All Oculus Rift headsets have stopped working

  • Nvidia 388.59 Driver Update Oculus Rift

Reports from VR users across numerous websites and forums began to mount earlier today, all claiming that the Oculus client was no longer launching applications (or, indeed, not launching at all) - and was instead returning error messages such as "Can't Reach Oculus Runtime Service" or "Failed to initialise with Oculus: Signature Invalid".

If an expired certificate is the cause of the errors, Oculus will likely have to issue a patch in order to fix the problems.

Users and developers managed to narrow down the problem to a particular.dll file called OculusAppFramework.dll.

"We are aware of and actively investigating an issue impacting ability to access Rift software", the company said.

Oculus Rift headsets across the globe have reportedly stopped working in unison, thanks to an apparent technical oversight on Oculus' part. "Our teams apologise for any inconvenience this may be causing you and appreciate your patience while we work on a resolution".

Forum user Mace404 shared this as evidence that a key certificate expired today, suggesting that as one possible cause of the problem.

If you have to get into virtual reality right now, and you can't wait for an Oculus fix, some Rift owners have found a workaround.

"For security, we use a certificate to ensure that the software you receive actually comes from Oculus", Oculus says. As this Reddit user pointed out, messing with the system clock could have unintended consequences for other software on your PC.

The best advice, for now, is to sit tight until Oculus can get an update out to re-validate its software.
