[Solved]Error "BE ADVISED"

Postby mdmd_md » Sat Aug 12, 2017 4:57 pm

Fatal error
SteamAPI_Init() failed
Steam must be running to play this game

Saw that there were some posts from a few months ago about this. Just got my Oculus Rift and the FlyInside demo. Bought an Oculus Rift just to run this program! Very cool machine.

Anyways, tried updated everything. Tried opening FLyInside with SteamVR beta running and shutdown. Same error either way.

SteamAPI v017, XPlane 11 updated by Steam, FlyInside v 1.81 [DEMO] downloaded today, Geforce GTX 1080 v 22.21.13.8476

Unsurprisingly I can run X-Plane 11 from steam as normal, not using FlyInside. I can also run other native steam apps in VR via Oculus or Steam VR. I followed the FlyInside installation instructions to allow the Unknown Sources option.

What other information would you need to diagnose the problem?

Hi and welcome,

as far as I know it's not possible to start FlyInside within Oculus Home. Or did you start FlyInside from the desktop?

Have you opted in the SteamVR beta?
I overread that in your first post. SteamVR beta is NOT working with FlyInside. Just opt-out of it and it should work

Yes, I had installed SteamVR beta. I unistalled SteamVR and I still get the same error when I open FLyInside XP from the desktop link, both when Steam is running and if Steam is closed when I run FLyInside. For reference, I have also installed FlyInside for FSX and that works fine on my machine.

You don't have to uninstall SteamVR. Just don't opt-in to the beta in the settings.
SteamVR is needed

I reinstalled STeamVR, did not opt-in to the betas and I am still encountering the problem. Unlike FlyInside FSX, which opens all the apps I need when I click on the desktop icon (Steam, Oculus), FlyInside XP doesn't open anything except XP11 and I get the error already mentioned. If I start Steam before clicking the icon I sitll get the error. If I have Oculus running I still get the error.

Woah! I found that if I simply "Run as Administrator" when I open the FLyInside XP icon, it works!

I use XPlane 11 in standalone, so that Steam is one less thing that i need to worry about.
