I've been trying all over to get my USB Xbox 1 Controller with Windows 7, and it seems like an impossible task. The driver I've tried is XBCD.. I've heard people getting it working on Windows 7 with a lot of hard work.

To start I've already disabled driver signing since the XBCD drivers are not digitally signed drivers.. But I get an error when I chose the drivers

"The folder you specified doesn't contain compatible software drivers for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64 based systems" etc..

Can anyone help me out? Whats ironic is the controller works fine on Mac OSX :P..

Check out the JoyToKey program. It's very similar to Xpadder except it works with Windows 7 and is free.

Yeah, that's what I would recommend. Fairly simple and gets you around a lot of the stuff Windows 7 doesn't like.

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!
