I'm not sure what is happening here. Oculus has been working fine for me for years with little problem. I'm not sure if it is the issue, but I had a windows 7 update the day before, But I did role it back and it didn't fix it.
I first tried to start my app, and it would not. I tried to repair it, but every time it tells me I'm missing KB2670838 and KB3033929, which I am not. Obviously, I needed these when I first bought the rift. Then to find out, there is a bug that still hasn't been patched, that trips despite you having these files, oof.
Anyway, I just decided to delete everything and reinstall oculus. It still tells me the files are needed. So I used the bypass check. It bypasses the check. But still won't work. This time it installs exactly 2.02 gigs of the needed files, then goes to installation process where is fails within 15 seconds. Every time.
Yes, my firewall is disabled, as well as the virus protection.
here is the log.
