Why Pro Tools don't recognize my plugin?

Hi everyone!

I make an AAX plugin, and put it to the place that Pro Tools wants (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio\Plug-Ins\MyPlugin.aaxplugin\Contents\x64\MyPlugin.aaxplugin), but Pro Tools just don’t recognize it. I’m sure I’ve implemented all APIs that AAX requires (via depends tool).

There is something different in my plugin: I failed to generate the AAX SDK’s static library, so I put every cpp files in SDK into my project.

In addition, I noticed that AAX documentation claims Pro Tools requires a specific sign on its plugins, except development version of Pro Tools. Is it the reason that my plugin isn’t recognized?

Thanks for a lot!

I would say this is the main reason.
