Could not load plug-ins in DAW


i am having a problem loading the Waves plug-ins onto my DAW’s instrument tracks. I use Bitwig Studio 3.3.7.
it says: Could not load plug-in. Could not create vst3 instance for class id 445514C53682D65712D6C69 A null component was returned.
I do not know what to do for them to work. They are installed correctly and appear in waves center.
I tried to clean uninstall all and reinstall, still nothing. They worked before though…

Please help and thank you very much for support!

I managed to speak to someone from Waves and after 2 hours of them trying to make it happen through teamviewer, they finally did it! It was a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable update that had to be made and after 2 or 3 restarts, my plug-ins are finally back! :boom:


Thats good news man. Thanks for providing us with the solution.

I have to say this is not the first time I heard that Visual C++ being the culprit. I guess this would just be another thing to check when nothing else seems to work, making sure that MS Visual C++ is up to date or maybe doing a reinstall. :thinking:

im kind of facing the same issue could you tell me how you got them to do teamviewer with you ?
I could really use some help :wink:

Hi @pat.official, welcome to Waves community forums.
