Hello folks, I could use some help here. Hope this is an appropriate place to ask.
A power supply failure took down my system, and in the process corrupted the C drive to the point where a reformat and clean install of Windows was needed.
Before I turned my attention to my 8KX I reinstalled Steam. My Steam Library had been on another drive, so in the Steam preferences I added my old Steam Library folder and made it the default. I now have two library folders in Steam, but all my games are in the old folder which is now the default. That seemed to work as I can run non-VR Steam games.
I reinstalled Pitool (220.127.116.111) and PE (0.86) and all that seemed to work OK, in the sense that the HMD comes on as normal and I can see the PE user interface in it. But PE says that there are no Steam games installed.
If I click on “Run Steam VR” from within Steam, SteamVR will start, and then stop with a “Critical Error”, and give me the option of quitting or restarting. If I restart, it will then tell me that two add-ons were blocked due to a crash. One of those add-ons is called “Pimax”. If I re-enable them, it all happens again.
When I first got my 8KX everything sort of worked with Steam, so I have no real experience of trouble-shooting. Grateful for any advice on where to start!
