Hi I've installed MaxxBass and Ps22 from Waves (Windwo 8 64bit StudioOne2.6)

whenever I launch Studio One, it keep asking to 'Select Waves 9.2 Plug-ins folder'

I've succesfully selected the ditrectory (D;/Waves/Plug-in) and hit 'select' and passed

But the problem is,,,, Waves keep asking for 'select Waves 9.2 Plug-Ins folder' whenever launching the Studio One 2 even though I've already select it.

also after select plug-in folder, in a Studio One Song project,
when I insert Maxxbass or Ps22, it ask again "select Waves 9.2 Plug-Ins folder"

then I can use those plug-ins.....

uninstall it and reinstalling doesn't solve the problem

I've done this 5 times but nothing is changed.

What should I do? hele me!

<PS : I've already talk to Waves guy, but they keep saying uninstall and reinstall it.. >

everything fine here with S1 2.6 and Waves Gold 9.2 on OSX. Did you try to reinstall waves plugins using the default path?

You need the WavesShell-VST 9.2 (DLL file) in your vst folder.

Call Waves on the phone tomorrow. They have outstanding technical support and will get you sorted out very quickly. I had the same message in PT at one point and I couldn't figure out what was going on -- they helped me solve it immediately (although, for the life of me, I can't remember what the solution was. Reinstallation may very well do it for you, though, as that can often solve problems of something being corrupted or out of place.

Put the WavesShell-VST 9.2 (DLL file) in your vst folder doesn't solve the problem

I don't use waves, so I can be wrong... Try to delete all waves files, including appdata (c:\users\username\appdata) and register data, and install it again. I've heard that waves uninstaller doesn't delete all files properly, and you should delete them manually
