Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

So myself and several people on the r/Vive subreddit with Ryzen series cpus are encountering a Blue Screen of Death and total lockups of our computers when attempting to use the vive wireless adapter. This issue eneds to be fixed and is persisting accross several types of Ryzen CPUs and mobos.

It also only seems to occur when steamvr is active. before that nothing will happen the vive Wireless app pairs to the ehadset just fine but when steam vr is used itll BSOD in about 2-10 minutes.

I'm having the nearly the same issue. Sometimes it will BOSD to a "DPC Watchdog Violation"

I'm having the same issue. The wireless adaptor connects and holds connection but after 30 seconds or so in stream VR I get the BSOD with the watchdog violation. I've updated all hardware drivers, including stream vr Bluetooth, and bios. Running ryzen 6 1600 on msi x370 gaming pro carbon mb, dual gtx 970, crucial 500gb ssd.

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

We are experiencing the same issues with Ryzen CPU. But most of the time only when we are trying to activate the Camera for SRWorks experience. I'm happy for a quick update, because we need to showcase our app on a fair this week...

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

@TobiVR, your specific issue may be because SRWorks is currently only compatible on Nvidia GPUs and not AMD chips. Other than SRWorks, is it stable?

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

Just was able to get my first real blue screen instead of just a hardlock and it was a DPC_Watchdog_Violation.  Decided to check the Steam VR logs to see the log that was updated just before the crash and found this:

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

Wow, so it looks like it's looking for 32 bit driver files to initialize watchdog mode and failing because the files didn't get installed or wern't bundled with the package. Good job HTC!

It works sometimes for me, but will usually crash when loading into games.  The Vive Pro and PC worked well before using the Wireless Adapter.
