I am using visual studio 2017 to make an audio plug-in and I tick the VST box in the setting. when i click scan plugins in reaper it doesn’t seem to find my VST projects does anybody know why this is happening?

Is the dll getting copied to the folder where Reaper expects to find VST plug-ins? Most VST(2) hosts have a setting to specify where those plug-ins can be found. If your dll is not getting put in that folder, then you either need to specify that folder in Reaper where your plug-in is getting copied, or you need to modify your project to copy it to the location that Reaper is expecting.
