    Hi!

    I'm currentlyy using unity Unity 2017.3.0f3 (64-bit) and SteamVR Unity Plugin - v2.0.

    I'm trying to build my first VR-project for my HTC Vive. The problem is that when I try to build it, it removes my action.json file, then gives me an FileNotFoundException error that the action.json doees not exist.

    The way I'm creating the action.json is: Window > SteamVr Input > *clicking yes on creating an example actions.jon file* > Open binding UI > Replace Default (for my HTC vive controller) > Save and generate.

    The actions.json file and a couple of other json file is thereafter succesfully builded and placed in the root of the project. But as soon as I try to build the project after, the actions.json file gets deleted and I get the following massive error messages:

    This issue was solved by creating a whole new directory for the build.

    Hi, having the same issue, how did you manage to make a new directory for the build?

    Hi, I simply created a new folder and put the whole project in there. Solved everything.
