Update: Updating my graphics card worked, but steamvr says my controllers need firmware updates and yet don't recognize the controllers when I plug them in as directed.

Compositor error 400 - is this related to the new update? I've tried a bunch of fixes on the web, from uninstalling viveport to changing steam settings regarding my graphics card. And, of course, turning it off and on again a bunch of times. I'm updating my geforce driver to see if that helps... My eight year old is unhappy but not as unhappy as I am!

@f03n1x, @roguesheep
Yeah, I also figured out, switching to v1527117754 version at beta properties solves the problem. :)

Thanks @UNCLibraryVR !!
Switching to beta and then to the june 18 version got me up and running again.
Just a small note: the switch is in the properties of SteamVR [beta] (from the Steam app) not from the settings (from the SteamVR app)
Thanks Steam for a wasted morning.... :-/

Hey I solved your issue yesterday (before having more issues but it might be related to Unity3D)

To solve the issue you had, I had to make sure my graphics card drivers were up to date (I put off updating my Nvidia drivers due to having some frame rate issues in Unity3D), after a restart and installation of the drivers I was able to run SteamVR just fine, I guess you could try that, maybe it will help you out.

After this update SteamVR wont start my Vive due to compositor not avaiable (400) error ! BEFORE update HTC worked perfectly!
I tried everything, nothing works!

Hello, i agree with Robbin. In new version with Always On reprojection mode image "swims" when you moving quickly or jumping. It's really uncomfortable. Is anyone also has this problem?

SteamVR Status "This app is preventing you from restarting" errors when rebooting or logging off in Windows 10. Prior to this version, it would shut this app and Steam down shortly after the reboot/logoff process was requested.
