I’m on Windows 7, Cubase 8.5 64bit and building the VST3 with Visual Studio 2017.
Visual Studio is set to build for 64bit - the same as Cubase.
In Projucer settings I have done the following:
Set PluginFormat to VST3
Set Plugin VST3 Category to Fx and Instrument
Everything else is set to defaults.
The VST builds and I can use it in the JUCE AudioPluginHost without problems but Cubase doesn’t even see it. I searched the forums and it seems like others that had a similar issue were not copying the VST to the right folder. I’m pretty sure I am - C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3. I also tried with another default project but still no success. What am I missing?
hehe yeah - I tried all the VST folders I could find of course Still no joy - plus it’s pretty clear that it is the right folder since all other 3rd party vst3 files are there and nowhere else. The folder suggested by Holy_City does not exist and the closest one only has older VST DLL files in it.
But - I did come across a possible solution whilst googling last night - something about setting the runtime library to static runtime
I will try this now…fingers crossed I can stop pulling my hair out
I guess most people won’t notice if they are running their host on the same machine they are developing on but because my DAW PC doesn’t have Visual Studio or any dev stuff I needed to use the static runtime.
