so I just built a new system,
and installed and registered Vorpx again but it wont work.
any game I try just instantly comes up with that “failed to hook” window.
trying with games that worked perfectly fine on previous system.
the Vorpx Desktop viewer works perfectly fine so its not an issue with linking to SteamVR
Yeah none of that helps.
this is a clean windows install and nothing is installed that was not there on my previous system and I never had an issue with Vorpx.
I have tried reinstalling it but to no avail.
its so weird too. I have been using VorpX a long time now so I know what it looks like when it can’t hook into a game.
but now it does not even try, as soon as I launch a game it instantly displays the “failed hook” window. It does not even attempt to hook into a game.
just instantly fails
If nothing works at all, there almost certainly is something getting in the way. if you happen to use any other antivirus than Windows Defender, get rid of it. Regardless whether it played nice on your prior system or not. If you have any tools/utilities running in the background, try without. Regardless whether they played nice on your prior system or not.
my apologies Raif.
turns out I am a bloody moron who forgot he configured steam to always run as administrator 2 days ago.
once I removed that games are hooking again.
Well except for RE7 but I found other threads around that specific issue.
