Issue with VST3 Generator app

I have been trying to use the new app included with the zip file for 3.7.0 to generate a project on macOS.

I have been unable to do so. After I select (Welcome tab) the location of the SDK and the location of CMake, I can’t do anything else. It won’t let me switch to either of the 2 other tabs (Create Plug-in Project or Preferences).

Even if I quit the app and restart it, it is in the same state (and it doesn’t let me change sdk or cmake since the Welcome tab is now empty). I selected the /Applications/CMake.app for cmake and I am wondering if this is what causes the problem…

How do I reset the app so that I can select the 2 values on the Welcome tab?

Thanks

hum…very strange

on Windows the preferences are saved on in registry:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\com.steinberg.vst3sdk.projectgenerator

on mac:

/Users/YourUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/com.steinberg.vst3sdk.projectgenerator.plist

I met the similar issue.

At first, I set up “cmake-gui.exe” path as “CMake Executable directory” by mistake.

I fixed the registry “CMake Path” on

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\com.steinberg.vst3sdk.projectgenerator

NG “cmake-gui.exe”
OK “cmake.exe”

Then, I can generate project files now. :wink:

yes i could reproduce it, thanks, will be fixed in next update.

Known Issue:
If by mistake you enter a wrong path for cmake, the UI of the app will be like frozen, quit the app and clean the preferences for this app:

on Windows the preferences are saved on in registry:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\com.steinberg.vst3sdk.projectgenerator

on mac:

/Users/YourUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/com.steinberg.vst3sdk.projectgenerator.plist

on a mac if we can’t select /applications/cmake.app what do we use instead?
