I’m having some trouble building the project. I’ve just downloaded the VST 3.6.8 Audio Plug-Ins SDK and have attempted to build it using Cmake (3.10.1) through Qt Creator via “Open File or Project” and selecting CMakeLists.txt from the top of the VST3_SDK folder, as per the instructions in the docs. My OS is 64-bit Windows 10.
The errors are to do with vstgui and EXPAT. I am getting the following output from Cmake:
The CXX compiler identification is GNU 6.3.0 Check for working C compiler: C:/MinGW/bin/gcc.exe Check for working C compiler: C:/MinGW/bin/gcc.exe -- works Detecting C compiler ABI info Detecting C compiler ABI info - done Detecting C compile features Detecting C compile features - done Check for working CXX compiler: C:/MinGW/bin/g++.exe Check for working CXX compiler: C:/MinGW/bin/g++.exe -- works Detecting CXX compiler ABI info Detecting CXX compiler ABI info - done Detecting CXX compile features Detecting CXX compile features - done SMTG_AAX_SDK_PATH is not set. If you need it, please download the AAX SDK! You have called ADD_LIBRARY for library vstgui without any source files. This typically indicates a problem with your CMakeLists.txt file Could NOT find EXPAT (missing: EXPAT_LIBRARY EXPAT_INCLUDE_DIR) Configuring done CMake Error: Cannot determine link language for target "vstgui". CMake Error: CMake can not determine linker language for target: vstgui Generating done CMake Warning: Manually-specified variables were not used by the project: QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE CMake Project parsing failed.
Any tips are appreciated!
