VIVE SRanipal Installer Installation Failed - Error 1001 The system cannot find the file specified


Recommended Posts

Hi, I followed the tutorial and tried to install the SRanipal, but I failed the first time as my account is not a admin. But the second time when I am using an admin account, I encountered the Error 1001 problem.

It turns out I am not the only one who got this problems. Other users have similar situation as shown here

I think @nickie123 gives a pretty clear explanation. The problem is likely due to the incomplete installation or uninstallation. I have tried all the solutions I can find online but still have no luck. I really don't wanna reinstall my computer just for this SDK. Any advice would be appreciated.

I found a fix for this today, if you look into the directory in which SRAnipal is being installed, usually Programfiles/Vive, then go into the SRAnipal directory and copy everything out into a temporary directory. Allow the installer to fail, and delete everything within the SRAnipal directory, (this may lead to you needing to kill a running sranipal process). Then, copy everything from your temporary directory over to the original SRAnipal directory and execute the sr_runtime.exe. This worked for me, and no clean boot is needed. Seems the error is thrown after the actual install process, so nothing is missing even though it didn't 'complete the install'.

This worked for me but it's ridiculous how broken all of this is.
