Hi there! Oculus Link sure is great for experiencing those high-end VR experiences so let's see what we can do to get you into some PCVR.


Make sure your PC meets minimum requirements by checking here 👉🏻, and then looking for "Oculus Link Compatibility", and that your device is running Windows 10.


After making sure we're compatible follow the same link above 👆🏻‍ and look for "Use Oculus Link with Meta Quest 2 or Meta Quest" on how to connect to Link with no issues. You'll notice that when initiating Oculus Link you need to select "Deny" when asked to "Allow Access to Data". On this page, you'll also catch some resources to help with Oculus Air Link.


Let us know if you need additional help and we'll be happy to provide further guidance!
