Can someone please explain to me how to use steamVR with Rift S? Because i can't figure it out. I launched SteamVr, it opened oculus app and it completely reset my setup process so i had to go trough it again. Then Rift wouldn't detect my controllers any more and i had to restart PC to fix this. Then i launched steamVR again, it opened oculus home app and in the headset i just got a message that Rift cant run unknown app. Like it has no idea what this steamVR thingy is. So how the Hell do i do that. idk who is trolling who. Facebook trolling Valve or the other way a.round. Or both trolling us. HELP!

    In the Oculus desktop app, there’s a setting you have to turn on, called “allow unknown apps.”

    ya. i figured it out. SteamVr is an unknow up, huh? INow that Valve has their own headset and Facebook has their own store, not much love between them

    Anything not available on the oculus store is considered an unknown app, i wouldnt think too deep into it :)
