I have the waves silver bundle and use it on my mac with pro tools no problem but I also have windows XP installed on my bootcamp side of the drive where I run Sonar 8.5 and Sound Forge. For some reason waves doesn't work even though it is compatible with windows XP. Why is this? I email waves and they just said bootcamp is not compatible! But its running windows so why? Any ideas?


Do you have your iLok drivers installed in Windows XP? Go to ilok.com and make sure your ilok is recognized.

I ran bootcamp with Windows 7, Waves worked fine on both the Windows and Mac side. I can't imagine it would be different with XP.
