  • How to completely uninstall Rewasd 5.0?

    Hello,
    After updating to version 5.0 it told me that I needed to install some new drivers which I did. During the installation of said drivers all of my other USB devices (keyboard, mouse and HOTAS) started turning off then on again and then it asked me to reboot my PC. After reboot I immediately noticed a problem with SteamVR. When SteamVR launches I get absolutely no input from either my HOTAS or Xbox controller. After fiddling around I found that in Steam app if I go to Settings>Controller then click on any controller related menu and then just close it without applying any settings I get my input back. Same if I launch Big Picture.
    This started to happen as soon as I updated to version 5.0.
    So my question is how do I completely remove all traces of Rewasd 5.0 including those drivers that caused all of my USB devices to freak out during the installation? If i just uninstall it via the Control Panel I still get no input in SteamVR.

    Hello!

    After you uninstall reWASD from control panel and reboot, no more reWASD drives are in the system. The uninstallation leaves some configs and license information, but nothing that may cause your issue. Could you please try to uninstall and reinstall reWASD again to check whether you have the same problems?

      I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with reboots in between but that didn't solve my issue. However I did a system restore to a couple of days back and that worked. I now have input in SteamVR again but I don't have reWASD anymore... I am a bit hesitant installing it again and also my Elite controlled broke some time ago (words cannot describe how furious I am at M$) so I'm waiting for Series 2 anyway.

      I did not install any other software apart from reWASD 5.0 and a single Chrome extension between now and my restore point so I am quite confident that reWASD caused loss of input in SteamVR.
