Tried repair, tried to clear system cache and temp files, tried uninstall/reinstall, tried to use the 2018 patch, nothing seems to be working.
EDIT: After reading through the logs in C:\Users\(my username)\AppData\Local\Oculus it looks like the following error is in the log:

[Warning] [2021-10-17 12:22:05 PM] Exception starting service 'OVRService'. : The specified service does not exist as an installed service
However I can see that the "runtime" service is running in local processes, but attempting to start the "library" service throws an error code 18...
EDIT 2: While waiting for a PM back from the Oculus team, I did some more debug checking (rolled back Nvidia drivers from 510.10 to 496.13, checked the registry paths, tried to set the OVRLibraryService.exe to start automatically and as "local system" which didn't work...so back to a fresh Oculus install) and found this in the logs. Which of course still seem to show that the Runtime service is able to run properly, but the Library service is still having an issue running under the default "NT Service\OVRLibraryService" user settings.

Hey there, thanks for reaching out. We see that you are having issues with running Oculus Link on Windows 11. We're sure you'd like the situation to be resolved so you can see what new features Windows 11 has to offer but currently Oculus has not released the updates and drivers that support Windows 11 fully. Until the updates are released, you may continue to experience issues while using Oculus Link on Windows 11. We recommend rolling back your Windows update to one supported by Oculus or waiting until the update is officially released.
It's not just that - it's a matter of the fact that we cant install the client - at all - And, for all the people that say launch Virtual Desktop and launch Vive VR that way? Yeah, it doesnt even detect an Oculus is installed, because well, the software isn't. The closest I have come is showing it as a USB device in Device Manager. Anyone else got at least Steam Working with it under Windows 11 / NVIDIA ?
Hey there, thanks for clearing that up. Have you found that the issue is only happening on Windows 11 or has the issue been ongoing since before you updated to Windows 11? This will help us determine if the issue is software related or potentially hardware related.
We also recommend sending us a PM, you can do so by clicking here https://ocul.us/OculusCommunitySupport or on our name to get to our profile page, then click "Send a Message" to privately contact us. Please remember, you must be signed into the community first to send us a private message.
We'd like to get the bottom of this problem so you can finally enjoy the Virtual World again!
