IPC Connection Attempt Failed!

hey guys!

About 3-4 days ago, my Oculus app has been acting VERY weird. This is the error I get:

 

TheZombieSurvivalist_0-1634679700942.png

TheZombieSurvivalist_1-1634679720486.png

Sometimes, if I reboot my PC 20 times, I can get it to work.

 

Ive tried: Uninstalling it, and manually deleting all oculus folders

Disabling windows firewall AND Defender, running memtest for 4 hours to see if my ram was bad (no errors).

 

In my Fixer.Log, this is the contents of it:

Hi there. For this error, please ensure that you are connecting to a strong, stable WIFI network and not a hotspot or captive portal. You may also need to temporarily disable any real-time scanning features that may be running.

You may also need to try resetting your modem or router, if you have access to do so.

In addition, please check that the Oculus service is running correctly in the Microsoft Services Console:

  1. Open the Microsoft Services Console (Start > Search > services.msc)

  2. Verify the Oculus VR Runtime Service status is Running (If the service is not Running: Right click “Oculus VR Runtime Service then select “Start.”)

  3. Verify the Oculus VR Runtime Service Startup type is Automatic (no delayed start)

  4. If the service startup type is not showing Automatic: Right click “Oculus VR Runtime Service,” Select “Properties,” change Startup Type to “Automatic”

To help us look into this further for you, please reach out to our support team here. Thanks!

I'm on a very high-speed ethernet network, and I've even tried different wifi access points with no luck. I've also already tried the fixes you just listed with no luck as well.

That can definitely be frustrating! So that we can look further into this, please reach out to our support team and submit a ticket here. We are here to help!

hello are you using windows 11

Yes, I am 

Please check whether you have a new Windows 11 update then it will work again

I've already tried, it was one of the first things I tried to do.

I had the same problem until today the update was released and since then it works for me
