Windows 7: Xpadder doesn't work

06 Jan 2009   #1

Main: Ubuntu / HTPC: Windows 7
Xpadder doesn't work

Tried compat modes, run as admin. you get an error saying you have an unknown version of windows and only 2000, xp, 2003 srv and vista are supported.

xpadder is critical in my HTPC for the ease of controller setup amongst the dif emus.

anyone have any idea how to get it to work? or a similar program that works?

xpadder maps joystick inputs to keys.

Thanks! just signed up after installing Win7

Windows 7 64-bit


thanks worked for me! you dont have to run from your desktop though. as long as you dont run from folder C:\Program Files (x86). Youre also gonna have to change the compatability every time you move the program to a different place.
