OculusSetup fails

Guys, I've been going back and forth with tech support for a week now and they've stopped responding to me since Sunday.

Basically when I run the OculusSetup.exe it fails and roll's back. In the Oculus Setup.log file the offending line is:

[Error] [9/7/2017 11:12:23 AM] Error getting files from manifest for oculus-runtime: Unable to read manifest 'H:\Oculus\Manifests\oculus-runtime.json'.

I've tried installing on C:\, G:\ and now H:\ a freshly formated drive using OculusSetup.exe /drive=H. During installation it downloads all required files, and starts to populate the manifests folder. I see the oculus-runtime.json and mini.json files being generated. Before it failed I copied those files out to a different folder and perfomed a JSON validation on them which passed just fine. I've looked through windows system logs and did not see anything relevant.

The OVRLibraryService.log ends with success on the previous installation package as shown below

Then nothing else.

Any thoughts? I haven't seen anybody with this problem yet.

Thanks in advance!

    Wow, FINALLY. Got it figured out.

    I had to completely remove windows firewall service. I couldn't just stop it. I had to disable it in windows service manager. Restart the computer and then install.

    Nothing like downloading the 2 GIG install package probably 30 times in the last week. I hope this helps somebody in the future.

    Thank you very much. I'd put an exclamation mark at the end of that sentence but I'm too exhausted from going to war with Windows over this. I did disable the Malwarebytes service as well so I can't be 100% positive that the firewall caused it. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction regardless. Cool. I get to push 'Next' now... Next battle... Fight!
