Hi guys. My Oculus residence just updated to variation 12.1 and also told me that will stop working ~ above my windows 7 after January 14, 2020! try putting turn off the update if you are choose myself happy through Windows 7.

You are watching: Oculus rift windows 7

I was forced to update to windows 10 :( ... As there was no workaround.


 

For work: iMac mid-2010 of 27" - main point i7 870 - 6 GB DDR3 1333 MHz - ATI HD5670 - SSD 256 GB - HDD 2 TB - macOS High Sierra

For Gaming: 34" monitor - Ryzen 3600 - 32 GB DDR4 2400 - nVidia GTX1070ti - SSD 1.25 TB - HDD 10 TB - Win10 agree - TM HOTAS Cougar - Oculus Rift CV1

Well. I installed Windows 10, every drivers and DCS, yet CANNOT install Oculus ((( once asked to continue in VR, that is just dark. Tried come reinstall three times already, cleaning every folders, registry. Home windows Defender off, all the stuff together per troubleshoots. Facebook support is useless. My Rift still works fine v Windows 7 install which i cloned come a preventive HDD (dead slow!). Furious, involved went here (((

I never realised that Oculus ever supported Win7, i think you"ve had a great run there. Win10 is fine, simply go through it. Perform you have any kind of compelling factor to stick through Win7? The oldest software I run is CorelDraw 9 from about 15 years back and it runs fine.

 

edit: There"s clear a problem but Oculus and Win10 play nicely on most systems, there need to be something unique about your setup. Room you saying Oculus works however just no in DCS or does it not work at all?

In my endure 99% the the problems civilization have v windows 10 come from all the shit they perform trying to avoid updates or paranoid counter surveillance bullshit.

 

 

 

First inquiry would it is in if you space running an overclock.

You can run an OC without worry for weeks, then update a driver and also presto BSOD.

 

Before install disconnect USB devices, especially the rift.

 

If that fails do a clean install, download the home windows media creation tool and also make a bootable USB medium and also a clean wipe of device drive.

 

Being happy running windows 7 now is favor saying your happy through gout, girlfriend don"t really require that ideal foot because that walking or anything.

Yeah first rule the thumb when using DDU to clean out vehicle drivers - disconnect the ethernet cable.

When I execute this I always have the latest Nvidia chauffeurs downloaded, and also after removing via DDU and also then restarted, ns install the new drivers. Then affix the ethernet cable ago in.

There IS a method to store Oculus native updating... Block it v the home windows Firewall. Also way you won"t have to deal with the save loading as soon as all you desire to execute is fly.

Oculus home can quickly be turned turn off in the Oculus Home choices so it never ever loads...

I have never interpreted the big deal though, I simply launch Oculus software program then minimize, launch DCS and also put mine headset on. Oculus home fades to gray quiet when video game is launched.

My Rift tho works through WIN 8.1 - the error message can be ignored.

The error window cannot be closed though, that keeps ~ above popping up.

 

Support finish does not median the Oculus software application stops working.

It just means that Oculus will no much longer guarantee it will work flawlessly in the future.
