@d-healey Have you changed some permissions somehow?
I think this might be something to do with it, I haven't changed anything but I am working across a shared folder so perhaps that is the cause.
My usual process is to use a
.pkgproj file from a previous project (it's actually one Christoph gave me originally). I open the file in a text editor, and replace all instances of the previous project's name with the new project, for example I would use find/replace
Michaela's Harp /
Sofia Woodwinds. I also change the version number. Everything else is left the same. I use a relative patch from the
.pkgproj file so I never have to change the paths (I always put it in the same location in each HISE project folder).
This is the only time I've actually opened a
.pkgproj files in packages, to try and solve this issue. I'm thinking perhaps the problem isn't with packages but something with the binary I exported from HISE. I'm going to update my HISE build and try exporting again.
What did you want to know about the VST/AU?
I think you are correct about the red text indicating it can't find the particular file. But what about the icon?
I'm making a demo version of Sofia Woodwinds and I've hit a weird issue with the installer. The app works just fine before it's bundled up in the installer, but once it's extracted from the installer it won't run and gives a message about it being incomplete. I've been playing with packages and my build scripts all day to solve the problem but I can't figure it out.
I have several other packages projects that work fine and I opened one at the same time as my "problem" one to compare the two. What I noticed is in the one that works the
.app file is in red text, doesn't have an icon, and it doesn't have the
Scripts tabs that the other one has.
I'm not at all familiar with how packages works or what these things I've noticed indicate. Can any of you shed any light on this?
@Dalart Yes. You need to compile with these options
HISE_ENABLE_EXPANSIONS. This is an unofficial feature though currently so you'll need to create your own method for users to install expansions. Once Christoph is back from his music writing vacation I hope we might see some of the expansion handling stuff from PercX make its way into HISE.
@alepan When you download from github do you use git? Or do you download the zip file? If you download the zip file, do you delete the older versions you downloaded, or do you keep all of them? If you do keep them, are you sure your project is pointing to the correct version?
