    Im getting the same issue, but apparently, Im trapped in oculus version 1.37.1, and cant receive the 1.38 update whatsoever.

    So dumb question but Im old and have only had this for about 3 hours...how do I acutally check to see what version I am running? I might not be able to check right this second as I am reinstalling all of it right now but I am curious if I was also at the 1.37.1 like you...

    Go to settings. Switch to general tab and scroll to bottom.
    ...and they are in stage where 1.38 is rolling out - it has not been distributed to all clients yet. Should get it inside few days.

    So will steamvr pop this up every time oculus has a new version? even when not everyone is able to grab it yet? basically periodically there will be times you wont be able to use steamvr for a couple of days due to this?

    Nope... I am running Oculus App Version 1.37.0.245188 and steamVR works fine. Even the new Rift S touch controllers show there now correctly. Perhaps your steam is not fully updated.

    You can manually update by following the instructions on this page: https://support.oculus.com/200468603765391/

    I've never had that appear.
    Valve did a Rift-S related update (1.5.8) to SteamVR yesterday (and another 2 updates today). So they may have decided to boost the supported version number to the latest. Usually they don't update that bleeding edge.

    Thanks all for the help. I ended up getting it working early early this morning. After I got it working with steam and shut down I ended up with my usb 3.0s not working when I started back up. took a bit but got that one figured out as well. Up and running well in all areas! This rift s is pretty awesome!

    I just fixed this on my rift after a system upgrade. Steam was installed on the C: drive, Oculus is on the F: drive. Due to default security permissions in windows steam cant read the information on the other drive for another program without a file path. Try this: Exit steam completely, launch oculus, them launch steam by right clicking it and running it as administrator. then try to launch steam VR. Note: this may work even if they are on the same hard drive depending on your configuration.
