I have created a new project with ASPiKreator
It can be compiled without any errors.
But context menu option "Open UIDescriptionc Editor" is missing in REAPER and in VST3PluginTestHost

My config:
debug x64
ASPiK SDK 1.7.2
VST_SDK 3.7.2
Windows 10 Pro
Visual Studio 2019

What could be wrong?

Hi Alex,

I can't say what might be wrong here. That should be working as you've described. Did you try and edit the VSTGUI_LIVE_EDITING field in cmake? It shouldn't be changed there, it gets set automatically if the plugin is built in debug mode.

Then shift + right click on the debug mode GUI has always worked for me on Win7. Maybe try opening it from a different DAW. I can recommend SAVIHost.

Also make sure you're trying to open the right .VST3 file. There are separate Release and Debug folders in the win_build folder where each build is placed.
