    The latest patch update for wavlab 4 gets halfway thru the
    installalation then asks for the installation CD. Anyone know how to
    get around it?

    The patch is designed to not install unless the user is the original owner
    of the software. They can tell by forcing you to prove your ownership of the
    software by asking you too insert the CD (which has minor flaws in it the
    installer looks for). If you are not an owner of the software, then you
    likely do not have the CD anymore. If you are an owner and you lost or
    destroyed the CD, then contact Steinberg and they will replace the CD for
    you.

    This is simple. Steinberg does not want people stealing their software, so
    they do things like this to make it difficult to use their product without
    proof of ownership.

    An easy way to get around it is to insert the original CD....
