Krisfallion Posted October 6, 2018 Share Posted October 6, 2018 Hello, I got my Vive Wireless Adapter yesterday and I am having trouble getting the software to work. Here is what I have done so far: 1) I have installed the Intel card into a PCI 4x slot (only one I had available) and after booting back up I see a new unknown device in my Device Manager. I attached the cable and mount the antennae so it has a good view of my play area. 2) I charge the battery over night so that it is full. 3) Following the instructions on the web page, I unplug the old cables and attached the wireless adapter and new cables to the HMD. 4) I attached the battery to the wireless adapter. 5) I download and install the software from the Vive website. It downloads and configures but here is where my troubles begin: A small window appears called "VIVE Wireless". It has an animated icon and the text "Initializing..." in it. The icon just spins and spins and nothing else happens. It is stuck there and there is no cog or settings option that I can interact with. All I can do is shut down the appllication. I have tried it with the power turned on the battery pack and my light houses enabled. Here are some observations: 1) The lights on the light houses are green. 2) There is a steady blue light on the back of the PCI card. 3) There are four steady green lights on the battery pack. 4) There is a flashing green light on the top of the wireless adapter. 5) There is a steady red light on the side of the HMD. Am I missing something obvious here? The instructions on the web page becomes a little vague at the installing software part and I assume it is supposed to come up with a wizard to walk me through pairing the adapter. I have spent this evening doing a total re-install of my Windows OS from scratch, thinking it could be because my Steam VR and Steam was on the D: drive and the wireless adapter software always installs on C: but I am getting the same issue with fresh installs, no Anti virus installed, and all software on the C: drive.
