Microsoft Window 10 Not Compatible W/ Oculus Rift DK2

Window 10 offers free worldwide upgrade. In last several months, we have seen tons of websites urging PC users to take advantage of this fantastic offer.

The Window 10 free upgrade started on July 29, although not all PC owners received a free upgrade option, some of my friends already did and have shared screen captured of the Window 10 interface.

Message From Oculus VR  Regarding Window 10 Support

Which is great for majority of PC users, however, there is one big problem if you are an Oculus DK2 headset owner. Below is the original message from Oculus VR Team:

 

“Our software team is working as quickly as possible to complete Windows 10 compatibility with our SDK and the Oculus Runtime. As Windows 10 is not officially supported at this time, we strongly suggest that Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 owners do not upgrade from previous versions of Windows until we have the officially updated SDK and Oculus Runtime available.” Nicole from Oculus VR

Oculus VR’s message is plain and simple, which translates to hold your horse on Window 10 upgrade if you own a Oculus DK2. Window’s new operating system is not supported by Oculus’s current SDK at the moment.

We were in shock and felt lucky that we didn't take the advantage and upgrade to Window 10!

 

We are very surprised by the announcement, but we were lucky to hold down and wait when we were invited to upgrade our Window 8 to Window 10 because we didn’t want to be the white rats.  Hopefully Oculus will have the updated and Window 10 compatible SDK soon! I am sure Oculus will solve the issue way before Oculus CV1 launch!
