In this paper we use Langlands-Shahidi method and the result of Langlands which says that non self-conjugate maximal parabolic subgroups do not contribute to the residual spectrum, to prove the holomorphy of several \emph{completed} automorphic $L$-functions on the whole complex plane which appear in constant terms of the Eisenstein series. They include the exterior square $L$-functions of $\GL_n$, $n$ odd, the Rankin-Selberg $L$-functions of $\GL_n\times \GL_m$, $n\ne m$, and $L$-functions $L(s,\sigma,r)$, where $\sigma$ is a generic cuspidal representation of $\SO_{10}$ and $r$ is the half-spin representation of $\GSpin(10, \mathbb{C})$. The main part is proving the holomorphy and non-vanishing of the local normalized intertwining operators by reducing them to natural conjectures in harmonic analysis, such as standard module conjecture.
