Question: Hi Justin, I developed a plugin for Reaper. I output the DLL and place it in the %APPDATA%/REAPER/UserPlugins folder. It works great on Windows, but on macOS platform REAPER does not load this plugin at startup. What do I have to do to run this plugin on macOS. Thank you.

    Hmm a lot of possibilities of why it might not get loaded. is it reaper_xyz.dylib, in your ~/Library/Application Support/REAPER/UserPlugins/ folder? Does it have any GateKeeper quarantine metadata set from having been downloaded? Does it get loaded at all? Are there unresolved symbols? Try running REAPER from a console and see if it prints anything?

    I made the DLL library into .dylib with g ++ CLI. I placed it in the folder you mentioned in macOS. But REAPER application does not install this plugin. When I run the REAPER application from the console, no output appears. Sorry I don't have enough control over both Mac and cpp.

    Best is to ask in the developer section of the Reaper Forum. There are plenty of people with a lot of experience bout that.
