This is my first time trying to load a VST3 plugin into the JUCE host. I’ve built the default “Hello World” audio plug-in successfully as the .vst3 file is created in my project’s VST3 folder. After copying this file to the proper location under C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3, I then attempt to scan and load within the JUCE host.
At this point I am met with a message stating “Scan Complete. Note that the following files appeared to be plugin files, but failed to load correctly: myplugin.vst3”
I have seen that this is has been an issue for other forum users who happen to be working in OSX / xcode and have fortunately been able to find a solution by changing their “Deployment Target” setting in the Projucer configuration. However, this setting is apparently not an option for Windows users.
I’m not sure what alternatives I could try as Ableton (my DAW) doesn’t yet support VST3 and even so I am hearing from others that they are encountering this issue when trying to load plugins into other DAWs such as Studio One. Obviously testing as a standalone plugin doesn’t work either as there is no way to process audio input.
To me this seems like far too significant of an issue to be universal to all Windows 10 / VS2017 users, so something must be wrong on my end… right?
