    Adding PC to Microsoft account list of devices

    Hello,

    I go into Microsoft account and look under list of devices and it tells me that there are no devices associated with the Microsoft Account. Really? That is strange because the PC I am using is signed in on the Microsoft account. Because the device is not
    listed, it is causing problems with some apps and stuff.

    From support around adding devices, it would seem you can only add win 10 devices? So is this why my PC is invisible - because it is running 8.1?

    By the way, I have tried waiting for 30 days and it does not automatically appear. I have also signed in with a local and then redone with a Microsoft account and that does nothing either.

    Any suggestions please?

    regards,
     
  3. Microsoft Account Adding a Device

    Hi Greg

    Thanks for replying adding a device / PC to Microsoft :)

    Yes I am signed in to my account on this PC.

    When trying to download a game from the Microsoft store it said there were no applicable devices linked to your Microsoft account.

    Despite my PC being listed as a device when I checked it still wouldn't let me install it.

    I removed it as a device and tried re-adding it but that's when the message I listed in the original post comes up.

    I tried waiting a few hours as I only just got Microsoft game pass.

    Not sure what to do now to be honest

    windows 7 can't see my microsoft sidewinder gamepad

    I'm trying to install a gamepad from the year 2000
    I tried adding a device automatically using "add device" under "hardware and sound" it never ended looking for devices and nothing showed so I cancel it, then I tried adding a legacy hardware under action menu on device manager but my device wasn't listed.

    as a last try I used the game port to usb adapter but it detected it as unknown device and searched for microsoft drivers but there were no sidewinders listed.

    this use to work under xp but is not listed or detected on win7 I need the driver for it it's a microsoft gamepad that uses the gameport to connect to the pc. Is there a wey to take the driver from the windows xp disc?
