    My project is currently built using Unity 2019. I have been avoiding upgrading to a newer engine when built-in vr support was removed in 2020 but now need to upgrade to Unity 2022.

    My entire project and asset database is built on SteamVR interaction system. so I can't use a new interaction system.

    Can I update SteamVR interaction system for use with Unity 2022 ??

    Thank you

    You don't update the SteamVR integration - Valve pretty much chose to abandon Unity (cough PCVR is dead cough). It will still work, though. You can just keep using the SteamVR plugin, regardless of engine version. All you need is the OpenVR rendering package: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/unity-xr-plugin/releases

    While I don't fully agree with the statement PCVR is dead, indeed try the latest package. It should work.
    If it doesn't, try to change the system to OpenXR.
