How do I build the installer?

Hi everyone! My first post here… first of all thank you Oli and everyone for the amazing framework and community!

I made a nice plugin and all works well, but now I would like to build a “final product” that could be installed or copy pasted.

I see there’s a folder named ‘installer’ and a few batch and python scripts which I tried running directly or building from Visual Studio, I installed Inno Setup, made quite a fair amount of googling, etc… but admittedly, I don’t know what I’m doing.

Is there any documentation or would anyone give me a hint to point me in the right direction?

Apologies for the noob question, I am fairly new to C++ and compilation stuff.


The installer scripts on the master branch are a bit out of date and probably not working currently. There is a branch called new installer, and the IPlugEffect project there Has scripts that are more likely to work. I hope to merge this work soon but there are still a few more things to do.
