Error when compiling and building AAX in multi API project

So, to help in learning this stuff, I created the sample gain plugiin. I targeted both VST3 and AAX for this simple project. When I compile or build the project I get the following error:

Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
Error MSB3073 The command "setlocal
cmd /c "C:/Users/Terry/Documents/Terry/Programming/Tools/SDK/AUDIO_SDK/AAX_SDK/Utilities/CreatePackage.bat" C:\Users\Terry\Documents\Terry\Programming\Tools\SDK\AUDIO_SDK\MyProjects\MyVolumeControl\win_build\AAX\Debug\MyVolumeControl_AAX.aaxplugin\Contents\x64\ "C:/Users/Terry/Documents/Terry/Programming/Tools/SDK/AUDIO_SDK/AAX_SDK/Utilities/PlugIn.ico"

endlocal & call :cmErrorLevel %errorlevel% & goto :cmDone

:VCEnd" exited with code 1. MyVolumeControl_AAX C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Microsoft\VC\v160\Microsoft.CppCommon.targets 139

This error seems to have only affected the AAX build, as it did not get created, but the VST3 did get created.

Since I also want to build for AAX, anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this?

Thank you

The issue here is with the batch file that is trying to be run (createpackage.bat) that creates the plugin "bundle" and then copies the AAX icon (a compound banana plug) over the bundle folder icon - that is what is failing. I am not sure why you are getting this error, but I don't think it is part of being a multi-API project. It could be failing because of a permission issue, or because you did not pre-build the AAX core Libraries. 

I will take a look when I go over the next RackAFX release.
