oculus software dash won't start and says my graphics driver is out of date

Level 2


I am using a rift S on an x570/3rd gen ryzen platform with an rtx 2070 super. I am on windows 10 pro v1909 and have windows updates irreversably disabled for music software stability reasons, and I do not receive any updates on any software except steam unless a problem occurs. There is no microsoft store or appx deployment service. I have many firewalls and scripts that disable networking on my computer, and I take my privacy against oculus and letting them freeload on advertising data very seriously.


I had not used the headset for about two months. I just bought a new vr game today, so I disabled all networking and launched oculus software. However, it gave a red notification saying there was a problem with my graphics driver for my rtx 2070 super. The only change that may have happened over those two months is when I downloaded the latest nvidia non-dch driver so I could fix my nvidia control panel functionality. I tried using the latest dch driver (466.11) purely to see if that would fix it, but it did not. I then tried reinstalling that same graphics driver as well as the non-dch driver using display driver uninstaller in safe mode. neither of these worked. even an older driver from december 2020 did not work. I then fully uninstalled oculus software including all the advertising data and regkeys it left behind via the normal uninstaller and revo uninstaller/cleanup utility. redownloading oculus software left me with the same problem.

I have no idea how to restore functionality to my headset. I am looking for any suggestions that will work within my computer's limitations.
