Waves Plugins

Long time Sound Forge (SF) user and just upgraded to what-I-believe is the latest version (17.0.2).

My licensed Waves plugins now crash SF - not sure why, just need help please - I'm in a session and cannot get any of them to load. They ARE in the "FX Plugin-Ins" menu dropdown mega-menu and they DO work in my DAW. However, when I try to select them in SF, I just get errors and the software hangs.

The error message I receive is:

Problem Description

The main one I want to use is the "L2 Ultramaximizer" plugin but there are few others that also just cause SF to hang.

Any help is much appreciated tech team!
