Reconnecting Oculus link and testing in studio causes studio to crash

If you are working in studio with a Quest 2 VR Headset, and the headset disconnects (either by the link cable coming out or the airlink dropping) and then reconnect, Studio will crash.

the easiest and most reproducible way to do this is with a link cable.

Step 1: Load up studio in VR mode (so that testing loads you into VR mode) with a quest 2 headset connected.
Step 2: Press Play
Step 3: Disconnect, and reconnect the quest 2.

when the quest 2 finishes reconnecting studio will crash.

Thanks for the report! We’ll follow up when we have an update for you.


If you use the VR runtime’s menu (Oculus Dash or SteamVR Menu) to close studio or the game client, it crashes either as soon as there is any rendering called to the headset. No need to disconnect the headset.

This crash is not exclusive to wireless headsets and can also be done on wired headsets.

Edit: I missed a word, sorry.
