    Hello @johnnykun, I'm sorry to hear you're having issues using the Oculus Debug Tool. You may get the error unable to connect to the service if the Oculus VR Runtime isn't running. Please check to see it is running. You can open the Microsoft Services Console (Start > Search > services.msc) to check the status. If it isn't running, right click on it and select Start. The Start Type should be Automatic, you can check it in the Properties. Thanks! -Rick
