Windows 7: Drivers for a game controller moved to new computer won't register

Drivers for a game controller moved to new computer won't register

I recently plugged in a gamepad I had used on my old (vista) computer. Windows installed drivers that sort of worked but weren't as functional as my old ones. I copied the gamepad's DLL/instal folder over to this (7) computer and tried to register the dlls. Regsvr32 gave me the error: The module "name and location of dll.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that "name and location of dll.dl" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

I need this to work with the other drivers.
Here's a file list of the DLL folder:

______________________807USB Gamepad.exe
______________________811USB Gamepad.exe
______________________813USB Gamepad.exe

None of the .exe files seem to do anything.
I can't find the original installation file on the internet anywhere but the old driver name/version was: "TWIN PS TO PC CONVERTER Driver Version: 3.51(2007.01)"
