Windows 7: XBCD drivers for Xbox 360 gamepad

My first post... and I'll admit that I don't understand much about drivers etc, so please keep it simple!

I love the idea of using my wired 360 pad, but the sticks 'drift' if they're not returned completely to their neutral position; which is a pain for playing Halo, and things of that nature, because it kills the precision.

I installed XBCD 2.7 (or I think I did...), and I can't make it work. It installed fine (took a couple of minutes, though... felt like a long time) then asked me to restart the PC, which I did. I then launched Halo immediately, to see what the effect had been. The left stick was completely unresponsive, although the rest of the pad seemed to work fine.

[CLANG!], and an error; "Error in xbcdsu.dll ... Illegal value: requestedRunLevel".

I then tried to run x360ce.

[CLANG!], and another error; saying that I didn't have MSVCP100.dll.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance,



Ah. Actually, the triggers aren't working either. And nor is the D-pad. And uninstalling XBCD hasn't helped...!

Bugger. I hope I can get the old drivers back on...

... all the same, help would be deeply appreciated. If I get sort out this infernal drift, I'll have my ideal setup.

man how do you fix your problem is the same as im but only this is the only error i got (Error in xbcdsu.dll ... Illegal value: requestedRunLevel)
I returned to the desktop and tried to run the XBCD Setup Utility.

Install Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b, choose "Test Mode" and reboot.

Install the 0.2.6 drivers from XBCD - XBox Controller Driver Forum -> Latest 0.2.6 Version

Run the driver installer as Administrator, installing only drivers. Dont bother installing the certificate. Reboot.

Run DSEO again, hit Sign System File, then type "C:\windows\system32\drivers\xbcd.sys". Reboot again.

Open Device Manager, look for "Microsoft Common Controller For Windows Class", and goto properties for "Xbox 360 Controller".

Goto Driver tab, and click "Update Driver". Click on "Browse my Computer for Driver software".

Click on "Let me Choose" and you should see XBCD driver. Click it, hit ok and that should do the trick.

Open the XBCD Setup Util, and you should see the gamepad listed. The buttons go crazy, but this is a fault of the setup util, always has been. 0.2.6 even has built in profiles for different mappings, the one I use is triggers on seperate axis. I tested this out on rFactor and it works great, rumble support and all.

Hopes this helps anyone else having this problem!
"Click on "Let me Choose" and you should see XBCD driver. Click it, hit ok and that should do the trick."

Where?? The Xbox Controller are listed under "Other devices" here. Should I Browse for it, I tried didn't work putting "C:\Program Files (x86)\XBCD\Driver" there. And "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" doesn't list it anywhere..

Edit: I made it! I went for List devices then chose All devices, then chose XBC Project at the bottom :)

xbcd 64 bit for Hori FS-EX2


For those who are trying to get the XBCD (v 0.2.7) 64 bit drivers to work with a Hori FS-EX2 flight stick for airplane simulation, there is a line that needs to be added into the .ini file for the driver to recognize that is is supposed to be used.

Go into the C:\Program Files (x86)\XBCD\Driver folder and open the xbcd.inf with notepad.

There are 2 occurrences of the ;Xbox Controllers list below.

;Wired Controllers
;Xbox Controllers
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_044F&PID_0F07 ; Thrustmaster Controller
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0202 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0285 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller S
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0287 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller S
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0289 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller S

Add in the first line below ;Xbox Controllers shown below in both instances of this list:

;Wired Controllers
;Xbox Controllers
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_24C6&PID_5504 ; HORI EX2 Flight Stick
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_044F&PID_0F07 ; Thrustmaster Controller
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0202 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0285 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller S
%XBCD.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_0287 ; Microsoft Xbox Controller S

Then plug in the controller, in Device Manager find the flight stick and in it's properties/driver tab update the driver and install from a specific location and point this at the C:\Program Files (x86)\XBCD\Driver folder. That should load the driver for use with the flight stick. Then you can map the buttons and sliders using the XBCD Setup Utility as per normal.

Was very happy when I got this working!
