Every time when i try and install right after its doing the unpacking it gets to 842 and then fails, "please restart your computer and try again"
So after much searching and not finding anything good.
this is my fix to the problem.
I had the program installed earlier but then uninstalled to try an earlier runtime version.
but as i was installing it i got error everytime.
and for me it was failing in installing the visual ccp 2015, dont know why and dont care.
look in my program and features (windows 10) could see that microsoft visual c++ 2015 redistributable was there (2 of them one x86 and x64)
so i manually uninstalled them and then started oculus install again.
Success, no i can complete the install.
My error logs:
