    Hello all, I just bought an Xbox One S controller, and wanted to connect it to my win 7 pc. I have the driver for Xbox One controllers for windows 7 that was hidden somewhere, and my wired one works fine. I tried connecting the s controller through blue tooth, and it connects fine, but when installing the drivers, it cannot find one for "Bluetooth Peripheral Device". Any idea where I could find a driver to support the Bluetooth connection? I know I could upgrade to win 10, but I really don't want to yet. Any ideas?

    You need to go into devices and printers, find the controller, and force it to use that driver manually (at least, if it works the same for XBox controllers as it does for Wii Remotes)

    That didn't work, but I found a brokenish fix. IF you install toshiba's Bluetooth drivers, it connects fine, but it is recognized as a dinput controller, so the button mapping is off and no xinput features work. Does anyone know how to force a dinput controller to use xinput drivers?
