Oculus app won't start

No matter what i do sometimes the oculus app will not start up instead i get a error that says "We're Having Trouble Starting Oculus" "Your Oculus software may be updating. Please wait a minute and try again. If the issue continues, contact Oculus Support." This happens randomly and it will some times allow me to use the app after a restart or sometimes it won't work at all. This is also occuring after i reinstalled it. The process is way to long for me to reinstall so i want a way around it for the future.

    Even if this is the problem i can't just quickly go start it up, nothing even happens when i start OVRServer.exe. This didn't really help me solve my issue. Like i said i don't want a long way around this like restarting or something else, I just want to double click the oculus app and have it open. It should do this to begin with though but it doesn't.

    Could be an anti-virus conflict. Can you try temporarily disabling anti-virus to test? Also, if you use Bullguard it needs to be completely uninstalled.

    I just found the solution, all I had to do was enter the oculus setup and Click repair.
