cmake problem: SMTG_PACKAGE_ICON_PATH is not set to (as expected)

Hello Mr. Pirkle.

I'd like to try coding a vst3 plugin, using your ASPIK SDK.

I downloaded the latest VST_SDK, AU_SDK and cloned the github ASPIK repository.

After setting up the SDK, as described in the documentation (I hope I did), I created a new project with the ASPiKreator.

At the point when I run Cmake, it outputs some messages, i.a. this one:

SMTG_PACKAGE_ICON_PATH is not set to (as expected) : C:/Users/musikus/source/repos/ALL_SDK/VST_SDK/VST3_SDK/doc/artwork/VST_Logo_Steinberg.ico

The "doc" subdirectory doesn't exist in the VST3_SDK folder structure, it is current named "vst3_doc". In the end the Visual Studio files are not created in the  win_build folder.

I created a new "doc" folder at the location where cmake expected it and copied the artwork folder into it, so cmake was able to create the Visual Studio files.

Is there maybe a way to change a setting in the ASPiKreator preferences,  or similar? So that there is no need to touch the VST3_SDK folder structure?


Thank you very much in advantage.

Best regards,

Found a way that works, for me.

I edited a line in the "ASPiK\PluginTemplate\project_source\cmake\vst_cmake\CMakeLists.txt" file.

I guess this is the template for the vst plugins part..?


Changed the line fom:

set(DEFAULT_ICON_PATH ${SDK_ROOT}/doc/artwork/VST_Logo_Steinberg.ico)


set(DEFAULT_ICON_PATH ${SDK_ROOT}/vst3_doc/artwork/VST_Logo_Steinberg.ico)


I hope there are no side effects to other things...


Best regards,

I just got the same issue.... Fixed it the other way around.... Renamed the vst_doc folder in the sdk to doc..... (edit.... I see you did that first too!) 

This only seems an issue for cmake on windows.....
