Help please. "Session "OculusVadApoEventTrace" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035"

Level 2
This has only been happening since i've got my Oculus Rift S, i'm using the device or it's plugged in in the background and not being used.

All of a sudden my PC is making disconnecting device sounds, (my experience) my corsair icue profiles all default and stop then starts again in a few seconds, my mouse and keyboard also stop and restart, I look in my event viewer and see this error literally one thousand times "Session "OculusVadApoEventTrace" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035"

It's starting to become one hell of a nuisance, I see other people who too have the same problems, it's not my own PC it seems to be the Oculus software but no topic on here or Reddit EVER has a fix for this.

Please does anyone else know a fix to this?

I have a Quest 2 - but the same issue

Level 3

Same as McSly, always on startup i have loads of these messages, but everything seems to work fine. Too bad Oculus developers dont seem to answer questions on this forum.

I'm having the exact same issue as you are describing, Session "OculusVadApoEventTrace" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035, my mouse disconnects, my keyboard, I can hear all kinds of usb devices connecting disconnecting. This is with a Rogstrix B550-E/5800x/32GB corsair mem. Eventually my whole system crashes, but its not only now when im using Oculus actively. So what is this service and how can I stop this ? Im no expert but I can see that this is seriously F-ing this up. So anybody out there with the same issues ? Maybe an Oculus Dev can come in and save the day 

I am also having the same issue described by scratchyfox.

Level 2

I too am seeing this.

Windows event viewer and I have 2000+ of these errors in the past 7 days. I wouldn't care if it had no impact, but it does have a clear and real detrimental impact. USB devices disconnect. My monitors disconnect. Some software I am running (e.g. Bluestacks) also crash.
