I downloaded the windows 7 software in 64 bit so I could use my controller on my windows 8. Windows 8 came with this pc.
One ambassador said I needed to run the software in compatibility mode. I right clicked on properties and I could not find compatibility mode. The ambassador left the chat. I then talked to a Xbox support person. That person said I needed to call the hotline so Microsoft could check my OS. However, the hotline did not work for me. When I would repeat my answers the hotline kept repeating itself.
I also used START, RUN, and typed in joy.cpl. However, my controller was not listed. When I push on my Xbox 360 controller it just constantly flashes as if trying to find the xbox 360 console.
Thanks you for any help you can give me.
