Draverd Posted October 27, 2022 Share Posted October 27, 2022 I just recently reset my operating System. When I went to go reinstall my Vive Cosmos Elite it tried to install Steam when I had already installed it. I closed the installer, and tried again. This time when I went to install it I got an error with explorer.exe. I checked my Programs, and to my surprise Vive Software, Viveport, and Viveport Diagnostics were still installed somehow. Even though I just reset my PC. I went to Delete them, but it refused because it claimed the applications were still in use. I then tried to force delete the Directory through command prompt, and still no luck. It would not Delete. So I then went to the directory, and hit Shift + Delete to try to force it. It then brought up the processes that were open. I could click try again, skip, and cancel. Well each time I hit skip it showed me another process that was running. Well now since I had the process names it made it easy. I just had to go and end them all. Something weird happened though. I ended all the processes, and deleted the directory. When I tried to reinstall the software it would just crash part way through. I then went back to the newly created directory. Lo and behold there was suddenly a bunch of new Processes that were not ending. So I repeated the steps above by ending them all, and deleting the directory yet again. Finally on the third time it reinstalled. If anyone else is having a similar problem this might be your solution. Note: I used this Free software from the Microsoft store https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer Once you get the process name just type it into the search bar, and it will bring it up. Hope this helps someone. Cheers. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
