Roymus Posted October 14, 2018 Share Posted October 14, 2018 Hello: I'm sorry to start yet another "compositor not available" thread, but I have no choice...I've tried everything else. I just unboxed a new Alienware Aurora R7 with a GTX1080ti card...plenty of power, plenty of memory. I'm receiving the dreaded Error 400, and no solutions are working. Here are the steps: 1. Powered up PC and updated all drivers using DriverEasy. NOTE: I'm upgrading from an Asus ROG G20, where I received the exact same error...updating drivers fixed it. Also applied Windows updates. 2. Installed Steam and Steam VR, received error. Made sure all cables were installed correctly (unplugged and replugged all). Vive is connected to PC via DisplayPort cable and USB 3 cable (both new and verified working, as they were working on my Asus). 3. Removed SteamVR settings file from x86/Steam/Config directory. Also tried removing drivers using the SteamVR Settings menu (General tab) and resetting cables. No luck. 4. Tried uninstalling Steam and reinstalling Steam and SteamVR. Shut down PC and restarted about a billion times. No luck.I'm respectfully asking for any Vive tech to please assist me with this issue. This should not be happening with a brand new gaming PC with ne of the most advanced GPUs available. I have spent hours with this and it's clear that there is no solution I can implement withoutadvanced help. Please note that I am looking for a definitive, coherent solution in the form of an official patch or a systemic fix...I have already reset and checked cables/connections ad infinitum, and can verify that they are all working. One additional note: I have spent quite a bit of money on Vive and related products, and was in fact considering upgrading to the Vive Pro. However, I have no desire to go through this Compositor nonsense every time I change configurations. I have scanned countless posts on this topic, and most of the "solutions" posted reek of magic...unplug and replug cables in a specific order, restart at specific times, etc. HTC Techs: either the software works with a brand new gaming PC, or it doesn't. If it doesn't, please advise accordingly, and I will try my luck with the Oculus Rift, which reportedly is not as good a VR experience as the Vive but is a lot easier to set up. Note also that if I'm obliged to go with the Oculus, I will be sure to log my experience with it (emphasizing the setup issues as compared to the Vive). This is not a threat, I am a VR enthusiast (I was an early adopter of the Vive), and am a contributing member of various forums where I have both given and received help. Thanks so much for your help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
