Windows 11 compatibility
Currently, oculus link on windows 11 will either not work, run by lag after half a minute of gameplay no matter what's going on, or if your really lucky it might just work normally. I know that the current windows 11 build is an insider one, but a lot of people are using it and would like to be able to play vr games on it. The whole point of the program is to find bugs so that they can be fixed before the official release, and this is one of those bugs.

I have windows 11 dev channel,and I can't install oculus app setup, but disabling game mode on windows 11, insrallation functions,but then don't starts... Oculus may priorize windows 11 suport before new oculus 3, or people that has been recently bought oculus 2 will fill all internet with bad coments...

I use oculus link with Win 11 and it works for me when I open an app in SteamVR, yet the oculus home interface (library and apps with icon dashboard) itself is very shuddery. It's nearly impossible to select most of the icons, especially the one to view one's own computer (which is the point of the interface). I'm really rather irritated and disappointment since no where did I see anything about Win 11 conflicts when I purchased the expensive wire cable.

never had this issue myself and been on W11 pretty soon.
I now that b282 fixed some performance issues but it always worked before as well ( wired and wireless )
I prefer virtual desktop though, works great out of the box

As stated in a now 8 page long forum thread in the Oculus Quest forum (and here), people experiencing stutter in apps or games on Windows 11, that used to run perfectly fine on Windows 10, are fixing this by enabling the console in the Debug Tool. Very odd trick but it also worked for me. This solution was found 2 months ago and it's still required today. My system: RTX3090, Quest 2 over USB Link, Intel i7-11700K, all Windows 11 updates installed and build 22000.282.

I’ve also experienced stutters since upgrading to Windows 11

FOUND A FIX!!!! Open oculus debug tool, click on service, then toggle console window visibility, close debug tool and DO NOT minimize the new window. This window being open and not minimized fixes everything.

I am disappointed that the only thing that I have not been able to get working properly in Windows 11 is the Oculus Link and Air Link. Every other piece of software and hardware has transitioned across perfectly, without any intervention. I have the release version of the OS installed and I can get the wired link and Air Link to start BUT then I just get a black screen. So frustrating! I hope a software/firmware fix becomes available soon as I really miss flying MSFS202 in VR.

Same problem here. It worked with the first release, but after few updates, the quest is no more detected by the Oculus software :/

Totally agree, had the same issue as everyone with Windows 11... It just stutters, lag and so on... needed to rollback to W10 to use it. It would be nice to have an update fixing this when official Windows 11 wents out
