"I've looked for this driver everywhere. Even Micro$$oft no longer have it available.

Works perfect with XP, just ignore the warning, or use Compatibility Mode on the installer.

You can use the controller without this driver in XP, but you can't bind any keys, and have to use the default configuration.

Thank You."

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
