When trying to run ViveWirelessSetup.exe, the installer fails at installing Intel WiGig and says "Fail to install Intel WiGig. Please reboot PC and try again."
Event Viewer shows this:

I tried doing a Windows Reset (told it to delete everything on the drive). Right afterwards, I installed Steam, SteamVR, and then tried ViveWirelessSetup.exe and still ran into the same issue.

It's interesting that reformating worked but a windows reinstall didn't. What version of Windows were you using? (64bit, 32bit?)

I am curious also. I run the HIVE at stanford university (hive.stanford.edu) and we are investing a lot into the HTC VIVE pro with wireless. I have a fresh install of windoes 10 enterprise 64bit and the VIVE wireless driver install stopped at the "cannot install WiGig". I see the light on the card is blue. Not sure the issue. I will try to reinstall the OS tomorrow and see what happens. The system we are running is 2 i7-6950X with 512 Gb DDR4. 1TB SSD and an nvidia GP100.

I had these same issues with mine. After a while, I ran this:
C:\Program Files\VIVE Wireless\IntelWiGig\WiGigInstaller_VR_x64 but I set it to compatability mode, then I ran the original installer again and it all works now

I tried running the wigig_installer directly, that failed too.
at one point i think i stopped the installation mid way so it seems half the drivers are installed and it is refusing to over write the drivers.
What did NOT WORK
uninstall steam vr and re installing
running the wigiginstaller_vr_x64.msi directley (with or without compatiblity)
WHAT DID WORK EVENTUALLY
i deleted some wigig .inf file in the windows/system32 folder, and i tried to delete any registry (by clicking windows + r and typing "regedit") that contains the word "wigig"
i think deleting the inf file did it for me, because now i am able to reinstall the drivers and it is recognized correctly in the device manager, finally. now to continue installing the wireless !!

I have also tried everything else different PCIe slots X1 X16 Gen2/Gen3 and Steam VR reinstall ... no reformatting but I did a fresh install to a second partition ... all no luck I will have to try your delete .ini and clean registry of any WiGig references next. Thanks for posting this @slvador

I have the same problem. VIVE support is totally useless they even don't know abou this issue at all.

I just fixed the problem. What I tried:
reinstall steam and steamVR several tiems.
tested the card with 4 different PICe slots.
Deleted all "wigig" entries from my registry.
tried to install the driver (in C:\Program Files\VIVE Wireless\IntelWiGig) in a comapatibility mode
None of them worked.
I ran "Run compatitiblility trubleshooter" -> "test the program". With this, I was able to install the driver. After this, I ran the ViveWirelessSetup and everything is working fine now.

Yup, all the same issues here! It turned out the drivers from Intel were not completely installed. Windows shut it down for some reason, midway and wouldn't allow for the updates.
In device manager I located the "Unknown" source and clicked to finish the install. Then updated all my Intel drivers and double checked all the Intel apps had been fully executed.
Then, after a restart, permanently deleted all files and downloads of Vive Wireless. Started a fresh download, ran it and all is good.
My takeaway, make sure all the Intel drivers are updated first and windows recognizes the card. Then download the Vive App.
