Controllers not working with Steam VR

I bought The Forest on Steam to use with my Oculus Rift S.  The game loads but the controllers won't let me select anything.  Steam VR is definitely loading.  Could it just be the game?  It's the first Steam VR game I'm trying to play and it's annoying I can't get it to work.

Get a free VR game and try it on that. If that still doesn't work, contact Oculus support.

I've seen that the problem tends to fix itself.  It hasn't for me yet. (first day) Anyone?

I noticed, sometimes while in SteamVR, I had to push the menu button, pull up settings, go to controllers and either download or install a user created controller map for that specific game.

Use a Microsoft XBox Controller for Windows 10 on the Oculus Rift S. Instead of using wireless on it, I used a USB cable to connect the PC to the controller. Instantly recognized by Oculus Rift S in the controller section of it's notification section. Works on Steam VR  as well as Oculus VR titles.
