I need some help. Just learning c++ and all this stuff and set up a testbed plugin, which somehow works now quite nice. Now I thought, to implement some other ideas, I could duplicate my project jsut to have my code as a basic step for further tweaking. Let me show this, I want to duplicate the project "SRChannel" to "SRExample".

First thing is, seems to have a problem with some git stuff, don't know if this causes the problem since I didn't set up git by now:


copying gitignore template into project folder
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 181, in <module>
  File "", line 176, in main
    copy('gitignore_template', output + "/.gitignore")
  File "C:\Python27amd64\lib\", line 133, in copy
    copyfile(src, dst)
  File "C:\Python27amd64\lib\", line 96, in copyfile
    with open(src, 'rb') as fsrc:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'gitignore_template'

Now I want to compile it. I change the plugin ID, now it should compile but it sais:

(non German speaker: note: see previous definition of: X; [...] warning C4005: "YZ": new macro definition)

For my newby eyes it looks like the project is using both resources.h files from either projects, but I can't find the place where this is stated. No plain text file in the project contains the path to the old project.

Can someone help?

Can't help with the Python part but just FYI, there's another way to copy iPlug projects which works fine for me (Win only though).
