Can someone help me? After upgrading Waves I cannot open my old projects.
      #1029176 - 18/01/13 08:11 AM
I've been using Waves 5 Mercury and been afraid that if I upgrade it then I will be unable to use my projects with Waves 5 anymore. But I read on the internet that it's okay to upgrade because the newer version includes all the plugins from the previous versions.

So I uninstalled the Waves v5 and installed the Waves v9r7, and when I opened all my old projects with Waves 5 plugins, pop-up windows said "Unable to create vst plugins: XXX"s...and all the v5 plugins were gone from the mixer inserts.

Can someone help me with this?

Version 9 plug-ins use a 'new' system to authorize which replaces iLok.If you have not already, open the Waves License Centre software.
