When you get to the part where you are browsing for the driver manually
just choose show all and look under microsoft, you should then see the Microsoft Common Controller for Window Class

Reboot your computer even, then plug the gaming reciever in.

The reason this happens is because you bought a chinese knock off. I bought one too and I had to install it like walkers post said. It works fine though.

Driver not found.

Got a virus last week and did a quick reformat and I discovered that the windows common class driver location was not there. To fix this I went the Microsoft website and downloaded the Xbox 360 Accessories Software 1.2. Once I installed this suite the driver option was then available by manually installing the driver. The accessory software is not an option, you must install it!

I bought a generic xbox 360 wireless receiver for PC and it works perfectly on my vista 32bit system, but will not work with my windows 7 64bit pc.
I manually install the drivers and all the works, but the controllers won't connect to the receiver.
Any ideas what could be wrong and/or what I can do to make them work?

Yes follow Walkers Post on first page, and also keep in mind post above yours if you don't get the Microsoft Common Controller to show up.

After a reboot, try a different USB port and see if it works then.

I just bought a Wireless Gaming Receiver and the disc included was broken. The device appears to work, but I don't have a driver for it. It says on the package that it is compatible with Windows 7, but I cannot find a driver download online. Does anyone know where I could get one? Thanks.
