Errors when building VST on Xcode

I recently updated to the new beta and am getting some errors when trying to build my project on my mac, specifically:

clang: error: no such file or directory: '/source/main/pluginfactoryvst3.cpp'
clang: error: no input files

and that repeats for:

I also get similar warnings:

debug.xcconfig line 1: Unable to find included file "../../../../../base/mac/config/debug"
debug.xcconfig line 2: Unable to find included file "../../../../../base/mac/config/libc++base"

all this stuff is part of the VST SDK right? odd that it is having issues finding it since it is in the same place it has always been.

I tested the new CustomViewsFour project on the beta page to see if was just my project but that produced the same errors. Any ideas what might be going on?

Ok I'm a fool I had it in the wrong folder hierarchy, Im still having issues with export however.

When I try to build I get an error saying "CustomViewsFive.h" is not found, it's a #include in the VSTProcessor.cpp, this happens in both my project and in CustomViewsFour. I tried commenting out the line and they both built fine without error. When I tested my plug-in in Reaper and Logic however my GUI loads as a black box, audio processing appears to be functional although without the GUI it is stuck on the default setting. CustomViewsFour however loads fine with GUI intact and functional.

FYI the AU version build's fine now with working graphics.

I tried to build it in 32 bit I get this error:

base_libc++ Group
Value Conversion Issue Group
/Users/samferguson/VST3 SDK/base/source/fstring.cpp:2130:37: Implicit conversion loses integer precision: 'TSize' (aka 'long long') to 'size_t' (aka 'unsigned long')
/Users/samferguson/VST3 SDK/base/source/fstring.cpp:2144:27: Implicit conversion loses integer precision: 'TSize' (aka 'long long') to 'size_t' (aka 'unsigned long')

Any Idea why graphics might fail in the Make VST builds but not the Make AU builds?

Hi Sam

Well, I'm not sure exactly what is going on there, but I did just upload a new Beta version of RackAFX that you might try out. I tested multiple plugins with Make VST, with no issues on Win or MacOS.

Some notes there:

- this requires the VST3SDK 3.6.6 -- previous versions will not work

- the mechanisms for rendering the graphics are different in the Make VST vs. the Make AU (and Make AAX) projects. Although they both use the XML file, the Make VST version uses Steinberg-only code, whereas the others use my own XML parser and rendering code.

- CustomViewsFour (and all the CustomViews projects) changed for the Beta versions; there are updated links to these projects and docs on the Beta Tester page (just scroll down a bit to find them).

You should not have any issues with the base_libc stuff - that is part of the SDK and is untouched by the Make VST operation, so that points to perhaps an older SDK?

Once you get a clean compile (with the new Beta?) but still have issues with seeing a black box in the VST versions, contact me via email and I can setup some time to take a look at your project.

- Will
