So i just updated Waves Central, and decided i wanted to try out Codex. So installed but cannot for the life of me figure out where it was installed. Did a plugin search in fl studio but nothing. It seemed to install the standalone version of codex though. Anyone?

EDIT: The standalone version of codex didnt get installed correctly.

Does the .dll "Waveshell2-VST3 9.91" show up in your plugin list? Upon adding it to your project can you locate Codex in the shell dropdown menu?

Multiple Waveshell dlls will show up in your list if you also have Waves effects products but only the one titled Waveshell2-VST3 can be used for instruments

I cant find Waveshell2-VST 9.91 only Waveshell-VST 9.6. And older versions like 5 and 5.5 or something. Should i remove all of the old versions and delete the registry perhaps? Also a pop up when opening waveshell tell me it cant find my licenses.

Yes, remove all old Waveshells. You find the latest one in the Waves folder under Program Files.

In FL Studio you need to have Verify plugins and Rescan existing plugins on for new Waveshell plugins to show up.

Actually I'll take my words back. I have been using Waves plugins with FL Studio without problems for so long that I forgot what's the secret.

Do not use VST2 Waveshell that's in the Waves folder under Program Files. With FL Studio use only VST3 Waveshell that gets dumped into the Common Files under Program Files. Waves plugins work properly only with VST3 version and this is the official supported way.

VST3 Waveshell will also recognize the difference between instruments and effects.
