I have recently purchased a VIVE PRO with the wireless adapter. I have a 32 g ram, nvidia 1080 card, running windows 10. I've got everything working except I get this compositor is not available error 400. the vive wireless box syncs up and says ready steam recognizes the headset but say NOT READY. Any help would be great.

@slbuckner, It it actually rendering/outputting to the HMD? For the past few months, SteamVR has been known to sometimes display this error message when the compositor is in fact running and sucessfully outputting to the HMD. If the HMD is operating as you'd anticipated, I would ignore the error for the time being - hopefully Valve will patch that behavior soon. Do you have the linkbox unplugged?

The HMD is black. I've tried both with the link box on and off. Plugged in and out. Updated my graphics card. Below SteamVR1.1.4 it says Not Ready in red and I get the Compositor is not available error message above. All lights are green on Lower icons and wireless says ready.

I would reinstall SteamVR at this point, just in case. Are you in Beta or Public Release branch?

I believe I'm on the public version. There are no problems with the base stations. Do I need to have the link box turned on for this to work? Just so you know my work environment, we have a fairly open office. We also have a Sonos sound system that runs throughout the office. Would this get in the way of the wireless signal?

The link box should not be connected at all if you're using Wireless. In effect, the Wireless adapter is it's own linkbox.

I contacted Steam and submitted a post on their support forum. We ran a system report and we were able to trouble shoot the problem from that. I had installed a program called "ALVR". It was getting in the way. Once I uninstalled that program everything worked. Thanks for all your help.

Thanks for letting us know!
I'll check into that ALVR thing.
