## [HOW-TO] ovr-platform-tool.exe example / walk-through

Level 5
Hey everyone!

I decided to record a quick video explaining how to use the ovr-platform-tool.exe utility to upload builds. This tool is very useful, and in my opinion, much faster to use than going to the website and uploading a build there.

Please let me know what you think, any feedback is welcomed. I also hope this helps someone out!

Hi, Great tutorial, any idea how to use ovr-platform-util on mac ?
Retired Support
@"dormakaba.mea" Welcome to the Oculus Developer Forums! The following steps should help you in how to launch the CLI tool on Mac:

1. Open terminal and cd to location of file

2. Type chmod +x ./ovr-platform-util

3. Run tool by typing ./ovr-platform-util plus desired function.

We are working to get these instructions into our documentation.

If you need immediate help or want additional support/context on an issue you are having with our platform or integrations:

1. Gather any and all logs, screenshots, and version numbers of relevant software (Oculus SDK, engine, etc.)
3. Tag me @mouse_bear once you have done so!

Hi, I have followed along and I cannot get this to work.  Is there any news on the documentation for this?  I am trying to upload for mobile using the video and the page: https://dashboard.oculus.com/tools/cli/

All I get is: 'ovr-platform-util' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.'

Hi @myerpheus

That sounds like you're not in the same directory as the downloaded ovr-platform-util tool itself.

When you open a command prompt, what does it say on the left near the C: part? You'll need to run a command like this:

cd c:\path\to\the_folder_where_ovr_tool_is\

Another trick is to open the folder where ovr-platform-util is downloaded, hold left-shift and right click. Do you see "open command prompt here"?

Thanks!

Hi @@tharun15

If so, you'll want to run a terminal in there with that command above.

See if you can double click and open that up. Let me know!

Thanks!

Hi there Legends!
I'm trying to upload a build file from my mac.. Terminal opened from the file that the command line utility is saved to.. I write the following command:

./ovr-platform-util upload-rift-build -a 123456 -s 123456 -d /Users/namemcnameface/Desktop -l Build_2.1.3.zip -v 1.1 -c alpha

... but keep getting message ERROR: Launch file /Users/namemcnameface/Desktop/Build_2.1.3.zip can not be launched on Windows platform...

any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

best,

TRT
