I am having trouble building an automated installation for my plugin.
My target is Protools systems running OS X that have not had Max/MSP installed.
I first installed the Pluggo runtime 3.5.3 package. Then I installed my package which installs my custom external to /Library/Application Support/Cycling '74/externals and my plugin to /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Pluggo. Inspected the result, all files installed as expected. However, when running Protools, the plugin did not appear on the list.
Using finder, I copied the plugin to /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST and the plugin was visible. So I altered my installation package to install the plugin to both /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Pluggo and /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST. However, after running the install the plugin still does not appear on the Protools list until I copy the plugin to /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST using Finder. The package installed copy of the same file in the same location is not sufficient. The copy must be done in Finder ; "cp" at the terminal prompt does not do the trick.
My failure unit is running Protools 6.4 under OS X 10.3.9.
Any recommendations for installing a plugin so Protools will see it without the manual user operation?
