my read is that it seems to be a permissions thing, but since i thought i'd set admin permissions for myself and for visual express i'm going to let someone with more of a clue have a go at where that permissions thing could be.

it did generate a effect.vst3 "packaged folder" here - ..\Documents\VST_SDK\my_plugins\effect\build\VST3\Debug\effect.vst3\Contents\x86_64-win\

which i placed into
..\Program Files\Common Files\VST3

but my host (eXT 3.0) doesn't see it, of course i have absolutely no experience getting my host to see a vst3 to this point so i wouldn't know if it did work.

i also tried changing permissions for
..\Program Files\Common Files\VST3

via properties\security\ ticking all "permissions for ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES" and unticking the read only attribute for the folder, but it keeps reappearing every time i reopen it and i keep getting the same error.

"alright really please can i have permission to use my computer" of course only by your grace i understand

:?
rebooted, still shows folder as read only, compiled without reported errors and created stuff in ..\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\VST3.. (forgot to copy report before closing)

a folder effect.vst3 which contains a folder Contents which contains two folders Resources and x86_64-Win, the latter of which contains effect.vst3 file at 8152kb.

in my host eXT 3.0 i see the VST3 folder but it still refuses to expand or acknowledge that there is anything inside the folder.

discerned that (until otherwise informed) eXT doesn't do vst3, searching for another host.

ideally id like to find one that doesn't ask much of me, hosts vst3 and vst2, and is based around a traditional sequencing timeline (something like eXT..) as opposed to converting a modular approach to something i can put notes in and have them play. i thought waveform free looked relatively straightforward but, while it does display the vst3 i compiled, i've been going through its bullshit for some time when all i really want to do is load a plugin and run some notes through it sort of thing. here typing because it decided to crash, might as well ask. it feels pretty galvanic, like tremendous calculations are going on when i press a button or try to make a selection.

my fault for not just trying savihost.

managed to get through operating tracktion's "waveform" (confusing name to talk about..) at the end of the day, it seems like my vst3 effect plugin is viable. that's the first time in the better part of two decades of attempts that i've successfully created a vst (outside of synthedit).

thank yous for your assistances.

still soliciting free minimalist host recs (hermann seib's host has a sync option that requires exporting a midi file) it looks like i'm going to be making "there's tasty" faces at anything under 100meg. eXT, my type of thing. like fclt.

thanks all.

I use Mulab for testing, but unfortunately, it doesn't support VST3. It's one of the next things on Jo's roadmap, however, from what he's said. Hopefully in the coming months... I like it because it's very quick to start up, you can easily manually manage VSTs, and it politely blows up if your plugin has issues.

I'd run into weird issues with plugins (not just mine) and earlier versions of Tracktion, so I stopped using it. I've poked a bit at the latest, but I haven't fully put it through its paces.

The other one I use for testing is Reaper. It's a little much to deal with for quick tests, but it's resilient and handles all the formats as well as bridging if you're still compiling for 32-bit.

a mess for me, i'd guess virtually every contemporary daw developer is interested in new features rather than stringent basics.

even if i can't use them easily myself, this still puts vst development back in my schedule, which will probably cover a few winter evenings. it will never be the '00's again, but it doesn't need to be.

to celebrate with the lovely people of kvr,

just beeped my first vst sdk native synth evar.

:) thanks for all the questions, it's been a loooong time, really due to my indignance towards ms bloat in contrast to fclt, but you probably heard about that already!.

Congrats! It's a long road, but there's something truly satisfying in getting a plink or a plonk instead of a crash report.

My first test ran, but made no sound--no sine sign. I traced it back to using ^ for the power sign when calculating the note frequency table instead of using pow(x,y). I blame Microsoft for using that symbol in the TRS-80 BASIC where I first learned to program! :dog:

Once I fixed it, I had a perfect sine wave. Old habits die hard. :lol:

spent today trying to parse what ms puts out about direct2d as the example does not conform the new information to the windows code generator format but puts the windows functions in winbase.h in an object oriented mode making you rebuild everything around that. so it's not facile to add it to anything you already have and it has caused the first system crash/lock up behaviour i've experienced on 10.

(winbase.h is not actually available but intended to be pieced together from a dozen snippets to make an entire document)

i would like to link this instead of the above start on direct2d because it promises "adding d2d functionality" but it's just as much of a fuckover so far eg. apparently i haven't figured out what scope to place things in so i get system restarts with long "sending a message to microsoft about the crash" % things.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... -rectangle

it doesn't help that the sample codes aren't available with many reported errors

but i'm driven to posting because i can't figure out how one copies a visual studio project. google is patterned with searches for carefully worded requests like "how to copy a project and rename it" - thought "save as" the solution in a new folder would do it, but i just noticed it's been rewriting over my old project for the last four hours anyway. the enticingly worded "build project from existing code" does exactly that - build project from existing code, not duplicating the code in the process. i mean you figure "save as" then getting another copy would be sufficient.

i will try and copy and paste the documents to a new folder then build from existing code and hope it doesn't sniff back and rewrite it. really this is bullshit.

When I worked with VisualStudio, a project (and solution above it) was merely an xml file with the project compilation settings and references to each and all pieces of source code + resources needed.

If you just copy the project file, both projects point to the same source files. Copy the whole folder instead.

The project file should not contain absolute file paths. Copying the full folder content should suffice, provided that the structure is somewhat straight forward.

For most Win development. You need to #include <windows.h>

The above will include winbase.h for you.

For Direct2D. You need to add #include <d2d1.h> and also add d2d1.lib for the linker [Additional dependencies]

I'm assuming you checked this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... rect2d-api

Note: If it's your first time with VS. Direct2D will be a heavy learning curve. You need some ready made example project. (assuming you got one from what you said above)

Also, if you're using VST3. Consider using VSTGUI instead of using Direct2D directly when ever possible. This will allow easy portability to MAC/Linux in the future. And at the same time you'll probably not loose in hardware acceleration because AFAIK, VSTGUI uses Direct2D as its backend in windows.

Coming to think of VisualStudio projects again, there was something iffy going on when creating new ones. Like it added the project name to the folder structure again. There was a gotcha that at least was not so logical to me.

You'll manage eventually.

Also using a source control system such as git will make life easier in the long run. It adds a bit of complexity (and takes some time to learn) but it will save your but. You can carry out experiments freely and revert back to where things still worked without copying the whole project. Your project can even go in multiple evolutional directions with branches, in parallel.

I've taught my colleagues how to use git (the basics) within an hour. Or two...

By default when you create a new solution it'll also create a project with the same name. Then it will create a directory for the solution and a directory for the project inside the solution directory. So the structure you get is really "MySolution\MyProject\" and it's just that if both the solution and the project are called Foo then it'll be "Foo\Foo\" even though each directory has it's own purpose (one is for solution, one is for project). This makes a whole lot more sense when you have several projects inside a single solution (which makes a whole lot of sense whenever the projects are tightly related).
Preferred pronouns would be "it/it" because according to this country, I'm a piece of human trash.

Yeah, iirc if you said you wanted a new project called fred located in c:\projects\fred, then the full path became c:\projects\fred\fred\fred :nutter:
