Using Oculus Service in Remote Desktop

Level 5

I can run the Oculus runtime fine from the PC, but when I connect using Remote Desktop the app isn't running and I can't start it.


I'm trying to get some openXR work done on my gaming PC from my office.


Level 3

That's correct. An RDP session is isolated from the normal interactive user session that sees the real video card.  Since OVRServer can't see an interactive session, it dies and you get a message in the Windows Application event log.

You may need to use a remote access application that runs within the interactive session, e.g. VNC. You might also need to find a way to activate your headset if that is needed for what you're trying to do.
