Can't establish connection between Unity and Ouest 2 in play mode

Level 2

I unfortunately can't get the Oculus Quest 2 to run in Unity's play mode.

My system info:

  • OS: Win10

  • CPU: i7

  • RAM: 16 GB

  • GPU: RTX 3060 Laptop (driver version 516.59)

  • Unity version: 2021.3.8.f1 (older versions do not work either)

  • XR Plugin Management: 4.2.1, Windows Settings: Init XR on Startup checked, Plug-in Providers Oculus checked

  • Quest 2 system version: 37314400808900000

  • USB debugging allowed

  • Oculus Link active (connected via USB 3.0 cable)

When I enter play mode the following warning appears: "Unable to start Oculus XR Plugin."

What I have tried so far:

  • Ouest 2 reset to factory settings

  • Reinstalled Oculus environment and drivers

  • Unity reinstalled

Unfortunately, all without success. But I would rule out a hardware problem, because with Unreal 4.27 a preview in the editor works fine. What do I miss?


Level 3

Same here with Unity 2021.1.28f3 and the latest Quest 2 version
