(113) Path Registry Not Writable

We are unable to save a path necessary for SteamVR. Your permissions may not be set correctly – make sure you can write to the user directory of your machine.


(200) Driver Failed

The OpenVR driver failed. Your permissions may be set incorrectly – make sure you can write to the user directory of your machine. If you manually added something to the SteamVR drivers directory, remove it.


(206) Driver Not Calibrated

We couldn’t load calibration file off the headset. Unplug your headset from the computer, then under SteamVR > Settings > Reset, click Remove all SteamVR USB devices. Connect your headset and wait for drivers to install. If this error continues to persist, you may have a faulty unit. For HTC Vive owners, please contact HTC at htcvive.com.


(207) Driver Calibration Invalid

We couldn’t load calibration file off the headset. Unplug your headset from the computer, then under SteamVR > Settings > Reset, click Remove all SteamVR USB devices. Connect your headset and wait for drivers to install. If this error continues to persist, you may have a faulty unit. For HTC Vive owners, please contact HTC at htcvive.com.


(208) HMD Display Not Found

Make sure your headset is plugged in properly. For first generation Dev Kit hardware, the proper cabling setup should look like this.


(301) Connect Failed

We were unable to start or connect to vrserver.exe. A possible cause is that the process is already running. Try quitting SteamVR, then starting the Task Manager. Look for vrserver.exe. If it’s still running, quit the process. Run SteamVR again. If this error persists, please send us a system report.


(302) Init Failed

Vrserver is having trouble starting up. Try rebooting your computer and launch SteamVR again. If this error persists, please send us a system report.


(1101-1112) USB Error

These errors are all the result of USB failures.

1. Unplug all VR devices from your computer (your Headset, and your Controllers if you have them plugged into your computer)

2. Go to Settings > Reset, and click 'Remove all SteamVR USB Devices'. Click Yes to confirm.

3. Quit SteamVR

4. Plug your Headset in again, and use a different USB port this time. Wait for drivers to install (can take up to 5-10 minutes)

5. Start SteamVR

6. If this error persists, please send us a system report.
