Project Name Setting doesnt change .VST3 filename

Changing the targets name in vs only results in an missing file error.
How can I rename my plugins target name?

You named your target initially in either a CMakeLists file or in a Projucer project. I would start there.

I tried this before, renaming the project does not change any target names at all for me

A really bad solution to this is to change VST3 project properties → Linker → general → Output File,
but you have to redo this every time you start up vs

Under the Debug and Release configurations in each of the Exporters in Projucer, you’ll find Binary Name. Changing that changes the plugin filename. (It defaults to the Project Name if you don’t change it in the Exporters.)
