    When launching Project Cars 2 in VR from Steam, it also uses Oculus SDK

    I usually play with Oculus Rift, but I switched today to HTC Vive. That works fine for all other VR games, but Project Cars 2 keeps launching the Oculus SDK, even if I select "Launch in VR" (non Rift) when launching PC from Steam. I tried various command (otherVR -silent), tried deleting all xml settings files without any success: PC keeps launching Oculus Home and ignore the HTC Vive.... does anybody would have an idea? In fact, I feel this problem will become more apparent when Rift's users will switch to Pimax 8k....

    Right-click the Oculus shortcut -> Properties -> Compatibility and down at the bottom check the box "Run this program as an administrator"

    I think -otherVR is for the Rift, -VR (or -vr) is for the Vive.

    Thank you for you answers!
    @smartin13: that seems to effectively prevent Oculus Home to pop, but unfortunately PC2 stil stays on the monitor, not in the Vive (even with SteamVR launched)
    @sherpa25: true...Oculus is "theothervrheadset"!!!

    did you try this? To launch the game directly to VR mode, create a desktop shortcut and point it to steam://launch/378860/othervr (for the Rift) or steam://launch/378860/vr (for the Vive)

    Yes; I tried with both with PCARS2 and PCARS2AVX, with no success: PC2 launches on the monitor, totally ignoring SteamVR!

    By Steam shortcut, you mean my launching in Steam app, in the list of installed games, selecting the VR (non Rift) shortcut?

    ...still not found a way to force Project Cars 2 VR to launch in SteamVR/OpenVR and NOT in Oculus, even with preventing Oculus Home to pop up (run as administrator), even with killing OVR processes running etc.... grrr!!!!

    if you have switched to the vive I recommend just shutting off the oculus service entirely.

    Run as admin doesn't do anything but hiding it. it's still there running in background.
    It should shut down the service if you disconnect the rift entirely though.

    open task manager- services tab, I recommend sorting by name and scroll down to "osvr runtime" or something, right click and stop process.
