Oculus Setup "Restart Computer, installation failed" issue, cant install.

Level 2

When I try to install Oculus Setup on my clean Windows 11 PC, it comes to the end of the installation but then says restart computer and says the installation failed. I tried alot of things like disabling firewall & antivirus, giving permission in regedit,unplugging everything, etc.

Nothing worked. I saw the setup logs and it says

"[Error] [05.10.2021 14:56:24] Process D:\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers\oculus-driver.exe exited with code -1 (failure)."


Support told me to email them and they are taking too long. Somebody help please.
