Hopefully, someone will be able to help me out here.
I have a Pimax 4k Serial in 100s. I was running 1.1.92 software and hadn't used it for a while but it worked.
I picked up a Rift with controllers as I wanted to play and compare them and have been using it a couple months. I decided to try out the Pimax again and plugged it in and downloaded the latest drivers 184.108.40.206 (I also tried .42).
Had some trouble getting them installed even with Windows Defender off until I found the link about the K-Lite codex and uninstalled them. Finally got Piplay to install, ran it and updated the firmware. It works in video mode fine. I reinstalled the K-Lite base package.
I cannot, however, get Steam to see Pimax. When running I get an error 306 SteamVR failed to initialize for unknown reasons (Shared IPC Compositor Connect fail).
I've installed the latest drivers from Nvidia (did a clean install). Shutdown and rebooted Steam and the computer and reinstalled Piplay a couple of times, including the beta version after killing background processes. I have also left K-Lite uninstalled now in fear that was causing an issue. Nothing is making a difference.
I am running Win 10, 64 bit. i7-6700 16Gig with a Nvidia 980TI driver version 387.92.
I want to be able to swap out headsets so I had not uninstalled Oculus home but I thought this was possible and not supposed to cause problems. I can still use the Rift once I restart the background service so at least that didn't mess up.
What am I missing here?
