Back in 2012, a Cubase-using friend gave me his old beat up laptop with Cubase 5 on it when he upgraded. I forgot about it years ago until today, when I was looking through one of my external hard drives that contains the hard drive of that old laptop. There is a folder called ‘Waves Plug-ins’ that contains .dll files of quite a few Waves plugins.
I opened Cubase (8.5) and in the plugin manager, routed the path to this folder, but they don’t show up. I also deleted the blacklist file which didn’t work either. I should also note that when I boot Cubase up, I can see their names being initialized, so something is happening at least.
They also appear in the Vst2xPlugins XML document.
Maybe I’m overlooking something very simple, any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
Any help would be appreciated.
