Default Waves issue


I'm having problem with my waves. I found this (below) in the answerbase, but how do I create a new "Waves Preferences" folder (see 5. below) without replacing the Waves Preferences folder already there (which is containing the waves AU pref 6.0.9 and DAE pref 6.0.6) ??? Should I just replace/overwrite the folder with a new empty one, and then paste the Waves Plugins (alias) into it ? Cheers from Copenhagen.

Waves Issue In Pro Tools 8
When launching Pro Tools, the Waves dialog "Where is the Waves Plug-Ins folder?" may pop up behind the Pro Tools splash screen and may become inactive after bringing it to the foreground.

To solve this issue:
1. Right click on Waves Plug-ins folder and make Alias
2. Rename created "Alias to Waves Plugins" (capitalization is very important) to : Waves Plugins
3. Copy alias (to clipboard)
4. Go to ~/Users/Current User/Library/Preferences/
5. Create new folder and name it Waves Preferences
6. Paste Waves Plugins alias(from clipboard) into created folder (Waves Preferences)
7. Delete alias that you created in step 2
8. Start Pro Tools
