OK, I wanted to try to get this resolved so I copied the old Wavelab install directory into c:\Program Files (x86) on my new Win 8 pc and tried to launch the program .exe without first having applied the Windows 8 x64 patch referenced in the sticky above.

First of all I got

Well in the absence of feedback I went ahead and set up reactivattion via MySteinberg and the new eLicenser, and the good news is that Wavelab subsequently started, and appears to be working normally based on a **quick** inspection.

However, I then went to install the Windows 8 x64 patch, and was somewhat dismayed to get exactly the same sequence of errors as initially detailed (insufficient hard disk space, etc).

What is the significance of all this and can you rework that installation file?

I just had the same problem and got the same message. Windows 7 64 bit 1,500 Gigs of room. I thought my DVD drive had gone. But I tested it and all was good.

So I tried it on my office XP 32 bit machine and the install widow opened right away??
So I dragged and dropped the DVD content to a USB drive and that worked perfectly on the W7 computer system.
Gives me a back up too.

Looking forward to using Wave lab again. I lost it with WL 5 when I upgraded to W7.
I see the layout is about the same.

The e licence is scary as always.. I would rather use the USB dongle than the soft key.

I think you can move the soft key onto a physical dongle.
