Error R:505 means that there seems there is a problem with SteamVR®. Please close SteamVR® and restart 3D mode. If the problem persists, please uninstall SteamVR®, restart your Shadow, and reinstall SteamVR®.


If that does not help, please contact our Support Team for further assistance from your account page. 


so steam had blocked shadow vr because it crashed, unblocking it helped
