HTC vive reconized by computer but not prompted to install steam vr


Recommended Posts

As the title says, when i plug in my htc vive to my computer windows installs the drivers for the vive but i am never prompted with the "Using a vr headset" prompt from steam. I have tested this with 3 different computers with the same results. I have tried bypassing the link box, ensured I didn't plug the HDMI into the motherboard's HDMI but my graphics card. I tried reinstalling windows 10 and still got the same result. I ensured my drivers were up to date as well.

Here are the specs of my PC if that helps.

core i7-7700k @ 4.2ghz  32gb of ram Gtx 1080 Windows 10

also tried a PC with a core i7-4770 @3.4ghz 16gb of ram. Gtx 660. Windows 7

Then tried my laptop core i7 something or other. 16gb of ram gtx 1050 windows 10.

I have previously had this vive working on my main pc and my laptop but that was 3 months ago. It has just been sitting in storage so i don't know what could have changed.

any help would be very much appreciated.

Ok it works, but only in non direct mode, even if directly attatched to the graphics card. what would cause this?

Edit:When in direct mode it just says " Headset not found"
