Just to clarify, you can run without the Steam client but SteamVR is still required. But if the issue is really about not requiring a login or internet access for locked down installations, you can try copying over the SteamVR folder and running SteamVR\bin\win32\vrmonitor.exe

Re: Vive without Steam!

Hey everyone, simply copy the steamvr folder (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR)  from a PC where you did install it online to anywhere on your second offline *secure" PC (via a usb drive) and the run SteamVR\bin\win64\vrmonitor.exe to get started. Same as you would with the app you are running.

Re: Vive without Steam!

Why in the world is this extremely important and useful information being PM'd to people instead of being made openly available?

@Rashiki

 

Since it's instructions to alter file folder structures manually and operate SteamVR in an unsupported configuration, it's not something we'll typically publish for every user to view. 

The use cases for this particular operation are generally limited to government or corporate environments were internet connections are highly restricted or Steam is not allowed.

Thank you,
