[Request] Xinput Driver for Microsoft Common Controller

Post by strike01 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 8:39 am

Hello, I'm kinda new here. :)

I'd like to request the Xinput Driver used by newer gamepads (eg. X360 controller, Logitech F310, etc.). This is included in both Vista and 7 by default, but not on XP. Some games need it to work properly.

32 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/d ... 17CE25188B
64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/d ... FFB828BA4E

Thanks in advance!

Ah, shame. It seems that this problem is all over the Internet. An Internet search hints at using the X360 driver instead, which also includes the Xinput driver. Ref: http://www.pingwing.eu/2007/09/19/xinpu ... ontroller/

As of time of posting, here are the links to the X360 drivers.
32 bit: http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... _32Eng.exe
64 bit: http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... _64Eng.exe

Perhaps you can just extract the necessary Xinput files and register them into XP? Just a suggestion.

Try sfx maker and use /qn switch (all you need is the msi and its sub folders, leave the setup.exe and other stuff behind)

Or you can just enable Microsoft Update and update the driver that way, this way is best because no extra programs are installed/running

Downloading the driver from the Update Catalog gives me a CAB file. How do I install it?
