Disable auto-launching the Oculus Client
I keep my oculus Rift CV1 plugged into my PC all the time and its mounted on a 3D printed shelf next to my desk. Somehow, this configuration causes the oculus software to automatically launch whenever I turn my PC on, or just about do anything on my computer. This is rather annoying, as I'd prefer to keep my first plugged in as the cords are already out of the way.
At present, I've found a workaround by setting the client to only run as administrator - however it would be nice to have an option in the settings to disable the oculus service autostart - and only have it start when I open the application.
Hi Ben, if you are still having this issue, I found a solution. Just like you were saying you can set the application and all its services to run only when you start the application. Here's a Youtube video explaining how to do it. Hope this helps! It worked for me and now I can also store my headset on a 3D printed shelf and always have it plugged in! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QqK00vUO2o
