[Windows 10] XBox One Controller

Recommended Posts

My XBox One controller wouldn't work after upgrading to Windows 10 even though the driver looked OK and it was detected in Control Panel. This fixed it:

  • Open Device Manager
  • Right-click on the XBox controller (right at the bottom of the list)
  • Select Update Driver Software
  • Select Browse
  • Select Let me pick
  • Select Microsoft Xbox One Controller

There are are a couple of choices in there:

  • Xbox One Controller - Doesn't work, this was the default selected driver 
  • Microsoft Xbox One Controller works

I know it's not an xbox one controller, but I've no experience at all with Xboxes.

Anyways, I had picked up this controller to go with an xbox 360 but it's no longer needed for the 360 so I figured I would use it for my PC.

It doesn't have any usb cord or anything and takes regular batteries so I'm trying to connect it to the pc wirelessly.

I have a Bluetooth dongle that works fine for everything else but it just can't seem to find the controller. I went to microsofts download center and downloaded the windows drivers for the controller, but that doesn't seem to do anything to help with the pairing.

 

any suggestions?

Oh, well that stinks. What if I get a usb cable for it, something like this?

*edit*

I should mention that MS had 2 different drivers for the 360 controller, 1 wired and 1 wireless so I guess some do work and maybe some don't? or maybe you need to connect it via USB first? (I think that's how you have to do the ps3 controllers)

The 360 wireless controller with the usb lead only used the lead for charging - there's no actual data link. i.e the one that I got with my 360. You need a fully wired 360 one. 

The Xbox one wireless controller plus lead works fine though. It's great in Witcher 3 for example.

Better off buying the Xbox one controller if you have to buy anything. All the PC games are optimised for its layout. shadows of mordor, witcher, gta, etc.  One less thing to mess about with while trying to get a pc game to run optimally.  It's a great controller as well :)

I already have 1 wired controller specifically for pc that's set up just like a playstation controller. Just figured since I had the 360 controller that wasn't being used for anything...

But I did some searching last night and it seems in order to use a wireless 360 controller, you need one of these:

via the instructions here:

The Steam controller will have exactly the same layout - for compatibility reasons.

Microsoft has stated that they can kill pirated software, games, and non-genuine or modified hardware. Personally, I have a controller clone that I got super-cheap from one of those Chinese websites [AliExpress?] and I've been waiting for it to stop working... :'(

To use the wireless xbox360 controller with a modern windows platform you need a specific dongle made for the task.

HDE USB Wireless Receiver Compatible with Xbox 360 Controllers for Computer PC Gaming

  - or -

Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows

The device needed for the Xbox One Controller has not been released yet..

Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows

For now the any Xbox One controller works with windows when tethered via a micro to standard usb cable. Many people report having issues with 3rd party or "charging" cables though.

      Hi,
      at work we changed now from windows 7 to windows 10. Suddenly this command _GUICtrlListView_GetHotItem() isn't working anymore for me. When I drag&drop a listviewitem it always returns -1.
      Here is the script that worked with WIN7:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListView.au3> #include <Misc.au3> Local $aArray_Base[5][2] = [["0 - 0", "0 - 1"], ["1 - 0", "1 - 1"], ["2 - 0", "2 - 1"], ["3 - 0", "3 - 1"], ["4 - 0", "4 - 1"]] GUICreate("listview", 220, 200) Global $g_idListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 10, 10, 200, 180) _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($g_idListView, "Col 1", 100) _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($g_idListView, "Col 2", 100) _GUICtrlListView_AddArray($g_idListView, $aArray_Base) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN _Arrange_List() EndSwitch WEnd Func _Arrange_List() Local $iSelected = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectionMark($g_idListView) If $iSelected = -1 Then Return While _IsPressed(1) WEnd Local $iDropped = _GUICtrlListView_GetHotItem($g_idListView) ConsoleWrite("GetHotItem: " & $iDropped & @CRLF) If $iDropped > -1 Then _GUICtrlListView_BeginUpdate($g_idListView) If $iSelected < $iDropped Then _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem($g_idListView, "", $iDropped + 1) _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($g_idListView, $iDropped +1, _GUICtrlListView_GetItemTextString($g_idListView, $iSelected), -1) _GUICtrlListView_DeleteItem($g_idListView, $iSelected) ElseIf $iSelected > $iDropped Then _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem($g_idListView, "", $iDropped) _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($g_idListView, $iDropped, _GUICtrlListView_GetItemTextString($g_idListView, $iSelected + 1), -1) _GUICtrlListView_DeleteItem($g_idListView, $iSelected + 1) EndIf _GUICtrlListView_SetItemSelected($g_idListView, $iDropped) _GUICtrlListView_SetSelectionMark($g_idListView, $iDropped) _GUICtrlListView_EndUpdate($g_idListView) EndIf EndFunc Any ideas?
      Regards, Simpel
       
      P.S. If I click an item then $iDropped is returning the correct number.

      I have a application that have a function is to create a shortcut to desktop, lets say is ChromePortable.lnk.
      $iCreate = FileCreateShortcut($DIR_WA_FOLDER & '\GoogleChromePortable.exe', $DIR_SHORTCUT, $DIR_WA_FOLDER, '--kiosk "https://example.com/"') So the shortcut will be launch as kiosk mode and force to enter the specific website. However, the user is still able to right-click on the shortcut and modify the target value to remove the kiosk mode. What can I do to disable the user to editing the target value?
      So far, I had asked and tried from SuperUser for advises Disable Shortcut Target Field
      icacls "ChromePortable.lnk" /GRANT EVERYONE:RX So this will set the permission of this shortcut file to only Read & Execute only! But after I set it, the user is still can modify.
      Please kindly advise.
      Please note and assume that user don't have Administration account or etc, that should be only have 1 account to logon to the computer.
       
      EDIT:
      I must disable inheritance to remove all others permissions like SYSTEM, ADMINISTRATORS, etc. Then only GRANT everyone for READ & EXECUTE only.
      But still the user can go to edit the permissions tho. Any advise?

      When I compiled my script or any script to exe using 32 bit compiler and ran on 32 bit machine, I am getting below error.
       

       
      But it is 32 bit only.
       
      And, for testing, I disabled smart screen also, but same issue.
      Please suggest.

      Hi All, I am new to AutoIT and exploring options to use it in my organization. I tried couple of examples and it is fantastic. I am trying to run restrictions test in a pc to see if certain options are disabled like print screen, mstsc etc. I could not get a hang of it. Any help is much appreciated.
