How to install Oculus software on D drive

When you install the Oculus app on your PC computer, it'll install on the C: drive. If you want to install the app on a different system drive, make sure the new system drive has sufficient free disk space and is formatted to use the NTFS file system.
To install the Oculus app on a different system drive:
  1. 1.
    Press the Windows key + R to open the Run command
  2. 2.
    Enter the following path: [drive]:\Users\USERNAME\Downloads\OculusSetup.exe/drive=[new system drive]
    • Replace [drive] with the letter of the drive where Oculus was downloaded to.
    • Replace [new system drive] with the letter of the new drive you'd like to install Oculus to.
    • Examples:
      • C:\Users\USERNAME\Downloads\OculusSetup.exe /drive=D
      • C:\Users\USERNAME\Downloads\OculusSetup.exe /drive:D
  3. 3.
    Click OK.
The Oculus app will then open and attempt to install the app on the new drive you've chosen.


  • You know, normal app developpers make it so the app you download offers a built-in way to alter installation path. At the very, very least, the app should try to install by default in the folder you place it in. What kind of fucking moron decided the only way to alter the path should be to open the fucking console?? (These instructions do not work, by the way.)
