Cubase does not detect any Waves plugins

Cubase 10.5.20 (Win 10 v1909, HP Laptop) does not detect any of my Waves plugins.

What’s truly bizarre about this is that they all work perfectly outside of Cubase (in standalone mode) so I know they’re installed/activated correctly. They are not blocklisted and do not appear in the Plugin Manager (not even as grayed-out entries). The VST3-files are present in the correct folder. All other plugin families are working perfectly.

I’ve tried everything suggested by Waves (as described below) including reinstalling the plugins.

In Cubase I’ve tried the usual things like deleting the relevant .xml-files in the Settings folder, rescanning the plugins, starting with an empty project, rebooting, etc. Nothing worked… :confused:

Here is the solution:

  1. Make sure Cubase is not running
  2. Delete all three folders in this folder:
    C:\Users\Anthony\AppData\Roaming\Waves Audio
  3. Restart Cubase!
