I've installed the last patch and an the following error is showed:

"Restart computer

Sorry we encountered an error during instalation. Please restart your computer and try running Oculus Setup again. If you still experience issues, contact Oculus Support"

I've restart my computer several times and relaunch the patch and nothing happens but the same error.

Someone can help me?

Thanks in advice.

    You can also try to download the setup installer again and doing a full install from there.
    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X | MSI X370 Titanium | G.Skill 16GB DDR4 3200 | EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 | Corsair Hydro H110i
    Gigabyte RX Vega 64 x2 | Samsung 960 Evo M.2 500GB | Seagate FireCuda SSHD 2TB | Phanteks ENTHOO EVOLV

    You can try

    Step 1 :
    Turning off as many services as possible in Windows Task Manager such as:
    Any GPU tweaking utils such as MSI afterburner
    Any motherboard utilities such as AI suite
    Any encryption utilities 
    Any SSD Utilities like Samsun Magic
    Antivirus, Antimalware
    Java updater if you have one
    Any CPU Utilities
    Any RGB peripheral utilities
    basically cutting it down to the most essential services needed by Windows.

    Step 2:
    Then, try using Repair (I used the Repair option from the full installer, not the one in the patch program). This was the only way I got it to work (finally) just now.
