💡 This article outlines steps to "sideload" ArborXR onto VIVE Focus 3 and VIVE XR Elite devices using the Windows and MacOS Device Setup App. An alternative and potentially faster set up method is to scan a QR code generated from ArborXR. For more information about QR code enrollments, see this article.

  1. Download and install ArborXR's Device Setup App.

    • For steps on how to download and install the Device Setup App, see this article.

  2. Launch ArborXR's Device Setup App and login with your ArborXR account. Once logged in, select the organization which you’d like to add the device(s) to.

    ⚠️ If you’re provisioning via Configuration Package, do not log in. Please follow this guide on how to provision via Configuration Package.

  3. Connect your device to the PC via USB-C.

    💡 Use a USB hub to set up devices in bulk.

  4. Enter a Title for the device (optional).

  5. Select the checkbox for your device(s) then select the Set Up button.

  6. Choose a Setup Method

    1. Device Group - The device will be enrolled into an existing device group of your choice. Any settings configured to the group, including Wi-Fi, will be provisioned to the device via USB-C as part of the device setup. It is recommended to add Wi-Fi configuration(s) to the group ahead of device setup to automate the networking process. The group's apps and files will download and install to the device over Wi-Fi once the device comes online.

      💡 Device Groups are a way to provision a defined set of apps, files, and settings to multiple devices at once. For more detailed information, please visit our Device Groups collection of articles.

    2. Enroll Only - The device will be added to your ArborXR dashboard for management but no further actions will take place.

  7. Click on the Set Up button.

  8. Once the set up completes successfully, click the Manage Device button to be redirected to the ArborXR portal and to the device's overview page.

💡 An alternative to setting up VIVE Focus 3 devices with ArborXR is HTC's batch configuration, which ArborXR worked closely with HTC to enable. With batch configuration you can enroll devices into your ArborXR organization. For more information about using batch configuration to set up VIVE Focus 3 devices with ArborXR, see this article.
