New install, software doesn't start

I just recieved my Rift today and went through the software install process, but the software doesn't want to work.

I am stuck at the start up splash screen with the Oculus logo and small spinning circle.  I've restarted my computer (a couple of times), re-installed the software, and also tried installing the patch (well, I ran the repair function from the patch installer).

I did tell the installer to put the apps on a different drive from my system drive, but that shouldn't be all it takes to break the software.

    Solved the problem by disabling anti-virus and firewall.

    Those instructions should really be somewhere more visible.  When the support site directed me to the forums, it didn't even send me to the support forum.

    Nearly all the forum is a support forum, we are made up of users like yourself and would help in anyway we can. It should be clearer about anti-virus but some allow and others don't. Glad you are sorted and I am looking forward to your impressions ;)
