  1. [Bug] First start of Oculus software with an additional Windows user ends in error "ovr88948175".

    Because the Virtual Desktop doesn't work as Windows standard user I created a power user. The first Oculus Software start logged in as this additional user ended up in an error "ovr88948175". After a time eating investigation I found the solution. This registry key was missing:

    [HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Oculus VR, LLC\Oculus\Libraries]

  3. Fix the issue with automatic app removal of apps on external disk

    If the Oculus app is launched, without the external drive connected, the apps on the external disk will no longer be usable, and the user have to download them again.

    This bug is particularly annoying because the oculus app starts automatically when any app uses the SDK.

    I know that it is not recommended to use external drive, but using a laptop and the apps are several hundred gigs, I don't really have a choice.

    There is no other app that I know of that has this behaviour, of course you cannot run the apps when the drive is not…

  4. Auto Error reporting after a crash from the desktop app

    I went thru 2 days of hair pulling after the desktop app updated and then started crashing and reloading.

    I tried updating the graphics card, total re-install. (which takes forever). Looked in the log files, didn't get any useful info out of it.

    After almost giving up. I looked to see what was the latest version of windows which was 1908. I was just a few rev's behind. This is what fixed my problem.

    But you at least need to put up a pop up box, that states "WHY" the app is auto-closing. And give a few suggested things to…

  5. Please make Firmware updates available for download on your website

    it would be super awesome if you guys would have oculus firmware downloads as optional links/things on your website. readily availble for people who the store/app doesnt work well for. ive had a lot of problems with your desktop app and this is the most major one. as well as a way to manually download them outside of oculus detecting it.

  6. Uninstalling removes the other folders that is stored ProgramData and AppData, and removes all of the registry keys

    When the program gets uninstalled, it should remove the Oculus folders and OpenVR from AppData and in ProgramData.

    When I uninstall the program, and try to reinstall, the install gets corrupted and I have to reboot and after rebooting, still doesn't work.

  8. Allow different language to be the official workaround when installation gets stuck.

    I've tried to install the desktop app many times, however I found that downloading in espagnol/spanish in most cases fixes the installations fails.
    Some people it's french and others Dutch.

    The point is, the desktop app installation process is clearly problematic having so many people asking for help and downloading over 4 times the files.

    Out of 7 installation made on both French and English windows 10 64b (clean and "used", it has worked only one time with the french installation on an english one,never with english. The rest ,spanish were the way to go.

    On top of that at…

  9. Fix FOV multiplier in Oculusmirror

    --FovTanAngleMultiplier setting on Oculus Mirror(.exe) makes the graphic in the Mirror screen barreled (like the actual lens view), even if 1.1 multiplier is used while the Dash is showing as it should. Please fix for the streaming purposes! (Version 1.40, I5-8600K, 32 gb, 2080 etc etc.)

  10. Help with unblocking your PIN

    When you type your PIN in to fast to many times it blocks you. Instead of saying go visit the help center for support and not having jacksh*t on there. Maybe actually giving the person help or a number to call instead of them having to wait A WHOLE DAY to receive an email back. How bout that.

  11. Click on An App's Version Number to see the most recent Patch Notes

    Some other people here have had similar ideas, but on the store page there is a clearly visible Version Number, but no way to access the Patch Notes from the store pages, unlike other app stores like iOS or Android. A simple solution would be to have a link to the Patch Notes attached to the Version Number on each App page, so when a user wants to see the Notes they just have to click on the Version number.

  12. Invasive Occulus Update: refocuses current window.

    Stop automatic refocus of oculus software on update check.

    this has happened a lot lately and im just before the point of uninstalling the oculus software completely.

    While playing other games such MC that are in no way related to oculus The oculus software will periodically check for updates this check is bringing me out of my other games that I am current playing and makes itself the main focused window. this is extremely aggerating and a little invasive and really starting to cause problems.

  13. Oculus Medium

    The whole power of Oculus Medium, in order to teach others or beginners,
    was the ability to follow along with tutorials IN the medium program, It
    is too hard to teach a new person by watching a video outside the medium
    program, then have to jump in medium and remember the whole
    demonstration. In the program you could pause as you went through all
    the tools. Bring this feature back PLEASE.

  14. Combine the UI concept from HelloV.io (tiny discreet dot with focal point interactivity) to Oculus Desktop App.

    Summary: Combine the UI concept from HelloV.io (tiny discreet dot with focal point interactivity) to Oculus Desktop App.

    I've found the biggest hurdle for streaming VR content on Twitch (or Mixer) is the ability to read chat in a way that doesn't interfere with the game experience.

    The problem with OVRdrop for me: Hard to read the chat, hard to orient the chat box, incredibly annoying user interface. Setting it up so that chat is viewable when I flip my wrist is popular, but I've found a few games that utilize this action in their ui.

    HelloV.io is promising. I…

  15. Add more email domains to registration process

    I had to change which email address I used to create an Oculus account because the confirmation emails weren't being sent to my sbcglobal.net email address. Once I tried a Gmail account I received the email instantly.

  17. Fix please

    Currently there is a tracking issue if you move your controller too fast.
    Oculus players no have a big disadvantage playing games like Beat Saber.
    It's very important to me and many many more people that this gets fixed as quick as possible.
