Getting started: SampleAMPModule - Rust


im on the way to build a own Module and have some troubles.

What i have done so far:

  • I installed amp on my Windows 10 computer
  • I activated my developer licence [1]:
ampinstmgr.exe -o
ampinstmgr.exe reactivate AMPInstance1-ADS [myDEVELOPERKEY]
  • I installed the CubeCoders AMP VisualStudio Plugin
  • I downloaded the Rust Example [2]
  • I opened the Example in VS2022

Then i changed various things in which im not sure:

xcopy "$(TargetPath)" "$(SolutionDir)C:\Program Files\CubeCoders Limited\AMP$(ConfigurationName)\Plugins\$(ProjectName)\" /Y

IF NOT EXIST "$(TargetDir)WebRoot\" GOTO NOWEB
xcopy "$(TargetDir)WebRoot\*.*" "$(SolutionDir)GSMyAdmin\bin\$(ConfigurationName)\Plugins\$(ProjectName)\WebRoot\" /Y /E

I think something is wrong here.

  • I selected the external program (The amp.exe) and I changed the Working directory, after that i added the Command Line Arguments [1]:

Start external program:


Working directory:


Command line arguments:

+Core.AMP.LoadPlugins RustModule

Thats it so far from the Tutorial [1]

After that i had some missing References, those i added too:


Now i have some unsolved Errors:

:NOWEB" exited with code 4.	RustModule			

I think so they are related to the Build Path, i changed a lot there but it wasnt the right combination until now.
=> Could you help me getting run this ExampleModule?

Thank you in advance,

[2] GitHub - CubeCoders/SampleAMPModule: Source code for the Rust module for AMP for use as a reference for module developers.

I think Mike upgraded the plugin to VS2022 but forgot to update the sample / didn’t have time. @Mike can you confirm the sample is up to date?

What type of game/module are you trying to make? We generally recommend users to use the new Online Configuration tool for Generic Module. Check out

It’s not - the sample from GitHub definitely needs updating. Although it is something of an exercise for the reader to fill in some of the gaps :wink: The IDE is telling you where the problems are.

I am going to build my own Ark module, cause the existing one does not meet my requirements.
I thought about the generic Module too, but i didn’t see the possibility to manage this damn bad and evil ark server good with that.


Sadly i don’t understand the Message of the IDE what its trying to tell me very well. I have not much experience with Visual Studio and C#, so i hoped you help me getting this thing started. In addition i hoped i could help other people like me with this post too. Thats why i created such picture rich post due to lacking easy documentation.
But if you say its such easy to solve, ill invest some more time to fix it…
