I had the exact same issue. I finally decided to ignore it and just install the software from the Vive site instead. Everything's working fine now, without ever having installed anything from that zip drive.
I wanted to buy the HP Vive bundle but it was sold out or not available now... any idea if it will come back, or what was included? I didn't write the specs to the machine thanks-Craig firstname.lastname@example.org 6037727122
