Cannot play any viveport games at all


Recommended Posts

Just started my free trial yesterday & downloaded the free games, none of them work.


I tried to launch through viveport in steam, vive desktop app, from the exe in game folders, NOTHING works !

When i try to launch them games i end up with an error message saying cannot start app or even worst it freeze up my computer like it does not respond anymore, had to hard reboot 4 times already.


No problems with steam vr games.


I really start to have a headache because of that & already cancelled my subscribtion as you can imagine.


Any way to fix this mess ?

Version 1.1.1 (r47)

File Path - c:\ProgramData\HTC\Vive (Found installed games here)

27.3 GB of free space left on my 256 GB SSD

Video Card - GTX 970

CPU - i5-6600k

RAM - 16 GB


Games that are crashing my computer - Everest VR, TheBlu(suggests a GTX 980) and Tilt brush

Games that work - Richie's Plank Experience and Nikola Tesla


The crashes seem to start with steam then it slowly spreads to the rest of my applications.

No, only games that have been installed through Vive. I've installed and played 10-15 games through Steam without issue. I've even played a few Oculus games with Revive.


Also, I was able to recreate the crash with two different vive chat agents. I have the transcripts if you think those might be usefule.
