Hello, I am currently having numerous problems getting this to work.

first, after connecting the controller once, I cannot reconnect it unless i sync it with my wii u again and then re sync with my laptop

also, when the controller is actually connected, there is constant input even if I am not pressing anything. I went to DesMuMe and configured hotkeys to see what was going on and the constant input is #255. don't really know what to do.

For the constant input thing, try re-calibrating the controller.

Can't get Toshiba Stack to find the controller. Both the Bluetooth adapter and pro controller are blinking when i search for devices, but nothing. "Unable to detect remote device".

I'm afraid to inform you all that x360ce will never fully work with vjoy (and thus the wii-u pad pro)

We are able to bind the GUID, but the pad pro's vid/pid is not presented to the wrapper which prevents us from rewriting the string presented to the game in order to trick it into believing it is run on an actual xbox 360 compatible device.

Games that support both DInput and XInput check the device string to see if IG_ is present, if it is it prevents the device associated from enumerating within the game as a Dinput device - Some of you may have noticed that some games get double input if HookCOM is not set, this is basically what you would expect to see in this case, though some titles won't enumerate xinput at all if IG_ is not present, and vibration fails to work in other cases.

You'll have to wait for the vjoy dev to implement native xinput support.

You can go into the registry and rename the WUPC as a 360 controller though, which probably changes this.

One of these videos tells how to change the name for it to work for x360ce.

Okay so I almost synced my WUPC to my pc, but it won't get through becuase I need a password. Any idea what the password might be?

Edit: I just clicked next :P sorry for just plain stupid post

Edit 2: okay now it won't respond. all four led lights are blinking, but it says it is Connected. What now?

Can't get Toshiba Stack to find the controller. Both the Bluetooth adapter and pro controller are blinking when i search for devices, but nothing. "Unable to detect remote device".

I'm having that very same issue. The bluetooth stack won't find WUPC, though it finds and successfully connects to my Wiiremotes.
I'm hitting the sync button, and I've also tried holding it through the software's detection.
I'm also pretty sure the controller is a first party one. At least it is supposed to be.
The only issue is that I don't have a Wii U console. Could that be the case?

how i got my wiiupro working with toshiba bluetooth stack (win7 x64):
1. uninstall toshiba bluetooth stack
2. install default bluetooth drivers (a simple reboot should work)
3. search "add a device" in the start menu
4. hit the red sync button, follow instructions on screen (if the controller isn't detected, your bluetooth adapter is likely incompatible, or bluetooth is set up incorrectly)
5. install toshiba stack
6. sync again via the toshiba bluetooth manager (click new connection, then red sync button, follow instructions)
7. after this is set up, i must simply double click the controller in the toshiba any time i reboot and then tap buttons on the controller while the app attempts to connect (no more red sync button), then start my game.


notes: make sure you are using the 32-bit version (x86) of any program you want to use Deku93's modded x360ce drivers provided on pg 19 of this thread. They won't work in 64-bit apps. I've tested this in dolphin, ppsspp, pcsx2, tomb raider, and tomb raider anniversary with success.

QUESTION for Daku93: any plans to patch the 64 bit versions of x360ce in this way? I don't know why others are spending so much time on complicated workarounds when you've already got the simplest solution working easy peasy.

Agreed. Really all it needs is to be able to swap the XABY buttons and it'd be perfect.

I can't make the wii u pro controller connect to my pc, all four led lights are blinking but the program won't respond, it say it is connected so I don't think the connection is the problem here. I can't figure out whats wrong as everything should work.

I have a windows 8 pc and I am using the installed bluetooth software that came with my pc (which is the bluetooth settings you find in windows 8)
I tried using a bluetooth dongle but toshiba didn't recognize the dongle so I just deleted the Toshiba bluetooth stack, and since it said it was connected with my pc when I used the bluetooth on my win 8 I assumed it was all right to use it this way.

any one can think what I do wrong here? I am using a legit wii U pro controller.

For the program to work you have to get the Toshiba Stack to work. If editing the .inf file does not get it
to recognise your dongle then the dongle might not be compatible with the Toshiba Stack.

I set up the controller correctly. Wii U pro app works, xbox 360ce works but in games the buttons are all over the place or don't work and the right analog just doesnt work. I tried Tomb Raider and sleeping dogs. Castle of illusions, it works fine, buttons and all.
