Tool libraries download separately. When choosing what to install, libraries are not selected unless you plan to use the tools. If you plan and want the libraries to be installed immediately with the plugins, then the downloaded Instrument Data folder with them must be placed in … Distribution \ Waves.10.Complete.vXXXX \ Waves \ Installers \ V10, and in this case they should be noted in Wave Central.

In the FL plug-in manager, add another additional folder with VST plug-ins along the path C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Waves \ Plug-Ins V11, then force the plugins to be scanned.

During installation, the error “sorry an error has occurred during installation” appears
Delete cache folder (DISTRIBUTION \ Waves – 11 Complete vXXX \ Data \ cache)

Release note :
Waves updates all plugins to V11 compatible,
we won’t release our special build. We recommend you to stay our last V10
release unless you really need V11. Check the official release note yourself
to see if you need V11 update or not.

The biggest issue is that StudioRack, MultiRack, SoundGrid Studio are not
compatible with V11 plugins in the current version. If you have project
working with StudioRack plugin, stay V10. Update will come in this year.


Legit installer has lots of installing issue, unrequired files, and lacks of
many WPAPI plugin which is available in our custom release.
————————————————– ————————–
First of all, none of previous Waves V11 uploads are working.

We saw lots of “Incl VR Patch” taggged uploads for Windows in P2P,
but it just includes our emulator taken from our last V10 release.
Try unpacking that “Patch” yourself and you can see our small DLL emu.
100% coded by R2R from scratch and nothing related to VR.

Our last emu contains license only for V10 and below, and it lacks the
license info for new plugins. Most plugins are working with old emu but
some others does not even launch. They are not tested by uploaders at all!

These are tagged as “VR” by $$$ making uploaders to avoid the restriction
“R2R releases are not allowed to be ripped.” Once again they show how those
ripped work does not work well. Non of those uploaders test it (if they run
each Waves product at least one time, they can find at least one serious

NOTE: the only real VR release “Waves Complete v11.0” contains their own
crack but not working as we mentioned in our previous Waves releases. Same
issue since the beginning.

  3. flow

    Try to not install directly from .dmg and drag “MAC” folder in your mac instead, and choose “install.cen” instead of : “Waves – 11 Complete 11.0.50”

  4. dgeck

    For Mac, do you need visual C++ and computer to be in latin? Getting the installation error as well.

  5. Kayceyogan

    Please get Audified Vocalmint Saturator and Process audio Sugar. Thanks

  6. Cavendish

    FOr those who can’t get the installer working in mac, just place the files( data folder and install.cen) to User/Public/Waves Offline Installers and try installing it from there

    I loved reading this. It didn’t help with my issue though…? I already have loads of bought Waves plugins. What if I lose all of them?

  11. Kuit

    Hoping someone can help?

    I open Waves Central (11.0.60), continue offline, browse for an Offline Installer and then select install.cen which brings up the list of plugins however when I check a plugin to be installed I do not get SD or HD (blue or grey), when I click install it prepares and copies to around 60% and then I get the message “Installation failed Please restart or contact support if repeats”.

    I’ve tried moving to User/Public/Waves Offline also but still no joy, anyone know how to get over the final hurdle?

    Cheers K

    Here’s what I did to get Waves set up on Catalina. I included some extra steps I took to be extra careful, and to avoid Waves Central from updating to another version.

    1. Install Waves Central. Do not open it just yet.
    2. Create a Waves account at waves.com.
    3. Disconnect your internet connection entirely, and then open Waves Central. You will get a prompt asking you to login.
    4. Reconnect to the internet while at the login prompt and make sure you are connected to the internet again. Use the account you made on waves.com to log in.
    5. Go to the Offline Installer tab on the left hand side, and then click “Create an offline installer.” Choose the install.cen file provided. Idk if this is broken, but for me, when I selected this, it did nothing at all. You should still take this step to be 100% sure that you’re doing it correctly.
    6. Exit Waves Central and disconnect from the internet.
    7. Open Waves Central WHILE DISCONNECTED FROM THE INTERNET. You will get reprompted to log in with your waves.com account.
    8. Reconnect to the internet again (like in Step 4) and log in using your account. You can remain online for the remainder of the process.
    9. Go to “Install Products” as we’ll be using Waves Central to download your preferred plugins from the Waves server. Do not choose the ones that have sample libraries or other libraries included. You will know that plugin has additional libraries if it has an SD, HD or both marker on it.
    10. Waves Central will download and install your selected plugins. After installation completes, restart your computer.
    11. Before you open your DAW, install WavesLicenseEngine provided in the torrent.
    12. Run Waves AU Reg Utility. It should be in your Waves application folder. The filepath for me was /Applications/Waves/WaveShells V11/. Depending on how many Waves plugins you downloaded, there will be multiple Waves AU Reg Utilities to run. For me, I had to run Waves AU Reg Utility 1, 3, and 6, but those numbers may vary depending on the type of plugins you install.

  15. Sebastian

    There’s no WavesLicenseEngine.bundle.exe in the torrent

  16. Sebastian

    I made this work,
    I tested it in windows 10

    In step 3 instead of searching that folder you have to open install.cen
    In final step, when you have to patch it, you have 2 options i guess
    As the torrent doesn’t have that .exe, i’ve just download a torrent from a previous version and the exe is just an extraction folder that make you the work

    So, i guess the way to manually patch the program is copy pasting the WavesLicenseEngine.dll in
    %PROGRAMDATA%\Waves Audio\Modules\WavesLicenseEngine.bundle\Contents
    there will be the folders win32 and win64, so you have to paste it In one of those folders, respectively

    I hope it work for you, sorry 4 my english

    If it isn’t working try these steps
    1. Uninstall waves
    2. Delete all the files from the following:
    C: \ Program Files \ Common Files \ VST3 – WaveShell1-VST3 …
    C: \ Program Files \ VSTPlugins – WaveShell1-VST …
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Common Files \ VST3 – WaveShell1-VST3 …
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Common Files – WPAPI
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ VstPlugins – WaveShell1-VST …
    C: \ Program Files (x86) – Waves, Waves Central
    C: \ Users \ NAME \ – .Waves Central
    C: \ Users \ NAME \ AppData \ Local – Waves Audio
    C: \ Users \ NAME \ AppData \ Roaming – Waves Audio
    C: \ Users \ Public – Waves Audio
    3. Now disconnect your internet connection.
    4. Install Waves again
    5. Block waves from auto-updating (the root of the problem) by :
    From start menu, search for “Firewall” and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
    Choose Outbound Rules from the tree at the left.
    Choose New Rule… from the menu at the right.
    New Outbound Rule Wizard opens. This is really easy now:
    a. Select Program as rule type.
    b. Select the file from C:\Program Files\Waves Central\Waves Central.exe.
    c. Choose Block the connection.
    d. Choose the profile this rule applies to that is select all three.
    6. Now open waves central and select offline install and browse to the downloaded directory.
    7. Select the plugins you want to install and click install and run the patch from the downloaded directory.
    8. These plugins should be available in your DAW for use.

    – Install Waves Central
    – Move “Data” Folder (≈5GB) and “Install.cen” to User/Public/Waves Offline
    – Start Offline Installation
    – Resart you computer
    – Execute Waves Licencer
    – Execute all the Waves AU Reg Utilities in the Waves folder in the launchpad
    – Done ! all the plugins works for me in Ableton
