There’s a known issue where the Oculus installer (OculusSetup.exe) may not successfully complete due to a Windows registry issue, and instead asks you to reboot your computer. You can identify whether this is the issue you’re having by opening %LOCALAPPDATA%\Oculus\OculusSetup.log and looking for the error message “This access control list is not in canonical form and therefore cannot be modified.”
We have a potential fix for this issue in the upcoming release, but in the meantime, the following unofficial workaround may work for you. Warning: this workaround requires that you edit your Windows registry!
1) Run regedit.exe
2) In the left tree view, right-click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, select "Permissions..."
3) If a dialog comes up stating that the permissions are incorrectly ordered, click "Reorder"
4) Click "OK" in the permissions dialog to close it
5) Repeat step 2-4 on any of the following tree nodes that exist:
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Oculus VR, LLC
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Oculus VR, LLC/Oculus
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Oculus VR, LLC/Oculus/Config
