Play all your old incompatible games! Space Engine, Euro Truck Sim, Alien Isolation...Download a portable Runtime Switcher with GUI above. Contains all the scripts and files you need (apart from the old Runtimes themselves).

Simply extract and run. Stays in the system tray if you close it, can be closed by right-clicking the system tray icon.


  • Install the latest Oculus Runtime (currently 1.3) and leave in default install location
  • Install whichever older runtimes you want to use (rebooting as necessary etc.) - when you install make sure you change the installation path DURING installation as follows:

    For 0.5 install to c:\program files (x86)\Oculus_0500
    For 0.6 install to c:\program files (x86)\Oculus_0600
    For 0.7 install to c:\program files (x86)\Oculus_0700
    For 0.8 install to c:\program files (x86)\Oculus_0800
  • Run the switcher and click whichever option you wish

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT CHANGING INSTALL PATHS. Read instructions about getting 0.6 working. All inside.
