Default Pro Tools Crashes EVERY time I try and open a session

I get the all too familiar error every time I try and open a Pro Tools session. It states that waves5.2.dll is causing the problem and I have NO idea how to fix it.

I have LE 7.3 with Digidesign 003 running on windows XP. I have Waves Diamond and Mercury bundles installed. I am losing my mind here and have spent WAY too much money to have this program crash every single time. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Also every time I load up Pro Tools it asks me to select the waves plugins folder. I hit cancel and then an alert pops up "No Plugin files were found, X_WAVESHELL-DAE.

Also Pro Tools has this dialog "VOCAL BUNDLE Preferences with a box to check or uncheck.

Don't use AudioSuite
Don't use TDM
Don't Use RTas

Don't ask me again. When I check don't ask me again it will ask me anyway on the next launch.

Don't know if these are related or not?

Well, you might want to try upgrading to the most current versions; Waves plugins are at 6.0.5 last time I checked.

Another thing I'm curious about; why do you have both diamond and mercury? If you have mercury, that should be all you need.

I upgraded from Diamond to Mercury...I'm not sure why I still have both installed!

So you're telling me that in order to fix the problem I have to download upgrades...am I correct in assuming these upgrades PROBABLY aren't free?

You would need to check with Waves about that. If your WUP is up to date, it would be free.

I wouldn't know anything about the status of your WUP.
