Unable to load rift home when using quest 2 with link cable

Level 2

When using quest link with my quest 2 I can use the dash and access the store and play all of the games in my library however if I press the button to go to my home the dash disappears, I get a loading circle for a few seconds before the window that pops up when opening apps shows up before disappearing and returning me to the dash with the loading circle still there.


I found a few posts from 2019 saying this is an issue with the default rift home being corrupted and suggesting a workaround of joining a friends home from the desktop app before putting their headset on to avoid loading the corrupted home. however I was never able to create a rift home and I am unable to join a friends home from the desktop app, I think the difference is that I'm using a quest 2 with link cable whereas others were using a rift headset.

I'm running a 3060ti, an i5 - 12400, 16Gb corsair vengeance 3200Mhz on a MSI PRO B660m-A WIFI ddr4 with the latest version of windows 11 and all my drivers are up to date. restring my headset as well as unplugging my link cable and trying air link were all unsuccessful at fixing my issue.


i have tried repairing the oculus software as well as doing a full reinstall of the software as suggested in other community posts with similar issues bun none of the solutions i have tried were successful. Im diong this i also was looking through the oculus folders i found a folder named Home2 in witch a new file is created every time i try and launch home a new log file is created and appears to have several errors in launching home.
