Offline Installer

Adding in my vote for an offline installer.   I work in a SCIF and there is NO option for an online driver installer. We own 4 DK1's, 4 DK2's, 4 CV1's (Which we are struggling to use) with a potential to buy thousands for our agency.

    Here is what we did:
    1. Open Windows Explorer (This Computer, My Computer, etc)
    2. Start the installation on any PC.
    3. Find "OculusSetup-DownloadCache" Folder in C:\
    4. Double click the folder
    5. Take ownership/Permissions
    6. Open Task Manager and highlight OculusSetup.exe
    7. Let the installer download the files to the computer
    8. As soon as the computer says "Installing...," END TASK for OculusSetup.exe in Task Manager
    9. Copy the OculusSetup-DownloadCache folder to a flash drive
    10. Copy the OculusSetup.exe file (the installer stub) to same flash drive
    11. Copy the OculusSetup.exe stub and the DownloadCache folder to new computer, making sure you copy the DownloadCache folder to the root of C:\
    12. Run the OculusSetup.exe
    13. It will go into a "Not Responding" state temporarily. Just wait a few moments.
    14. It will "download" the files from the DownloadCache folder and install without the Internet!

    You don't get "OculusSetup-DownloadCache" unless you're online and the setup program is working (even being online doesn't guarantee this).

    It appears to be working. Many thanks !

    Any chance you could Zip them up, I cannot download it, keeps timing out and the stupid installer has no "resume", getting a brilliant first impression of Oculus and VR :(

    You don't really expect Facebook owned Oculus to let you use the device offline? Even if you manage a workaround, get prepared to get hit by a rock any later version.

    I'll be trying this shortly. Not having an offline installer smacks of arrogance and stupidity in equal measure. Just like making you jump through hoops to install on a different drive :-)
