Meta Quest Remote Desktop app doesn't respect startup settings

The Meta Quest Remote Desktop app on Windows 11 insists on launching automatically every time Windows boots even though I have the setting unchecked.

It's also annoying that the app doesn't show up under Startup apps in Task Manager so that I can disable it from there.

Submitting feedback via the app doesnt work either. It seems to want to open the old Windows Mail app before opening the new Outlook app in Windows 11 23H2, and then does nothing.

I'm having the same issue. How such a basic functionality does not work is beyond me - I have never seen a single autostart service that does not respect startup configs in my whole entire life. Mindblowing.

  1. Windows + R
  2. Type services.msc and enter
  3. Find OculusRemoteDesktopService
  4. Right click on properties and either set the startup option to manual or disabled (you will have to turn it on to launch it manually)

@MetaQuestSupport do you think there's any relationship between the Oculus PC app and the Meta Quest Remote Desktop? 

 

I'm surprised to see that mentioned in the instructions for troubleshooting but it would be good to know if one has any impact on the other.

 

I know the team has been alerted to the bug report issues, we've reported this recently from the Workrooms Community because it makes sending issues much more difficult without it working.

 

Hopefully it will be resolved soon along with startup toggle and the login issues.

While we don't have an exact fix for this, we do try our best to offer troubleshooting options like uninstalling and reinstalling both apps.

As of now, it still doesn't respect startup settings. It's not even listed in startup tasks, but does everytime, and takes up too much CPU when trying to shut it down. I have to use task manager every time. Not sure if this is still relevant or just me. I fixed it manually through services manager.

Agreed - this issue is still not solved for me, since a recent Oculus app update it now does not appear in Windows Startup apps, has no option within the Oculus app itself to toggle startup behaviour, and consumes monstrous amounts of CPU until I manually kill it...including all the processes that remain running even after the app itself has been closed. Meta Link App Version 62.0.0.235.346 (62.0.0.235.346)
