Rift CV1 - Software stopped opening, can't repair, only install, which doesn't work!

So out of nowhere, my Oculus software started pinging an error message saying "We're having trouble starting Oculus". I've had this a few times now, and it's incredibly annoying, but usually I can just run the setup program, hit repair, and once it's done it works fine.

Today the repair just closed by itself, and when I run the setup again, there is no repair - it's just a fresh install option. I've tried that, and now I get "Restart Computer - Sorry, we encountered an error during installation. Please restart your computer and try running Oculus Setup again. If you still experience issues, contact Oculus Support". I restart, nothing. I tried to just completely uninstall Oculus but it doesn't even show up in my Add/Remove Programs list on Windows 10 any more.

Anyone able to shed any light on this? I'm getting Beat Saber withdrawal symptoms!

    I solved it myself - I was installing on a secondary drive since I had basically none on my primary, but still needed some free space on my primary. Once I freed some up, a few gig or so, it worked fine installing to my secondary. Probably super simple in hindsight!
