    is it this?
  • See one of the last lines on the log:
    [Debug] [09.04.2016 01:30:53] RunCheck 'Must not have the standalone Runtime installed.  If this fails, please uninstall 'Oculus Runtime' and reboot, then try again.' failed.

    You should uninstall the old runtime first. If you already did, my guess is that something did not get deleted. Perhaps you can try using procmon from microsoft to find the "missing" registry key or file.

    Figured it out

    1. install old run-time (https://developer.oculus.com/downloads/pc/0.8.0.0-beta/Oculus_Runtime_for_Windows/)

    2. uninstall old run-time

    3. restart computer

    4. install rift home

    I have to chime in here.  Cyber, you have been a great ambassador for Oculus over the years.. but as a CV1 user who is struggling to get this thing working I have to say that Oculus has really not done a stellar job on the software installation component of this unit.

    I'm a professional IT worker and I am finding this almost impossible to install ( I also had the DK1 which was a breeze compared to this).

    I'm really concerned that the average consumer will hit these roadblocks and just give up.   The reality is that it should be as easy as double clicking an "install" file and that's it.

    I was personally stuck in the "Install these hotfixes" (they were already installed) infinite loop until I formatted and re-installed windows (along with every other driver on my PC),

    So there is a trick to skip that part of the setup. Open the command prompt (and navigate to the folder where the setup file exists) and run this:
    OculusSetup.exe /bypassHotfixCheck
    However, if the hotfixes *are* missing you will have lots of problems after that point.
