0 Success
50001 Invalid account ID/VIVEPORT ID/VIVEPORT key
50004 Cannot connect server
80002 GetLicense failed because user does not login VIVEPORT


For WAVE developers, you’ll need to modify the AndroidManifest.xml to have the permission of com.viveport.CHECK_LICENSE , details .

Best Practice


  • Get a VIVEPORT ID and VIVEPORT Key from the VIVEPORT Developer Console , and then paste them to your content. Please refer to here .
  • Use Top Level API - Viveport.Api.Init to initialize VIVEPORT platform. For Unity developer, it is usually used in MonoBehaviour “Start()”.
  • Use DRM API - Viveport.Api.GetLicense to verify whether current user is allowed to launch the content. It is usually used to check the user’s authentication. Show an error message and close the content if you receive the error code from the API.
  • Use Top Level API - Viveport.Api.Shutdown to shutdown and release VIVEPORT SDK resources. For an Unity developer, it is usually used in MonoBehaviour “OnDestroy()” or before Application.Quit().

Before testing

  • Go to VIVEPORT website and download VIVEPORT desktop application.

  • Install the downloaded file ViveportSetup.exe and follow the step by step instructions to complete the setup process.

  • On the PC desktop, a VIVEPORT icon will appear. Double click to launch it and sign in as your developer account.

  • Sign in by using a developer account. A developer account is allowed to launch content by default. So, the content can be launched successfully.

  • Sign in by using an another user account, then launch a content. Because the content is not owned by the user, it will go the the fail case of Viveport.Api.GetLicense and go through the error handling flow.
