can anyone that knows about oculus rift help me, cant get it to run. i have googled everything and hit up oculus with no progress. And yes i have a powerful computer, yes i ticked the "Unknown sources" and even uninstalled and reinstalled everything from the oculus app, steamvr, and steam it self. Im more than sure its not steam or steamvr for sure. Its def the oculus app, i cant download games, or finish the rift set up. when i get to the "adjust your lenses and pu on headset" i only see a little loading thing on the bottom right for two seconds, and everything stays black. It stops me from finishing set up. i skip that step and the oculus oculus can still go into oculus home. i close oculus home and try to go into steam vr and get "(error: shared ipc compositor invalid connect response (307))". Steam vr on the bottom right says compositor is not available. has a Launch compositor link but dosnt do anything. it shows that my headset is connected but wont recognize sensors or touch controls. i hit run room setup, but says headset is off. PLEASE help?

    I would send support a mail if I were you - they can check the diagnostics and maybe see what's going on

    He's got today's date showing in the system tray on his next screenshot, so maybe the Region Formatting just uses the Rift release date for the example, rather than the actual date?

    It's just a sample to show the region formatting options. I've got the same numbers.

    Don't try to use third party software like Steam when you are even not able to download Oculus native applications. When that will be fixed probably Steam will work too.

    The fact Oculus application can't finish installation can mean (like I experimented once during few days which drive me nuts) a problem with your firewall or Antivirus preventing the communication port rules creation. If you have an Antivirus you can try to disable it temporarily, and check firewall settings.

    I have disabled my antivirus/firewall and i dont have anything that prevents any downloads. I will get home later and upload logs.

    I know this is silly, but do you have enough hard drive space free?

    From your numerous postings it seems you haven't even finished installed the Rift completely...so why are you messing with Steam? What locations have you specified for your app locations and for Oculus..and yes is there enough space on those drives? I have a feeling something extremely trivial is the reason for your problems.

    and I have never bothered with STEAM to "establish tracking". This is the Rift, not a Vive. You also don't need "to close Oculus" to use Steam.

    I guess i meant to say i closed oculus home, not the app.

    every one stop commenting lol i still cant use oculus home app. or download anything from the oculus store.

    It looks like you have the video cables connected incorrectly. Rift and all monitors must be connected to the primary dedicated GPU (from Nvidia or AMD). Motherboard integrated video ports are not supported, nor are secondary cards in SLI/Crossfire configurations.

    Yep, SteamVR runs on top of the Oculus SDK, it's not an alternative but effectively just another Oculus app (when used in that way). So if oculus software is having trouble, then SteamVR is likely to fail too.

    --->

    You are running multiple GPUs (your internal Intel graphics) and your GTX TI 1050. You must have connected BOTH, the Rift and your monitor to the GTX1050. And nothing connected to the internal Intel graphics. [It's also possible you need to go into your PC BIOS and disable the Intel Graphics, but it's likely that's not needed if this is set to "AUTO" which it should be.]

    This is clear looking at your Steam Error message and the fact that your logs show an Intel Integrated Graphics. So unplug everything from your Intel Graphics.

    Edit: Ahhhh..cybereality beat me to it further above.
