    Things I've already tried:

    MotionInjoy 0.6003
    Doesn't work, just a white page after long. Trying local doesn't work either nor help.
    MotionInjoy 0.7001
    None of the buttons are clickable on the shitty UI and the application permanently stops working after one time. Doesn't detect the controller either.
    SCP Driver
    Worked, but only on the first time. The analog sticks don't work, either. After that, it stopped working completely.

    So, how do I get it to work? Mind that I have a Vista system, and refuse to upgrade to 7, simply because Vista SP2 is almost the exact same thing as 7, just it looks nicer and runs better as far as I have tested.

    There doesn't seem to be anything to help on Google.

    MotionInjoy is just useless, it worked for me (v0.6001) back in January 2016 on my other Vista computer, but doesn't now.

    I use the drivers from motioninjoy with
    BetterDS3.
    Installed motioninjoy in a virtual machine, grabbed drivers on thier own from install, manually install drivers on main pc and used betterDS3

    I tried BetterDS3 but it kept throwing unhandled exception errors or something like that and wouldn't detect the controller.

    Have you tried completely removing all of the above and reinstalling one, with motioninjoy to properly uninstall use the uninstaller, then open device manager, select show hidden/removed device's. Find motioninjoy entries and Right click and delete and tick the box that says delete driver aswell

    For me, this method worked nicely:
    No need to install motioninjoy, just manually install the drivers and then use BetterDS3. You can emulate an XBOX360 controller perfectly, useful for many games.
    I used that on Windows 7 x64, but it should also work for Vista. Read the comments on the video, they can help too.

    I'm getting a playback error. However, I did watch the video, although I have no 'Devices and Printers' because I don't use Windows 7.

    @Dust2dust I'll start but his commentary is horrible.

    Try disabling the Driver signature enforcement.

    I actually got motioninjoy ds3 tool to work properly and not permanently crash when exiting now, just downloaded a different version from another site. :)
