Prevent Driver Changes

Notes

  • To be done after a proper driver is manually installed
  • This ensures Windows Update nor anything else can replace installed drivers for specific devices unattended
  • Additional entries need to add a new number (the value after /v)
  • The device ID can be acquired from Device Manager and should be pasted as-is (no extra slashes)

Base Policies

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceInstall\Restrictions" /v "DenyDeviceIDs" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "1" /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceInstall\Restrictions" /v "DenyDeviceIDsRetroactive" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f

Format

  • Do not copy/paste these as-is; only here for reference
  • Adjust to specific devices as-needed

Add Prevent Policy

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceInstall\Restrictions\DenyDeviceIDs" /v "#" /t "REG_SZ" /d "PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_XXXX&SUBSYS_XXXXXXXX&REV_XX" /f

Remove Prevent Policy

SideQuest

winget install "SideQuestVR.SideQuest"

ADB

  • :!: ADB drivers are automatically installed by Oculus
  • :!: For general .apk installs and adb shell commands, use SideQuest instead
  • :!: For sideloading firmware updates, SideQuest cannot be used, and thus will need the platform-tools package below

Backup/Restore

Installer

  • Let Oculus download its 5GB+ installer
  • While it is installing, backup the C:\OculusSetup-DownloadCache folder
  • :!: The backup must be done after the download, and while Oculus is installing
  • If restoring, transfer 5GB+ to C:\OculusSetup-DownloadCache and start the Oculus installer
  • :!: If an updated Oculus client is available, it will download instead of restoring

Client

  • Go to the Oculus\Support folder
  • If there's 15 folders, backup everything except oculus-dreamdeck-nux, oculus-touch-tutorial, and oculus-worlds
  • :!: 12 folders should be included in the backup and it should be around 605MB if archived
  • This has been true with versions pre-V12, V18-V30
  • For restoring, stop the Oculus service through command or Debug Tool, delete the existing 12 folders, restore the 12 folders from backup, and start the Oculus service
%OculusBase%\Support
Prevent Client Updates
  • This sets the update channel to something unknown, so the Oculus client can't compare its version to check for updates
  • :!: To revert this, it may be enough to toggle the Public Test Channel option from Oculus
  • LIVE Stable
  • PublicTest = Public Test Channel/PTC
  • NOUPD8 = Some nonsense value
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Oculus VR, LLC\Oculus\Config" /v "CoreChannel" /t "REG_SZ" /d "NOUPD8" /f
