Black screen in the *Oculus App*

So I just got my new Rift S and installed the Oculus App on my PC. After it finished downloading, when I clicked next I got a black screen. No not the rift s, the software itself since I couldn't set up my device. I tried reinstalling it 5 times, 1 with antivirus off and 1 in a different drive and nothing has seemed to work. I have already contacted support but am willing to get answers from the community. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Screenshot of the black screen in the Oculus App:
I have more screenshots if needed. Thank you for your time, I hope this gets fixed for everyone.

I checked the log files and found this error message:

"Server closed connection

The other log file said this:

    Sounds like the updates or installs or just trying out all the different USB slots all gets messed up eventually. I know things get broken and that's a sign of a previous install of something is already running so can't be started just like Virtual Desktop has 2 Parts to it: The Program and the Service. If it goes wrong via Win Permissions and you end up trying to remove/install it then it doesn't uninstall all parts and assumes the Service is still installed to work but doesn't.
