Error launching Half Life: Alyx

Did a pre-download of Half Life: Alyx and launched it today. I got this error:

SteanVR failed initialation with error code VRintError_Init_PathRegistryNotFound: Installation path could not be located (110)"
Please verify SteamVR is properly installed and try again.

I uninstalled it and downloaded it again. Launched and got the same error again. I am able to play Rift games on my Quest so I know it's not a connection issue.

    You were able to pre-download most of the game before official launch. I did the same and only had to wait for it to install once the game was officially launched at 5pm gmt. It works fine for me, absolutely brilliant game! I hope the op manages to get it sorted.

    @Dr.sTaTic

    Have you been able to play any SteamVR games on your Quest via link?

    I did not know you could do that, I'm always late to the party - lol.  Seems to play quite good for me on Quest Link,  Not perfect by any means but playable all the same. Took about 3 hours to download and install though - lol

    Yes, I am able to play other SteamVR games on your Quest via link. Half Life: Alyx is my only issue. :(

    Did you find a fix? Exact same issue here. Other Steam VR games work fine, just Alyx has the 110 error. I too have reinstalled it with no change (and it takes a few hours!). Very frustrating. I have found some fixes for the error itself for other games, but none of them worked.

    The 110 error code seems to do with having special characters in your user name (this was a 2016 post so i would have hope they fixed it)

    For me, it was a problem with having a foreign character in my windows username that messed up SteamVR for me
    if you check C:/users you will see there is created a new folder with a weirdly typed version of your username

    copy C:/Users/your_proper_username/AppData/Local/openvr to C:/Users/your_weird_username/AppData/Local/openvr

    And you wont get that error when launching steamvr anymore about and everything should work. 

    Worth a look.
