Were you talking to me? If so.....

Well one would assume when you buy a Wireless Controller you'd know you need the adapter - So yeah, I might have overlooked post #2

Sorry
No, lol, I was asking the OP if he saw post #2 since he posted after I did and it looks like he didn't even read what I wrote.
LOL - Sorry man, I just saw your post after mine. It's all good

Yeah, it's looks like you got ripped because Microsoft's adapter is supported in both 32 and 64-bit versions of 7.

Sorry dude
