CaTaPulT Posted April 26, 2017 Share Posted April 26, 2017 Hi everyone. I don't know about you, but I have Oculus Home installed and everytime I first do something with my Vive, Oculus home fires up and is annoying especially when not wanted. Oculus runs something in the background and autoloads it when you start your computer and this is what calls up Oculus home to start when you do pretty much anything in the Vive. Here's a way to stop that from happening. :) I found this little batch file that stops "OVRService" in the background, once this is stopped, Oculus Home doesn't start up when you do something with the Vive. All you have to do is copy and paste this into notepad, and save it to your desktop and call it what you want (mine is OVRService on_off.bat). Once you have this on your desktop, right click it, run it as administrator and it will stop the OVRservice process, do this again to turn it back on. :) Here's the batch file.... I added the pause command so you have a chance to read it, just press any key to close the batch window. sc config OVRService start= demand net start "OVRService" if %errorlevel% == 2 net stop "OVRService" pause Regards: Jack PS: I just tested this and as long as you have "Revive" installed, you'll still have access to the software you downloaded from Oculus Home through the Revive dashboard option. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
