Compositor is not running -203


Recommended Posts



I am currently playing Elite Dangerous using the Vive and its absolutely fantastic. The issue is that periodically the headset will turn off, I take off the headset and look at the software and it has the error 'Compositor is not running -203' I turn it back on and the headset starts working again. 


Problem is it has borked my characters positioning in the game and I have to force close the program and lose progress. As you can imagine this is pretty annoying.


Has anybody encountered this issue? Perhaps with the same game or another program? I cant really find much information about it aside from a few reddit posts with useless information telling me to delete files.


Any help would be apreciated,

Some users have had some luck deleting their Steamvr VRSETTINGS file.
The default path is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\config and you're looking for "Steamvr.vrsettings"

Delete that. (Or back it up elsewhere if you've got a custom configuration) When you run SteamVR again, it will automatically create a fresh config file which may resolve your issue.

Thank you,
