Hello there,

I just installed the Oculus software and when I open the Oculus Client, I can see a loading screen and it's stuck for some reason. The window looks like this. 

I don't know what to do, I search everywhere and my problem seems not to be that common.
Please help!

    Setting it up for the first time right now and iam stuck at this screen for about 40 minutes now.
    Is this a known problem?

    Same problem here, doesn't help that tech support hasn't answered my ticket yet.

    Has the community come up with a fix for this?
    I've reinstalled and restarted my app / PC, disabled my antivirus, swapped the installation folders, made sure I had 80+ GB free space, plugged/unplugged the rift headset and sensors in the USB ports and installed the 'repair patch'.
    No changes so far...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I had this problem and multiple others when getting setup. I'd suggest going into the appdata folder and looking at the logs, they were pretty helpful to me:

    Windows key + R, and then "%localappdata%\oculus"

    or (assuming windows is installed on your c drive)

    By default the appdata folder is hidden so you may not be able to just browse to it via explorer.

    In there look for any errors or warnings in the most recent log files. As annoying as my setup process was, once i found this folder I was able to figure out what the issue was at each step.

    Hi maikhorma,
    thanks for your response. I checked the directory you are talking about. I found four Log files:


    I could saw different warnings and errors. But one of the first warning was that it can not write in "C:\Program Files\Oculus....". So i deleted everything again and I searched for all remaning files from the oculus software to delet those as well. I also unplugged all USB devices I dont needed. Then I reinstalled the Oculus software with a different path "C:\Oculus\..." (to choose the path is only possible for the Oculus Apps). 

    After that was done it worked :)

    So I thing it was an error with the path and maybe an issue with another USB device.

    Thanks a lot.
