HTC Vive VR will not start

When I try to start the game with SteamVR running, it says it will try to launch. I get a "connecting to game" message for about 2 seconds in the Vive and then the window closes. No error, steamVR doesn't crash: it just won't start up

So is VR completely not ready? I thought we'd have VR implementation for BETA.

GTX1070
6600K base clocked
16GB RAM
Win10 64bit

    In another post for oculus, not sure work for vive, once you in the game, press o and game rendering in VR mode. however, the UI is not so don't think it is playable right now or I may be missing something.

    Press "o" in game, once you see the ship in space. VR mode is then active.
    See Oculus Thread for problems in VR Version right now.

    The problem is more complex for me with HTC Vive. When I launch the game it indicates that it is going to launch into simultaneous VR and desktop mode. After I click OK I see the SteamVR software change to: "(unresponsive) EVERSPACE" for about 1s, then it switches to "EVERSPACE" for about 1s then it switches to "(Unresponsive)" and the game has quit. I briefly see the Everspace splash screen before it quits.

    I got it for me. I don't start SteamVR first but start Everspace first, it will then in turn launch SteamVR on its own. SteamVR reports: Ready with (unresponsive) but it works after you hit 'o' to start VR mode in-game.

    In my case steam vr launches after I open the game but the O key won't turn vr mode on.
