MSFS 2020 VR with the Oculus Rift (S)

Thought I’d start a new thread because I found all the VR stuff I was reading here a bit confusing since everyone seems to be concerned with getting the HP G2 working well. Oculus Rift S has nothing to do with Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality (WMR).

I ordered MSFS 2020 from Steam so I have two options for the VR runtime … OpenXR or SteamVR.

Whichever you choose, you should opt into the Oculus or SteamVR Beta programs respectively (PM me if you’re unsure how to do this).

Now all you have to do is set your VR runtime in this registry key …


Set the ActiveRuntime data to either …




Your drive locations may vary. I’ve found OpenXR to be much superior up to this point.

Kudos to Asobo for releasing VR prior to Christmas vacation!
