Software error causes mass Oculus Rift outage

Software error causes mass Oculus Rift outage

In lieu of official word from Oculus, the VR community (as reported by VRFocus) took it upon itself to isolate the cause of the problem.

A wave of Rift users have taken to Reddit to complain that the Oculus client will no longer launch, and that error messages like, "Failed to initialise with Oculus: Signature Invalid" and "Can't Reach Oculus Runtime Service" were being returned. Nat Mitchell, Co-Founder and Head of Rift at Oculus, also tweeted out "We're aware of an issue affecting Rift on PC, and we're working on resolving now". Until then Oculus Rift owners will have to settle for plain old boring regular reality. Now they have to address their own internal problems with an expired certificate.

It was recently confirmed that Rift had overtaken Vive as the most popular VR device on Steam. So Oculus has issued the following statement.




Just let my Oculus software update and the OculusAppFramework.dll file has a new certificate, so after that you can set the time back to normal. "Our teams apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing you and appreciate your patience while we work on a resolution".

For now, there's no timeline on a fix, but Oculus says it will update that support thread as it learns more.

Some users have changed their system clocks to before when the certificate expired as a temporary workaround, but I wouldn't advise it.
