Release notes:

This software and drivers are still in a beta phase but are necessary for your Microsoft input devices to work properly under Windows 7. We suggest you download the latest final version of the Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller Driver 32-bit or 64-bit instead of this beta release.

Installation Notes

The download and installation process can take up to 30 minutes so you should schedule accordingly.

IMPORTANT Always install the software using the Setup program instead of installing the drivers directly. This download and installation process will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and you will not be prompted for an action for several minutes. Do not click "Install" more than once.

Known Issues

Microsoft is not aware of any issues for Windows 7 and Xbox 360 controllers.

Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
