I’m playing around with the hosting capability of JUCE.
I use win10, 64 bit, Visual Studio 2015
First I encountered many problems/crashes with my plugins, which have an ilok/elicenser protection.
Then I figured out that in Visual Studio 2015 the DEP (Data Execution Preventation) configuration in the linker menu is enabled by default.
Also the randomized base address.
If I turn these 2 settings off, then the host support much more plugins and the crashes vanished
Maybe this is a bugfix for the Projucer workspace generator?
I still have VST 2.4 Plugins which do not load.
To name them;
All Steinberg plugins.
Groove Agent 4
Halion 5 / Halion Sonic
The Grand 3
They load as an VST3 plugin.
But as an VST2 plugin they do not load.
all with the same problem…
in the function:
static VSTPluginInstance* create (...)
The first call for:
The next call to:
newEffect = constructEffect (newModule);
I don’t understand the inner workings of VST2. (That’s why I want to use JUCE)
But has anybody a idea?
Tracktion 7 has no problem to load these VST2.4 plugs…
Also there is JUCE code out there, where I can load the plugins.
(For example: Carla Host)
Any tip would be really great to hear
