I’m trying to sort through debugging in general.
I have VS 2017 and I directed it to Reaper, with Attach = yes.
The vst3 file compiles fine. I copied it to where Reaper can find it, and Reaper finds it, but the first thing it says on starting is that the plugin performed an invalid operation while scanning. It is not on the list of available plugins.
VS doesn’t give me any warning that my breakpoints won’t be hit. It sees nothing wrong anywhere.
The plugin itself is only attempting to load another plugin, based on code posted here a while back. I direct it in the code to the name of another plugin in the same directory, if that matters. Until I can actually debug it, I can’t begin to tell where it’s going wrong, or if it will even be possible to do this.
Is there a way for VS to debug the plugin… before it loads in a host??
