Wavelab update 9.5.20 causes issues with plug-ins

After updating Wavelab 9.5 to the 9.5.20 version, I no longer have any plug-ins including most of the Wavelab stock plugs. I rolled back to the previous version of Wavelab and all is well there. Any thoughts?

  1. Try to force a rescan: open the WaveLab preferences, Plugin page, then click on the button at the bottom:

“Force Plug-in detection at next launch”

Restart WaveLab.

  1. If that does not help, try this:

Locate the following file:
Windows 10
C:\Users[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 9.5\Startup.ini
/Users/YourName/Library/Preferences/WaveLab Pro 9.5/Startup.ini

Then open it and add this entry:


Then do the operaton described in #1.


Thanks brother, I will give it a go.

PG, you are a life saver! Worked perfectly. Thank you.

Did you succeed with #1 only or #2 ?

#2 did it…
