Any got the error "Library actions not allowed while in an app (1971017)"? I'm trying to install Lucky Tales, but after download I get this error.

    OK, probably some application was running or not closed right. I restarted Oculus Store couple of times, and is working now.

    you get this error also if you have virtual desktop running.
    close it from task-manager and then it will install.

    keeps happening to me - even after several quit and openings of Oculus - nothing else in my task manager. Buggy!

    Solved it by playing another game - telling it to force quite the active game - which bugged out - but eventually let me do stuff without the error message. I think it had to do with running 'FlyInside P3d' for running flight sims inside Oculus. Untested territory - but pretty cool!

    This just happened to me too. Nothing was running. Launching another game (which Oculus did grudgingly as it told me I had another app running) then closing it solved it. I hadn't even played an Oculus game for at least 14 hours. Definitely very buggy.

    I have had this problem for ages, turns out it was caused by a WebVR plugin in Firefox.
