    I purchased vorpX today with the intention of playing RDR2 using Full VR. I followed the setup instructions and the game successfully installed the Hook Helper.

    On second launch however, I get the following error message titled “RDR2.exe – Application Error”:

    “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close the application.”

    I have verified that the game is set to run in DirectX 12, and it launches if the hook helper is removed and vorpX is closed. I have also confirmed that vorpX works correctly with other games.

    Is there any tips or potential solutions for this problem? I have no desire to use vorpX for any other games so may have to look into trying to get a refund through support if I cannot solve the issue.



    If you happen to use an Oculus Headset, please set vorpX to SteamVR in the config app. Steam/Dx12 games currently don‘t work with native Oculus due to a conflict with the Steam overlay.


    Not entirely true Ralf! I (think) I am able to run it with RDR2 in oculus mode.
    I thought that was the issue I was running into with the game hanging on loading the save, but it wasn’t.
    BUT, it may be his issue, who knows.


    You are probably using the Rockstar version then. The problem with DX12/Oculus is related to the DX12 Steam overlay, which somehow gets in the way. Can’t say exactly why, but setting vorpX to SteamVR resolves this conflict.
