How to run games form Oculus?

I cannot seem to figure out how to run games from Oculus. There are so me answers on this forum but none of them work so I started new topic.

What I have already done:

  1. Installed Oculus Store app from:
  2. Installed newest Revive Library from:
  3. Purchased few free games & apps in Oculus Store (they are visible in my Oculus library)
  4. Installed purchased games via Oculus App

I also have latest SteamVR, PiTool, Pimax Experience and I’m running Pimax 8KX hmd if it matters.
I don’t have any Oculus headset.
First time I run Revive i got message that it will automatically add Oculus apps to Steam library (it doesn’t, it also doesn’t run automatically with SteamVR like some people suggested)
Also if it does matter when I run Oculus App I get info that I need to “Configure Rift + Touch setup to be able to able to unlock free games and apps”

Result is that I cannot see my Oculus items listed neither in PiTool nor in Pimax Experience hence I am unable to run them.

Is there any step I am missing here? Maybe I need to add some Oculus HMD/Controller stub for this to work?

EDIT: I managed to get one game to show in my PimaxExperience dashboard but when I run it I see it displayed on my PC screen but my HMD says “loading” forever without showing the game.

I did install revive from here:

I also have Oculus Store installed.
Yet I can see my Oculus Library games in neither in Pimax Experience dashboard nor in PITool.

Is there any additional step I’m missing here?

just make a shortcut/batch file that runs the baked in revive of pitool you shouldnt need all that other stuff, heres a post with the syntax

Maybe you could try this method.

  1. Create a txt.file and type in
    (“C:\Program Files\Pimax\Plugin\OCSupport\OVR_Launcher_x64.exe” F:\Steam\steamapps\common\Project CARS 2\pCARS2.exe)
    2.Please change the game folder path according to your PC*
  2. Save the file and change it to BAT.file

You may try to open the game and run in oculus mode.
