Hey thomhunter! We'd love to help out! Please attempt the following steps to potentially get your Link capabilities to work properly:

  • Check for graphics driver updates
    • Here are some links to Nvidia and AMD driver update support pages!
  • Repair your Oculus PC software
    • Go to scroll down to Oculus Rift S and click Download software.
    • Select Repair.
      • If Windows asks you if you’re sure you want to open this file, click Yes.
      • If Windows Defender prompts Windows protected your PC, click More info and then click Run anyway.
      • If your antivirus software restricts the file from opening, temporarily disable your AV and continue.
      • Please remember to re-enable your antivirus software once you've completed the repair.
    • Allow the repair process to run, download and install.
    • Launch the Oculus PC app.
  • Check for Oculus driver updates
    1. Close the Oculus app.
    2. Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run command.
    3. Enter C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers.
