Fix issues related to running Oculus Home behind a proxy and/or make the runtime work in offline mode.
This feedback ticket is targeted for the use case of using the Oculus Rift in a business environment, but the requested feature can also benefit consumers.
Business customers can’t install the software in common network environments. Most businesses use a proxy to communicate with the internet. The Oculus installer does not respect the proxy settings of the system, causing an "e.ishttperrorcode is not a function" error when trying to create a user account or logging in with an existing one. This is not the only bug when trying to install the Oculus software from within a restricted network environment, but a major one.
Since the Oculus products and services are marketed as “Oculus for Business” one would expect the installation process to function even in a fairly restricted network environment, since that is what a majority of businesses are working with.
Either those bugs need to be solved, or Oculus needs to provide an offline installer. Ideally, it should be possible to use the Rift runtime without creating an Oculus account at all.
Agreed here, domain connected developer machines cant use Oculus. Support recommended offline install by getting download cache from another non-domain machine.
That works and a script from github allowed backup and install.
BUT the ssl issue caused by Oculus ignoring windows ssl stores/proxy means you still cant run the Oculus client since you need to use Facebook OAuth to even open the thing to connect a headset.

Hi, same problem in my company.
Security team change proxy restriction but it's still fail.
Last error message is :
[OAF ERROR] software\oculussdk\pc\oaf\liboaf\network\simplehttprequest.cpp(187) : Request AccessTokenVerification errored: TransientError domain: CURLcode code: 7 detail: 7: Failed to connect to graph.oculus.com port 443: Timed out (1971012) OVR40779122
I hope Oculus business will allow this features
- offline installer
- Kiosk for private application
- Mobile and System Device Mangement
- system to stream content of a device in other screen
Definitely a major bug in a business environment.
