download will not start

Level 2

Whenever I try to download games from the oculus app to my computer it will start but instantaneously stop. My oculus app is downloaded to my computer files in the program files folder and I am trying to download the games to a terabyte drive I installed. (They are different drives) I was wondering if there was any way I could fix this. I have tried restarting oculus, my computer, and i have even completely deleted oculus from my computer and reinstalled it. What do I do now?

  5. Click Add and navigate to the directory you want to add as a library

  6. Click the [...] Three Dots on the directory you want to be your default, and click Make Default Library

I have tried switching the default library multiple times, but it still would not download things.
