Versioning - and hr1 files...
OK so here's something I havent done before -
I'm updating an app/set of plug-ins, to Version 1.3.0 - so the attribute Preferences>Project>Version> says: 1.3.0
There is no change to the sample data - its the same as V1.0.0
-- do I need to re-export my samples to new hr1 files? Or will new customers be able to work with my "old" hr1 files?
I'm also guessing as
doesnt include any version numbering then everything should be fine for existing users?
@Lindon Everything will be fine, the previous samples can be used as they are.
@d-healey thanks Dave.... this ones a small hr1 set - but some others will be a lot bigger so it will be a saving there...
Would there happen to be a forum post on how to bundle an add on version to a previous version of a vst( I couldn’t find one)?
Do I just package the new hr1 files with the new user presets and have the users overwrite the data, what about GUI controls? Thank you!
But if you just mean a new version of the existing product - it depends:
- if its just new functionality/UI elements/Presets etc. then a simple install that overwrites the existing product will work fine.
If you have a whole new set of samples (hr1 files) then you will need to have your install process either:
- overwrite the existing ch1 files
- remove the symbolic link to the sample files
Neither of these come as a given out of the box, but I suggest you include some sort of "reset my product" instructions in your product set anyway - Its singly the biggest support call I get:
"I've put the samples in the wrong place and now I cant get <product name> to relocate them"
-- and then they can reuse these instructions to do a "fresh install" which would give the product access to the new samples.
@Lindon exactly what I needed. Thank you
