  1. Xbox 360 controller on Windows 8.1 won't work


    When trying to set up a 360 controller for use on my win 8.1 laptop, the controller does not appear in the joy.cpl menu. I have downloaded the correct driver and am running on the correct compatibility settings. Any help appreciated.

    There is no controller driver to download for Windows 8 because the driver is already installed as part of the Operating System. This applies to both the Desktop version of Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 8/8.1RT for Windows Surface Tablets.

    If you have a wired Xbox 360 controller, just plug it in, it will work straight away. For wireless controllers you still need a wireless gaming receiver. And yes, the receiver does work with Windows 8RT.

    360/X1 Compatibility

    It would be like installing some game designed for Windows 3.1 on a Windows 8.1 PC. 360=3.1 and One=8.1 to be clear. MS, as stated by Eggnogga, is working on an emulator or the like that will play (some if not all) 360 games.

    Xbox 360 controller not working on Windows 8

    @SlightJeans3. The Xbox 360 controller both wired and wireless (with a gaming receiver for the wireless pad) are compatible and work fine in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. There is no driver to download for Windows 8 as the driver is already installed and ready
    to go for Windows 8 PC's and surface tablet devices.

    I've been using mine this week to play the PC version of Skyrim. Not only that, but in the coming weeks the Xbox One controller will also be supported for Windows.
