    I often get that notification coming up. Does`nt seem to affect anything though. I`m sure Oculus know about this particular bug but dont seem to be inclined to sort it, as it`s been around since CV1. I have Rift S.

    Finally. 
    1.42 was unusable like that. Being a developer and having forced updates to versions that have such high impact issues is ♥♥♥

    I seem to be in a loop where it wants me to "update my drivers". 

    Anyone else have this issue?

    How big is the update?

    Long story short, we're moving but our Visas got denied so we're staying at home for a little but we have no wifi. I was going to try using my phone's hotspot, but we don't have unlimited data so I want to conserve it.

    Same problem as Martel, update drivers then oculus software reboot and ask the same thing ...update drivers...
    The firmware update never happed...contact oculus support.

    Have you both tried manually updating your Oculus Drivers?  From the Oculus Support pages;

    - Close the Oculus app
    - Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run command
    - Enter C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers
    - Open oculus-driver

    This has helped me the past.

    Yeah, great update. Broke my software completely and needs to be downloaded again. Gone from an update (forced btw) to a complete reinstall of 7.35GB. Pathetic.

    Does this start downloading when we put the headset on? Because i just tried streaming Arizona Sunshine to Twitch and as soon as i put the headset on my internet goes to sh*t. And i see in task manager that windows starts downloading something. Only when i put the headset on.

    The download of app updates can be stopped until you want them via settings.
    The Oculus updates cannot be stopped, they will be downloaded where and when Oculus decides. It does NOT require the headset to be worn.

    If you want to see if anything is being downloaded go to your Oculus Desktop App, click on "Library", "Updates". Anything downloading will show here.

    If you want more info about your PC's downloading and control over individual DL/UL speeds, use NetLimiter 4 (or similar). I've used it for years and love it.

    This update broke my software, I tried repairing it but it ended up forcing me to uninstall the oculus app, now when I try to use the OculusSetup.exe I can download the first part just fine but when I'm done installing it says to restart my computer because there was an error.

    Broke on my system as well. Tried to fix it, but at this point it's not worth the time. Since the update came out, I wasn't able to launch any of my games until I updated, but the update wouldn't work when I tried to launch it. I thought the next logical step was to try a repair on the Oculus so that it would update, but that ended up breaking it. Since it was broken, it left behind several partial files. I used revouninstaller to remove all those files, then attempted a fresh install, but now it won't install at all, it seems that there is an obvious issue for Ryzen systems, which is nothing new, I guess at this point I just have to wait for it to be patched, pretty shitty that the patch is mandatory though, like maybe test it a little more before releasing it unless your trying to compete with Microsoft updates and their ability to break things.

    Since this update, i do no longer hear anything out of the rift s speakers.
    I got a new driver and a firmware update.
    I see the rift S as an audio device in my windows settings, but there is no sound anymore

    Does anyone have the same problem or any hints what i could do?

    This update stalled at 1 of 9 and kept wanting me to restart the app, it appeared to be in some sort of loop. I decided to try and repair the oculus app in add/remove/modify programs. This downloaded the 7GB file but when it was installing it said there was an unexpected error and could not be installed. My system restarted and oculus icons were gone and it wasn't installed anymore. I found the oculus folder in program files oculus which had the setup file. You need to cut and paste the complete folder to another location such as downloads because you can't install the files in program files/oculus if the folder is there. Once you move the oculus folder to another location run the oculussetup as administrator. I turned of my antivirus and windows defender firewall just in case and turned off wifi, don't know if it mattered but I did it. The program reinstalled itself without any problem and was updated to the 1.43 oculus app. A few games in my library needed updated but once I clicked on the game icon and went to install it, the rest completed. I hope this helps.

    What really gets on my nerves is that my headset is plugged in all the time, but the Oculus app has asked me at least 100 times in a month to set up my Rift S. And just now it started launching on it's own without me even putting the headset on my head or even touching it. Weird.

    Rift CV1 - also in update loop 'New drivers are required for Oculus. Update Now'.
    Headset still works fine - sensor warning though.

    Maybe make sure you guys are completely shutting down after any updates (that is, no sleep or hibernate).  Otherwise these updates may not completely install.  Just a thought.

    Hi all - just dropping an FYI that we've updated the 1.43 release notes with the above bullet!

    So, I posted up above that I was stuck on the driver update loop from hell. I tried to "repair", which failed and uninstalled the software <there has GOT to be a better way of handling that>. 

    After that, the Oculus software wouldn't install at all. I tried all of the things you would think <antivirus, firewall, deleting existing directories and the like>, but it just would not install. When I looked at the logs, it always got hung up on the USB drivers. 

    Then I remembered from the olden days, you can always install the drivers when the device is unplugged, so I unplugged everything <headset and sensors> and then installed the software just fine. Plugged it all back in and it's working great again

    Hope this helps
