[Solved]New Repair Won't Install "Oculus Setup requires KB2670838 and KB3033929" Even though I .....

So this new "OculusPatchMarch2018.exe" won't repair my oculus rift. When I go to repair it I get an error that says: "Update Required: Oculus Setup requires the KB2670838 and KB3033929 Windows 7 Hotfixes. Please install these updates and run Oculus Setup again.". I went to install these hotfixes but they are both already on my system. I read online about launching the program with Command Prompt using the function "C:/users/josh/desktop/OculusPatchMarch2018.exe /bypasshotfixcheck". When I type that in to command prompt the window that says "do you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer" pops up but then as soon as i click "Yes" the window immediately closes and the repair tool does not run. The first time that I installed the oculus setup over 10 months ago I had to use the "/bypasshotfixcheck" during the installation to get the program to work. Should I try and uninstall the Oculus program entirely from my computer and install a freshly downloaded version ? Will the newly downloaded setup automatically work without running the "oculuspatchmarch2018.exe" fix ?

RIght click on it and select create shortcut

on the created shortcut right click end select properties

You need to make sure the target matches the location of where the OculusSetup.exe is - could be c: but might be in a different location as well depending on where you put the .exe
