I’ve begun developing a plugin idea on Mac and XCode but also wanted to check compilation and functionality of VST3 for Window 10.
I don’t have a Windows-PC myself but managed to compile in Visual Studio2019 on a virtual Windows 10 (Oracle VirtualBox) partition. Slow but successful!
However, I found that when bringing the build to a real (borrowed MSI-laptop, quite new) Windows 10 PC only the version using “Static Runtime” would work. The one using the Juce default selection “Default (DLL Runtime)” produced an error as standalone (“Hello World”) and did not work:
“…execution cannot proceed … VCRuntime140_1.dll was not found”.
As VST3 it did not show up in the DAW. Static runtime showed up and seems to work.
So where can I find more information on how to sucessfully compile VST3 for Windows 10? The Runtime selection and “Platform solution” are the most puzzling to me but there might may be more.
Any help is appreciated.
