    Not sure if you've found it yet but this reddit thread sure helped me louiz.

    A bit of a pain as it has to be done every time you update to a new build and there are some issues if you are running a kinect, but you should be able to get it working fine with a little trial and error. Also if you are running Nvidia you will have to downgrade your drivers to 350.12 so no DK12 for now.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, the aforementioned method only works if you have an upgraded install vs a clean one. So if you are the latter, you are out of luck.
    Hopefully Oculus will have something available soon now that 10 has RTM'd.

    Another Edit: Follow these instructions to get it happening on AMD as things are a little different.

    and THIS is why I have not yet upgraded :) I knew Oculus would be borked. I have 1 year to get the upgrade for free and in no rush to upgrade now to 10 from 7. I will but I want Oculus to be out in consumer level AND nVidia drivers to have time to get more "mainstream" with the OS.
