    xbox 360 wireless controller working on steam, but not working on windows games (started...


    Hello,

    I've got windows 10 with the latest update installed, I also have wireless xbox 360 controller.

    It works perfectly fine under Steam but I can't get it working with any of my games run from Xbox app (I've tried Guacamele 2, Gears of War 4, Timespinner).

    I've no idea if that is result of steam changes (it has over taken controller) or anything else.

    Maybe these games needs Xbox one controller ?


    When I run joy.cpl all looks great, however downloaded app "Game Controller Tester" couldn't find mine controller.


    Any ideas what to do, what to check ?


    Thanks

    :)
