Waves V12 users: Read before installing the 2021.1 Update

Recommended Posts

If you are running Waves V12 plugins, please read before installing the 2021.1 Update.

There is a bug in a Waves V12 program called WavesLocalServer that locks a component used by Cakewalk and prevents the installer from updating it.

If you receive the Code 5 error trying to replace sndfile.dll from our installer, 
the current workarounds are, either:

1. Reboot your PC before upgrading; or
2. End the WavesLocalServer process from within task manager, and click Try again

Waves has been notified of this problem and will address it.
NOTE; This issue only affects the installer and doesn’t cause problems with the normal execution of Cakewalk.

Do you know if this is specific to waves version 12 or does it apply to earlier versions as well?

Hello! I would really like changes in the media file browser. Please add a one shot button, but so that this function does not stretch the clip, but just sounds to the rhythm. This is very convenient when you pick up a Kick (under the bass guitar) or Hat. Along with the One Shot button you should also add a rhythm button with a choice like in Tempo Delay(1\1, 1\2, 1\4, 1\8 and so on). I hope I was able to explain. Have a nice day!

I offset that issue by having a version of Windows that's not compatible with V12 plugins... And Waves changed their site in such a way that I can't log in using Firefox so...No Waves plugins will happen here.

Does anyone else have the problem that with the new NX Ocean way the headtracking app does not communicate with  the VST?

The other two NX versions (Regular NX and Abbey Road) work just fine.

The c000000000005 errors are not install errors. They are runtime errors. The offending software should be noted in the error message.

Going strong for 3 weeks now. Still can't login into Waves using Firefox. Just tried earlier today.

I know it's beside the point, but I have no trouble logging into my Waves account with Firefox 85.02.

I don't know that much about computer errors.  I just assumed it was the same because it happed the same time as the update. And it was a ???“5”??? error.

After waves completely deleting everything and reinstalling It was still broken. Waves replaced the  WaveShell2-VST3 12.0_x64 file with a newer and also a *******12.1 also.

Thanks,

I just tried today and no such luck.

The Enhanced Tracking Protection in Firefox sometimes block logging in to places. Maybe Waves put some tracking script at the login and thus set of that automatic protection.

Hey Max... I just started getting the 05 error myself (again). A few months back I fixed it by doing a Waves "repair" option as suggested on this forum which worked, but did not work yesterday when I tried that. Was just about to report the problem to Waves Support, but sounds like you already did that and they issues you a patch/fix to install? Do you recall the Waves tech support name that handled your issue? It might save a step if I direct a message straight to him.

Like you, it only affects certain projects, so I can work on other projects, but good to know Waves solved your issue (and hopefully will do so with mine as well)!
