Can't install on Server 2016

CaspixCaspix Posts: 1

I tried to install the OR program on my windows server 2016 and it gives me the "We're having trouble starting Oculus" error. When I run the compatibility program it gives me a error for the OS. This is ok. But is there any trick I could try? Virtual desktop with win10 installed or anything? The computer that runs Server needs to be running server as this also host my Plex server and more and win 10 is imo not stable enough to be running 24/7... 

Thanks :D

    Well Oculus gives the requirements for the product.  If your talking about the Rift S the requirement is Windows 10.  If you don't have that then why would you think its going to work ?
    Oculus Rift S - Oculus Quest 128GB
    MSI trident 3 7RB-200UK Intel Core i5-7400 3 Ghz x2

    im trying right now and i keep running into problems the plan is to try and have 2 headsets on the one box i (so me and my brother or when a friend stops by i think id be fun ) couldn't get it to work in the server account (says my drivers are outdated )but im trying to use a VM with windows 10 and just copy it... the server has enough to do it i have a rtx 2070 in there right now and plan to add another gpu so each vm would have its own GPU 20gb ram and 6 cores it just seems like oculus is trying to hold me back lol
