Vive Pro 2 setup - with original setup file vs steam vive console


Recommended Posts

I ve got one question that cant let me sleep well.

When I got my new Vive pro 2 one year ago , I used original setup file from the Vive website.  During setup vive software is being installed and steamVR.  It was like that through few months till Steam platform decided to create its own Vive console. 

There are two strange things. Normally when steamVR is installed through Vive software , then something strange happens in the steam platform because it gives information like SteamVR was not yet installed and suggests doing it. Then If you accept it , vive console (steam version) is being installed. And then some real problems occur.

If I turn on the the headset some errors appear , it looks that there are some conflict between Vive Software and SteamVR & Vive console from Steam. 

I ve just reinstalled whole Windows and I am ready to install Vive Pro 2 software. Please can you write step by step what should I install so not do create any coflict with steam? What should I install from steam platform and what I shouldnt download from there.

I usually do this rundown -> install Steam, SteamVR, then Vive Console for SteamVR. 
And when you want to use Vive Pro 2 -> Launch Vive console for SteamVR.

All right , so you suggest not to use any setup file from VIVE official website, only download SteamVR and Vive console from Steam,  then connect HMD with linkbox to the computer , turn it on and done?
