ERROR 1971017 - Library actions not allowed while in an app

Bought Edge of Nowhere, but it won't install because of this error. 

I've tried rebooting the PC, unplugging the oculus, nothing works.

    Normally means there is another app running that is using the headset. For example:
    Virtual Desktop will run in the background causing this error. Even if you reboot - it will auto startup with the PC. Check to make sure no 3rd party apps are using your rift at this time.

    update: rerun oculus-setup and choose repair. Worked for me
