    I was bouncing back and forth between SteamVR and WMR headsets while testing functionality and managed to hard lock the entire system (Ctrl+Alt+Del wouldn't even respond).

    This occurred as I had powered off the Vive and powered on the G2 (WMR) without first closing SteamVR.

    When the computer finally came back, I was greeted with the below warning, and a total editor shutdown.

    Ouch! Thanks for the info (not that it affects me...yet).

    I hope you filed a bug report with relevant parties (Steam, HP, OpenXR).

    Not yet as I haven't tried to replicate the lockup yet. Certainly something I'll have to spin up a clean project to do so as I don't wanna risk corruption of data.
