Redout without Steam how to get game in my Rift / Unreal engine in general

I have a rift which works fine with apps I buy direct through the oculus store but I cannot get Redout (which supports VR and is built on unreal engine) to work at all.  I dont have steam on my machine.  When I load Redout then my rift comes alive but then displays an error briefly the win64.exe took too long to load before the game then shows in 2D on my monitor. 

Any help well received.

    Managed to get it to work by starting the SteamVR version without SteamVR installed.
    I do run it trough Steam so I have no idea what options you have for starting versions.
