Build Error: the Command "set local"

I’m using the project generator to make my vst plugins, and when I build in visual studio, I get the error:
"MSB3073 The command “set local”
Is there a way to make it stop throwing this error?

I do not know but I would really like that too :confused:

See Preparation on Windows - VST 3 Developer Portal

By default, it tries to create symbolic links in the Common/VST3 folder, which requires Administrator access (indeed, any activity in this folder requires admin rights). Perhaps the simplest way to to prevent the error is to run VS as an admin, then open the solution, and try building.
In my experience, this is not really necessary, just convenient. Even with the error, should still have a build of your plugin, that you can copy by hand to any VST3 folder you wish.
