Vive Software Not Installing


Re: Vive Software Not Installing

I had tried running as admin but that didn't work for me.  What did work in the end was to reset my default browser to Internet Explorer. I normally use Opera but after that, it installed fine.  I did notice, even though I already have Steam and it says, "Steam software found", it acts like it's installing something but just sits idle.  Once I plugged in my Vive headset the installation completed fine.   Good luck and see y'all out there.

Whenever I try to install the vive software, everything works well for about 5 seconds, then it crashes.

@DEV241, can you please search your PC for "Viveport Feedback" and use that tool to submit an error report? Logs/Error reports are really the best way to troubleshoot these kinds of errors.

Re: Vive Software Not Installing

I had the same problem (Vive was looking  for an update, but hung on some firewall settings).


Solution: Used a different internet, i.e. made a hotspot on my phone, used this on my computer, works!


Maybe this helps.
