OculusSetup.exe instant crash on launch

Got my rift today and I'm trying to run the Oculus Setup file but nothing is working. My hardware meets/passes the minimum requirements pretty easily and my W10 install is up to date. I've tried moving OculusSetup.exe into my C:/ root folder and running as an admin but that didn't work either. Running with my antivirus and firewall turned on and off doesnt change anything either. The crash log reported no errors or issues beyond needing 120 gb, so I moved a lot of my files into other drives and made space in C Drive. Now the crash log shows no issues or errors at all and just ends at "All preflight checks passed."

I dont have any of my rift hardware plugged in at all, and I havent done any registry edits or hotfixes yet.


    I too have the same problem where I double click on the .exe file and nothing happens. I have also have more than 120GB free.

    I am keen to hear how this can be fixed.
