Greg: ok, i’ll try this as soon as possible, ill be out of town for the weekend though… thanks
Keltrivera and Greg: Check if its not your antivirus/firewall blocking any services, especialy if you have bitdefender, i’ve had a LOT of trouble with that. it would stop scripts from modifying files, prevent the connection to the server, and even mess up the download of driver4vr (error code: 5: Access is denied). reinstall if you have any doubt i guess.
Note: if i want the kinect trackers to show up in the devices running, i have to make sure the body tracking is turned off before i start steamVR, then turning it on, and start the drivers. its odd but you should try doing this and see if it kinda solve it.
