Projucer: How to change binary location VST, VST3, for VS2017


For the debug profile of VS2017 at the moment they’re greyed out:
I’m trying to build them to a particular folder, but they’re not editable in Projucer?


Well, I managed to add a post build command:
XCOPY "$(SolutionDir)$(Platform)\$(Configuration)\VST\myplug.dll" "C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins\myplugsdir\" /S /Y
I’m curious what the Binary Location fields in Producer actually do…
Thanks for any comments.


You need to set “Enable Plugin Copy Step” to “Enabled” (it is “Disabled” by default):


You may also need to alter the permissions of those destination folders so that VS can write to them.


Thanks for the replies.
I’m using the built in copy step now.
I did encounter the permissions issue previously when I started developing on Windows 10.
