Help with waves in Pro-tools 8 for Mac

Prophet10
Good Day Gents,

Can anyone help me out with this question? I just got my macbook(not pro)and Pro-tools8"love it" and I'm trying to install Waves Diamond Bundle Version 5. I installed the waves but my plugins are not showing up in my pro-tools inserts. Does any one what I might be doing wrong?

Thank you in advanced

You have to transfer the license to run them onto an i-lock key. You need to go to Waves - The World's Leading Developer of Audio Signal Processing Software and log into your account and follow the instructions
Once the LICENSE is on your i-lock then they will show up

When Protools starts, do any authorization dialogs show up
(on startup)?

(if on a mac), what's in your

/Applications/Waves/Waves Plug-ins

folder?

And what's in your
/Library/Application Support/Digidesign/Plug-Ins
folder?

Do you see a WaveShell-DAE-xxxx.dpm
(or two)?

If you're not seeing these, then something's up with your install.

If you are seeing them, then you should be seen some authorization
dialogs show up when Protools starts.

By chance, did those auth dialogs show up and you when when
protools said when the "Do you want to move them to the Unused folder?"
dialog shwed up, did you say "yes"?

If so, then the DPM file got moved to the Plug-ins (Unused) folder and you'll
have to move them back the the Plug-ins folder

ps: upgrade to 6 if you can ..
