Question Info

Finally, it works with rumble ! I had the previous drivers without rumble installed. Here is what I did :

1. Open your Device Manager

2. Right click on the actual "Xbox One Wireless Adapter" and select "uninstall". On the next panel check the box "Delete the installed driver".

3. Unplug/replug the Adapter. It will appear as "XBOX ACC".

4. Right click on it, Select "Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software"

5. Windows will (finally) find the lastest drivers, 20.x

Now you can launch a game, rumble and all functions work.
