# Cubase 10.5 won't pick up Waves GTR3

Hi all,

forgive me if there already is a thread, I have searched and I cannot see this issue such.

Just bought Waves GTR3, and have followed their instructions to the tee about how to install. https://www.waves.com/support/how-to-find-your-plugins-in-cubase

Plugin manager won’t find them.
I have tried mapping the C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Plug-Ins V11,
tried C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves
tried C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Plug-Ins V11
tried C:\Program Files\Waves Central

I realise it is probably something that I am doing, but any suggestions what the path should be?

Hi Rohan,

All the locations you’ve mentioned should not be scanned! In fact, if you scan the main folder of Waves (C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves) or any sub-folder in it you will most likely end up having technical issues with the plugins.
