Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller Driver v1.2 for Windows XP
Microsoft Xbox 360 Accessories software works with both wired and wireless game controllers. The accessory status indicator shows the battery status (for wireless devices) and the assigned quadrants of the connected controllers.
With this software and a compatible wireless receiver, you can use various Xbox 360 accessories such as wired and wireless game controllers, wired and wireless headsets, and wireless wheels for gaming on your computer. If you followed the setup instructions on the installation CD, you should be ready to use your device.
When you connect a controller to your computer, it is assigned a specific quadrant that glows green to indicate the controller's number and position. Each subsequent controller (up to four) connected to your computer is assigned an additional quadrant.
To view your controller quadrant and battery status on the screen, press the Xbox Guide button.
Important: Always install the software using the Setup program instead of installing the drivers directly.
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.
