Hi, 

I've been having this issue for months now and I never managed to solve it.

I am trying to build vst3 bundles, which seem to work fine on my device. However, when trying to run them on other devices, the DAW fails to scan them.

this is the output I get from Xcode:

CodeSign /Users/matteodesantis/Desktop/Audio_Software_Engineering/ASPiK/ALL_SDK/myprojects/Reverbz/mac_build/VST3/Debug/Reverbz_VST.vst3 (in target 'Reverbz_VST' from project 'Reverbz_UNIVERSAL')

    cd /Users/matteodesantis/Desktop/Audio_Software_Engineering/ASPiK/ALL_SDK/myprojects/Reverbz

    export CODESIGN_ALLOCATE\=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/codesign_allocate

    

Signing Identity:     "-"

 

    /usr/bin/codesign --force --sign - --timestamp\=none /Users/matteodesantis/Desktop/Audio_Software_Engineering/ASPiK/ALL_SDK/myprojects/Reverbz/mac_build/VST3/Debug/Reverbz_VST.vst3

 

/Users/matteodesantis/Desktop/Audio_Software_Engineering/ASPiK/ALL_SDK/myprojects/Reverbz/mac_build/VST3/Debug/Reverbz_VST.vst3: resource fork, Finder information, or similar detritus not allowed

Command CodeSign failed with a nonzero exit code

 

in this case I am signed to run locally in the build settings. Even if I change that and I use my apple developer ID it doesn't seem to work. 

I've also tried using detritus-cleaning apps but it did not work either. 

 

Is there something else I can try to do? Thanks.

This Stack Overflow Answer helped me fix this issue:

Go to terminal and type this command to recursively remove all the extended attributes in the directory and sub-directories:

xattr -cr <path_to_project_dir>

You need to codesign all VST3 (and AU) plugins for Catalina and higher. That is your problem. Xcode now codesigns your plugin for your computer only. 

I have just published a quick tutorial on this here:

It is not yet linked to a menu because I just published it, but it will explain that and includes a few links as well.

I have another student with this very same error, now (code signing failing in the final step).  I notice that both keep all their files on the Desktop.....I wonder if that's related to the issue.......

I'll ask my current student and report back (we never got to the bottom of why Matteo got the error).

We've tried the xattr command, by the way.....

cheers

although I can build from my desktop folder (Mac, Big Sur) without code signing errors.......I'll continue to investigate!

ok, we've discovered the error Matteo got with signing in the original post (which one of my current students now has too) is due to iCloud backing up the desktop.  If you turn that off, then the error disappears!

So Apple's iCloud breaks Apple signing.....figures.....

cheers
