I solved the issue by uninstalling the Vive software and SteamVR and then reinstalling SteamVR. Don't know if this will help everyone out though.

Just open the Task Manager, select vrserver and end the task.

I just started getting this error too. I went to the task manager and closed vrserver then went to steamvr setting and went to a nonbeta build. It's working again!

Its still happening with this beta build please fix

Ending vrserver.exe in task manager worked for me as well. I get this message constantly when starting SteamVR

Of course it work. The problem is it will do the same when you start up your PC the next day.

You rock Pablo. Solved!

Using the task manager is a usable workaround, but what is going on here? Why is steam attempting to terminate vrserver.exe when you press the vr button to start vr services, and what is keeping it from being able to do so? Even more importantly is there a more permanent fix.

I have tried running steam as administrator, but that did not help. I have played with altering permissions to vrserver.exe, again with no luck.
