WaveLab 8 LE and Yosemite


when will be WaveLab 8 LE completely compatible with Mac OS X Yosemite?
I tried your “Steinberg Application Installer Tool for Yosemite” and it can’t find my activated license!

Please help!


Try this:


  1. Download Wavelab LE (www.steinberg.net/getwavelabLE)
  2. Register the software and get the activation code
  3. Download the latest version of the eLicenser and run maintenance.
  4. Download and install the Steinberg Application Installer Tool for Yosemite
  5. Install Wavelab LE as a trial version
  6. Quit Wavelab
  7. Run the eLicenser software and activate Wavelab

Wavelab should now run OK on Yosemite.

I still hav problem to install Wave lab 8 LE, following the above steps. I am running Yosemite 10.12.2 on a MacBook Pro 2,8GHz Intel core I7, 16GB DDR3, Intel Ires 1536mb

I cannot even install wave lab on Yosemite. It tells me I need another version of operating system.

Same for me : tell me “You need at least Mac OS X 10.6.0 to install this software” and I have X Yosemite 10.10.3

Any help please ???

The link you suggest only leads me to a page where I can by WaveLab 8 version and nothing else. Any other suggestions?

The first link in nickjhowe’s post was for the installer, but the link doesn’t lead to a download page anymore. But all Steinberg installers, old and new, including the latest LE8 can be gotten from the Steinberg downloads page: http://www.steinberg.net/en/support/downloads.html

Perhaps you just need the latest installer and not the Yosemite tool, I’m not sure. The latest installer is dated 5 months after the Yosemite Tool page, so the installer might already include a fix for Yosemite.

Had the same problem and it was easy to fix. Just read the text and follow the steps here:
