The module I created doesn't show in Rack's Module Browser

hi, i’m getting started with rack modules developing but i have a few problems. i’m running win 10. i’ve already successfully built rack, and i created a plugin and a module using

the path of my plugin is:


the first issue was needing to copy inside the plugin folder (plugins/nzfs/ in this case) to be able to run the createmodule command (that’s not really a problem, but i’ve seen it’s possible to run just by specifying the path where it is, but i couldn’t make it work that way)

the real problem i have is that after creating the plugin and the module and compiling, when i run vcv rack the module i created doesn’t show up:

rack is recognizing a madule insede the brand, shouldn’t i see it? i’m using the panel provided as an exampel in the manual (MyModule.svg)

thank you

Hi @nzfs welcome to the forum. Having a look at your post above you mention the need to copy the helper script

From the folder D:\rack\dev\Rack\plugins\nzfs you should be able to run the helper script without copying it.

../../ createmodule MyModuleName.

As for the modules not showing up, my common mistake is not copying the svg file into the res folder, although it could be one of many things.

hi, thanks for your answer.

the svg is in the res folder, and i declared the module in the .cpp and .h file

edit: i misspelled the name of the .svg (yeah, really stupid mistake i didn’t notice). I just changed it in MyModule.cpp and now works. thank you
