VRChat always start in desktop (oculus app / rift s)

so for some reason VRChat only start in desktop mod VRChat works but no vr. in the headset you see the loading screen I tried:
-uninstall and reinstall VRChat  (manually and the uninstall in the Oculus app)
-uninstall and reinstall the Oculus app (manually / uninstaller and control panel)
-tried to uninstall all VRChat and Oculus temporary file 
-full virus verification and suppression (non virus was fonde)
-tried my oculus rift s on my brother pc non problem VRChat start in vr
-tried in safe mode but the oculus app can't connect to the server (yes I used safe mode with internet)

to clarify I played VRChat before it started. I do have a low performance pc but I'm 99% sure it not part of the problem but I unfortunately I can't play it on steam, Oculus / SteamVR and VRChat 100% my cpu and lag the tracking. if you now the problem or a work around it would really help.

so good news. for me the new VRChat and Oculus update fixed the bug so if you had the same bug it's probably fixed for you as well, if the bug is still happening I can't help. thank you to everyone for the help and I hope the bug is fixed for everyone.

Hello, i have the exact same problem on my Rift S. My VRChat doesn't want to start in VRmode no matter what i do on Oculus. I have no problems with other games from the Oculus Store except VRChat.
It always starts in desktop mode for some reason.
Did you find any fixes or had any answer from support ?

Oculus support didn't find a problem in the oculus app and I'm still waiting on VRChat support team (ticket started the 16 march)
