Getting Started with the SDK

This guide describes how to install the SDK and try the demos.

Oculus Rift Setup

Before installing the SDK, Oculus recommends making sure the firmware, runtime, and hardware are correctly configured and tested.

To install the runtime and hardware, follow the steps in Oculus Setup. If you are not running the latest firmware while using Oculus Setup, it will automatically install the latest firmware and drivers.
