  1. Hello to whomever is reading this, I recently got a Vive Cosmo Elite & was excited to try it out, only for my excitement to quickly sour when I attempted to run the setup.exe installer and it doesn't install. It will open, then says "Checking versions" followed by "Preparing" then once the light blue bar reaches the end the installer crashes and installs nothing. I've been wrestling with this issue for days now, combing through the forums of Vive, Reddit and Steam to seek any & all troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. I've deleted residual files that the installer left and attempt to install again to no avail. In one instance I've discovered the installer.exe application amongst the files and decided to run, to make something happened and it managed to install VIVEport. It was a step... a side step in my opinion. Then I attempted to install the setup through viveport and behold... the same result It crashed. I've sook help from the vive support team. Their response time (for me) took like 16+ hours but that's because they're in a different time zone so... I can't blame them nor will I for this. When I explained my ordeal to them I was provided 2 troubleshooting steps that in my opinion are one of the same. These were to delete any and all files and folders involving vive software (which were done) To manually open the setup file in the following file path C:\program files (x86)\VIVE\Updater\App\Launchers while turning off the firewall. For me, this file path did not exist for the software was never installed so I made the file path and again not avail. In waiting for a reply I combed through those files again & found the setupinstaller.exe and decided to run it because at this point I was like (FAQ it) and received an error message saying that it was missing a few dll files. Next reply from support and it was a series of questions 1) Are you using a home network; Ans Yes. 2) Do you have another computer that you can download and install the setup; Ans No I do not. 3) Do you Have another network to try; Ans No I do not. I reported my findings to the support team in that response and offered a report from the vive folders that shows the crash. Next reply was a step, to delete the vive files (which can be found in this file path { C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Temp (%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp) }) and uninstall steam and viveport. .....Steam?? why steam, what does steam have to do with this. Is what I thought so I decided to go forward with it because support provided it as a step. I painfully uninstalled steam and uninstalled viveport and made sure firewall was off, deleted any & all files that was associated with vive and manually opened the setup.exe in the previous file path.... nothing... no change... no progress. I decided to look and event viewer to see if I can get some more information on why this is happening, I discovered a Application error event that shows the following below. I came to the conclusion that it might be a corrupted install but even so I deleted all the files and try to install but the same keeps happening. So I decided to try an program I have on my PC called Restoro. a repair software that can restore and replace DLL files, perhaps it can restore the install, nothing worked so (FAQ it) I ran the program. Nothing same results... heart broken. Now these has been a lengthy forum message but do not misunderstand, its not a rant, yes I'm upset that I finally got a vive headset and I'm unable to use the thing and now I have to take it but I want whomever is reading this take something from my experience. Some steps that you can try if you're experiencing the same because you never know if one of these steps that failed me can success for whomever. A thread that provide some ideas on how to go by resolving this issue and if you got some steps of your own that you didn't see here, drop it in the thread. Build it up and make a thread that some could go to and find helpful information and not some stranger ranting and cursing the product without providing some steps, because that doesn't help anyone. Good luck to those who are experiencing this issue and hopefully this was helpful in some way and good day to you all.

  2. @sparda1023Hello Sparda, It seems that I'm having the same issue you had on April and I'm currently talking to support about my issue but I wanted to ask you about where did you get these reports from your PC? I believe it will help my issue if I could provide reports.
  3. Same here, having the same issue. It won't setup and when using steamVR there's no display on my headset but on my monitor is shows functioning fine and its the same for all my games on steam. Also I noticed there's a red LED on the side and looking in the user's manual it means its in sleep mode. I don't know if the setup is needed to turn on the headset or not. Please assist if possible.
  4. Hello, It seems that I'm this issue as well. I was able to download the setup from the link provided on the instructions www.vive.com/setup but when I go to run the setup it does this. First Time (I believe) Installing, Preparing then closes without install the software. Run it again. Checking versions Preparing then closes again. It never prompts me to the next steps for setup, what can I do the resolve this?
