    This is not a fix. I don't think is fair that someone can mark it as fixed just because is fixed on a newer version. This is just unity workers who want a checklist pass off. Not actually help the community. We can't use anything new because Oculus can't run on any 2018.3 version or newer. So having the window profiler error in older versions make unity obsolete for Quest or any Oculus Program that you want to test. We need these tools.

    Is this going to be fixed in Unity v.2018? I don't plan on going to version v.2019.
