Windows 7: XBOX S Gamepad: working signed driver

XBOX S Gamepad: working signed driver

After a new install of Windows 7 on my new PC I was about to reinstall the unsigned XBCD 0.2.7 drivers for my old XBOX S gamepad when I decided to search the web a bit and found this entry:

HowTo get the Xbox Controller S working in Windows 7 (64-Bit) Pictures and Code

According to that entry the driver should work on Windows 7 with no modification.
But I had some problems myself because my pad wasn't detected.

I have Windows 7 Professional x 64 installed.
I use a direct XBOX to USB generic cable, no specific adapter, like this one:

I tried the different Magic Joy Box drivers available in the site (just in case):

PC035 3 in 1 Magic Joy Box

PC001 Super Joy Box 3
PC006 Super Joy Box 5
PC013 Super Dual Box

PC018 Super Joy Box 9
PC019 Super Joy Box 10
PC020 Super Joy Box 11

but none seemed to detect my gamepad (even after I set the setup executable to Vista SP2 compatibility mode as it is suggested in the website).

This is how I solved:

I chequed my gamepad and found that its hardware id was "USB\VID_045E&PID_0289" instead of the "USB\VID_045E&PID_0285" found in the Xpad.inf file that was installed with the driver ( ..\Windows\Inf\ folder )
So I manually edited the Xpad.inf file changing these lines in [TigerGame.NTx86] and [TigerGame.NTamd64] section:

Original lines:

Modified lines:

I restarted the computer and my pad was detected.

Everything seems to be working (even force feedback). The controller mode can be changed (there are 4 modes: Digital, Analog, Flight and DDR) and the buttons remaped.

No need to install "Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b" anymore!

Have you tried plugging it in and then getting windows to manually downloading the drivers. Or try going to windows update in the programs menu in start.

Try doing that or going ion the internet and finding a windows 7 supported driver that someone has already used.

windows 7 x64

I'm having an issue getting the 360 wired controller to run properly. I can't get it to be less sensitive. When I start a game the character is spinning around like a top. I've tried the calibration and that didn't fix it. I've seen around on the net something about xbcd drivers and wondering if this might be the fix I'm looking for. EVGA GTX 560 1G, x58mobo, i7 920, Win 7 pro x64.

Hi, I've got a Gravis Gamepad Pro USB and although a device is detected when I plug it in, it fails to install a driver. I can't find any Windows 7 x86 drivers on the net so I believe that I have to use some kind of standard HID driver to get it working, although I'm not sure which one. When...
