When I click the Start icon it changes to "Now Playing" for about half a second, then back to start. That's it. Never does anything else. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice. Then I rebooted Windows, reinstalled CARS again. No change.

Brand new Rift delivered 10 days ago.
Brand new Alienware X51 R3 PC. 8Gb RAM.
Windows up to date as of today.
Nothing else installed on the machine since purchase other than the Rift.
(I'm not a Windows user so it's pretty painful to find out anything about the setup.)

Any ideas?
Laurence

Did you purchase the game from Steam or the Oculus store?

In your Steam library, you need to right-click Project CARS and select the Oculus Rift launch option instead of the default 'Play Game'
