I have tried Repairing, Reinstalling, Deleting every Folder that says Oculus In Local and Roaming Appdata. Still Don’t work, I have tried Starting OVR.X64.Servers Manually And Still didn’t work.

Nor using YouTube to get it to work. Nothing works.

Also I tried going to log file to see what was happening. (C:\Users\(my username)\AppData\Local\Oculus\Fixer.log)
2. Searched for the errors found in there (I got IPC connection attempt failed)

Hey there! We appreciate you trying out those troubleshooting steps, this sounds like a real doozy. It's never fun getting error messages, we'd love to get to the bottom of this! To start, we have a few troubleshooting options available on our site here. You'll also want to make sure your USB drivers are up to date!

If that doesn't help resolve your issue, please reach out to our support team with your PC logs so we can look into this further for you. Here's how to gather your logs:

  1. Open the Run window (Windows key + R).
  2. Enter and run: C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-diagnostics\OculusLogGatherer.exe
  3. The above link is the default directory. Bear in mind that if you installed the Oculus PC app to another drive you will need to update the command with the correct file path.
  4. Select the checkbox next to ‘Full logs’.
  5. Select "1 day" from the "Collect last" drop down list.
  6. Wait for the log collection to finish. This can take some time to complete.
  7. The program will automatically generate a zip file containing your logs, which will be saved to your desktop.
  8. Attach the newly created zip file to your support ticket.

We look forward to hearing from you!
