Visual Studio 2015 - Oculus SDK 0.8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I just installed Visual Studio Community 2015 and i downloaded the Oculus Rift SDK 0.8.

    I can run the demo from the oculus runtime and also run build the samples in visual studio.

    But when i run in debug mode the Oculus Room Tiny (GL) visual studio crashes. 

    A week ago it was working in visual studio 2013 but now it doesnt at all. I even uninstalled 2013 and 2015 and tried it in both with no result.

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi Marios,

    Thanks for your post.

    Since the it worked well in VS 2013 before you installed the Oculus Rift SDK 0.8. I think the cause may be not  your VS.

    In order to exclude the cause of VS. I suggest you could repair your VS and try it again. Or you could install VS2015 Update and try it again.

    If still crashed. I suspect the cause is that you installed the Oculus Rift SDK 0.8.

    To validate it. I suggest you could change another machine which does not install the Oculus Rift SDK 0.8. Then using same version VS2015 Community to try it again.

    If it works fine in other machine. I think the cause is that you installed the Oculus Rift SDK 0.8.

    Also I did research about the Oculus Rift SDK 0.8. I found it is probably a third party SDK and not come with Visual Studio.

    So If the issue is about Oculus Rift SDK 0.8 and not VS. I suggest you’d better post the issue to the Oculus forum:
