Sensor drivers not found, could you share them with me?

Hello, I'm installing my oculus for the first time through the windows app I found in https://www.oculus.com/setup/

The app says to connect the headset and sensors, the headset worked well, whilst the sensor wheel still rotating.
when I plugged the sensor's USB into the USB 3.0 port, a windows message appears, saying "sensors driver not found".  
I found a solution on a web page, which it says to search and install the  "OculusRiftSensorDriver.msi", located into C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\Oculus\ 

that's cool, but I cannot find the "Oculus" folder. Following that path I found only 3 folders named like this: "OculusSetup-02af8e70-2a18-48cd-85e5-210a48ea53a6", but no the "oculus" simple folder, the one where the drivers are supposed to be.

So, may I download directly that drivers file somewhere? Could you be so kind to share that  "OculusRiftSensorDriver.msi" with me?
Thank you!

    Can you try connecting the sensors to USB 2.0 ports instead.

    I did it. It does the same problem. Windows feels that something was plugged (I hear the "plug" sound) but a windows message says that the sensor driver is not found. Is it possible to download the .msi file separately and install it?

    You should be able to find the drivers with the inf file in this folder: C:\Program Files\Oculus VR Runtime Drivers\Drivers\Rift Sensor

    Go to C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers, and you'll find the oculus-driver.exe
    Execute it and problem solved!

    Could somebody tell me what the root cause is? the rift sensor driver is not installed by Oculus Setup, need to go to C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers, then double-click "oculus-driver.exe".
