Microsoft Sidewinder Dual Strike Gaming Controller

Are there any Windows 7 drivers for the controller? I have tried installing the Vista drivers in compatibility mode. No good!

Thanks!

You could try forcing the install by going into device manager click on update driver software>browse my computer>let me pick>have disk> browse navigate to where you downloaded the file>click(or double click) the .inf file>hit ok> then next and see if it will install. Fabe
