Hey there @mrsugmad
In a nutshell Waves plugins won't directly show up as individual plugins inside your DAW, they will all appear inside a main WaveShell Vxx ( version number ) folder. This main folder is visible inside your DAW if the matching WaveShell Vxx.dll file is installed in the correct VST folder.
Best way to download, install, authorize & update Waves Plugins is by using the Waves Central plugins manager application.
Please refer to Waves Support to learn more about this, those 2 links should help IMO
