I just did a full system re-build, and this time I only installed Steam & Oculus's software , leaving all Vive software out of the system.
I got really sick of the Vive software always starting whenever I launched a Steam VR game with the Vive.
Is there any way to easily disable that from happening?????
So far it works really well, and the only reason I'd ever have needed to install the Vive software would have been to redeem the free games.
Considering that it's currently just Richie's Plank & Everest (bought mine just prior to the Start Trek promo), it's not worth the hassle.
Had they allowed me to grab Star Trek, I'd probably be a lot more enthusiastic to install the Vive software and check it all out again, along with their storefront.
Had it been something as great as Robo Re-Call, I'd have installed it INSTANTLY, LOL!!!!!
EDIT, just saw this posted elswhere:
To stop Viveport launching while SteamVR starts up, simply follow these steps:
