    To see C:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\appData\Roaming\PeerNetworking you must allow seeing hidden files from the view tab.

    This isn't much help, but I recently connected my XBOX ONE controller to my PC and it downloaded and installed the drivers automatically. It worked fine after that. My only guess is maybe the 15 foot USB cable is messing up the detection? Try a shorter cable just to see if you can get it working, then switch back to the long cable. I think you can also get a WIFI dongle so you can use it wirelessly, just like you do on the XBOX. What is it listed as in device manager?

    In device manager , it comes up at xbox peripherals.. I tired it without the extension cable, same result.
    I have the original 360 controller.. we're these compatible with a pc?

    My guess its just the game not seeing it for some reason? I just plugged mine in and it shows up as Xbox Peripherals > Xbox Controller. You'll have to look thorough the game setup menu to see if its set keyboard or something?

  9. This is what it should show in device manager, this is the original white 360 controller with the huge usb lead connected to it

  10. I've only ever used mine to play an XBOX Game through the XBOX App. I haven't tried to play a PC game on my PC with it, not yet anyway.

  12. to see if your controller is working ok
    type in joy.cpl at a run prompt to bring up the joystck control panel


    new guy, looking for help with 360 controller [​IMG]


    Click the properties button, now check movement with left stick and buttons to see if you get a response

    If all is working with this then the controller is connected and working fine, must be a setting in the game somewhere to get it going

    I did that. When the box opens the controller does not pop up in the box. I can see it in device manager.. so it a software problem not hardware
