    I have now completed a program for connecting a Wii U Pro Controller to Windows with help from Daku93.

    Just add your Pro Controller in the Windows Bluetooth Manager, don't use a PIN, then start the application.

    Newest version:
    Download Version 1.6 here
    Older versions:
    Download Version 1.5 here
    Download Version 1.4 here
    Download Version 1.3 here
    Download Version 1.2 here
    Download Version 1.1 here
    Download Version 1.0 here

    All buttons are mappable, both analogs can act as the D-Pad or YBAX Buttons.
    Supports LEDs / Rumble control. Displays Battery, USB, And Analog status.

    Default button mappings are:
    Start-Enter
    Select-Backspace
    Home-ESC
    D-Up-Up
    D-Left-Left
    D-Down-Down
    D-Right-Right
    Y-A
    B-Z
    A-X
    X-S
    L-Q
    R-W
    ZL-R
    ZR-F
    LH-J
    RH-K

    Andreas kemp has created this awesome tutorial for using this application.

    Wait, what does this do? Like, to be honest, I only want to connect the controller to the PC to play games, possible or not?

    Wonderful! I'll try it at once!


    It maps the buttons to your keyboard. So, yes.

    Unfortunately, it does not appear to be working. The only thing that works for me is the rumble.
    Oh, and what are the checkboxes with buttons good for? I tried checking and unchecking them with no different results.

    It does not work using the default Windows bluetooth stack, sadly. You need to follow those instructions to get the Pro Controller working. http://www.smoothboard.net/wiiremoteplus/
    (Yes, they are about connecting a normal Remote+ but it also works for the Pro Controller)

    What I'm currently working on, is getting the Pro controller to be recognized as a XBox Gamepad, so you can also use the analogs as analogs and not just as buttons. I hope to have something finished as soon as next week, but I can't promise anything since I'm not very experienced in writing C++ Code which I need to do to accomplish this...

    Ah, thanks, I will try that.
    EDIT: Works great! Thank you for your good work!

    If it wouldn't be too much trouble do you think either of you could make it possible to move the mouse with one of the analog sticks in the meantime? (Preferably the right one or having a check box for which)

    EDIT: Oh, and one more thing after that to make this even more complete if you guys have the time.
    Let the other analog stick map to normal keys (instead of the same as the D-Pad or XYAB buttons).

    Can we make xpadder recognize this and remap it? Or make a parallel port?
    If that's so, i'd love to see the analog sensitivity adressed.

    edit:
    Isn't the USB for charging only?

    Why did you map it to the keyboard?
    Can't you make Windows recognize it as universal joypad?

    I can't get the Toshiba bluetooth stack installed. I have a MacBook Pro running Windows 7, and I followed the instructions from that Smoothboard page, but the installation doesn't work since it asks me to plug in the bluetooth adapter to proceed, and mine is built-in.

    Is there any way to get this to work using the built-in bluetooth?

    I'm not very knowledged in this kind of area, but you could try just disabling the bluetooth card - no uninstalling - and then when prompted to plug it in, activate it again.

    it seems to be an interesting project. I believe once you finish working with the analog stick , your next goal will be to get the screen acting as a clone of the monitor of the PC :)

    I know he hasn't released the source code exactly for a simple port to Wii homebrew but he has LOTS of infor in the "Wii U Pro Controller Info.txt" file in the download that someone with enough technical knowledge might be able to utilize create a library for it or add it to the existing libs.

    Getting that info on WiiUBrew would be a good start, though.

    If all it does it bind it to your keyboard what we really need is to get these findings over to the motioninjoy guy and have him integrate it into his program.
