Microsoft hasn't released Windows driver for the Xbox One controller but still you can use the controller on your Windows PC for playing games, thanks to a YouTube user Lucas Assis. The solution uses a combination of a generic USB driver, a free controller emulating software, libusb to allows applications to access USB devices and Lucas Assis's application.


Download the package from here and follow these steps:

  1. Open your device manager and plug in your Xbox One controller
  2. Install the WinUSB device driver (a Windows driver)
  3. Install vJoy
  4. Open vJoy and use it to detect the controllers
  5. Install libusb, launch its filter installer wizard and use it to install the two WinUSB devices that are your controllers.
  6. Open Assis’ app.
  7.  Install XPadder or x360ce (included in the download) to make it work with games.

Why no official PC drivers yet from Microsoft?

This is great, but I think I'll just wait until official support arrives for wireless. As much as I prefer my one's controller to my 360 now.
