DK1 Runtime Download Copies - 0.7.0.0 for Dev Kit 1 - Recyling and donation program

Hi it seems while support for old rift units has been dropped for the most part, and I understand the decision to move to the consumer edition, I have an old kit and was hoping for some help with the following:

1) Where are copies of the old drivers for DK1 (0.7.0.0 runtime should work)? I could not find copies of these ANYWHERE on the web, so could anyone think of a way I can get an DK1 up and running for demonstrating VR purposes?
2) Does oculus have a recyling or donation program?

Thanks
Mannan

    Anyone? I guess its safe to say no one in the oculus team cares about the early backers who helped get the product started.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Oculus Forums.

    1) The oldest legacy runtime is 0.8.0.0 located here: https://developer.oculus.com/downloads/package/oculus-runtime-for-windows/

    2) Not at this time.

    We still support the DK2 for Oculus Home and continue to push the envelope in future rift variants like the currently available CV-1. The DK1 is not compatible with the experiences and content currently available on the Oculus Store and as such is no longer supported at this time.

    Hi Imperativity,

    Thanks for the response. I only own the DK1, is there anyway at all I can get older runtmies before 0.8.0? That one isn't compatible with DK1 and/or seems to be missed some content that makes it possible to run the rift per the guides (i'll post here once i find it again).

    Maybe someone at the oculus team has it sitting on a server or hard drive somewhere? Or could you find it on google or anywhere at all? ALLL and i mean EVERY SINGLE guide references the oculus website to download the SDK, which isn't available any longer! Perhaps theres an archive website or google drive you could find the time to upload it to please.

    Reminding you. Any trace of the DK1 files ANYWHERE?

    Sorry, I never got a reminder to see these posts. We do not have any older versions of our runtime that I have access to. Runtime 0.80 is the only one we continue to host on site.
