    lol.
    not sure what i did wrong <.< im sure i uninstalled the previous attempt tho. Anyone else got win 7 and can test this out? I may give it another try on my vista box as well, if i can get it booted up (dads gf smashed the holy hell out of it...no longer has a screen, dvd drive, and half the case is missing lol)
    Thanks for all your help with this. I may try to install Windows 7 myself this weekend on a spare hard drive, since I've had the OS sitting around.

    1. When you uninstalled the previous attempt, did you make sure to manually uninstall the HID keyboard, HID mouse, and chatpad keyboard/mouse devices in device manager? There should be a total of four things you right click and uninstall. If you did, and someone else has the same problem, then I'd say just wait until I get Windows 7 running myself since there's probably something silly I didn't know about Windows 7.

    2. Regarding your XP 32 system, I'm really not sure it's your controller's fault. It looks like it's responding to data like I would expect. If you're still using the old driver, and you have a USB stick, could you maybe copy the latest official Microsoft driver to it, and make sure the chatpad driver is uninstalled, and then go through the install one more time? You can find the latest official driver here: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/do...XP_SP2&lang=en NOTE: It looks like it only works on XP SP2 or later, so if you have a REALLY old XP machine it might not be supported.

    3. If the above doesn't help, the last thing that would be helpful to me on the XP 32 system is for you to kill the chatpad control utility, unplug the 360 controller, and download DebugView: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s...rnals/bb896647 It's a utility that can show debug output. Run it. Go to the capture menu and make sure everything is checked except for "Log Boot". Then, plug the controller in, wait for messages to stop updating, and run the chatpad utility until it crashes. Finally, use the File->Save As options to save a .LOG file, and email it to me (gtschemer, at gmail.com) so I can have a look in case the driver debug output gives any clues.

    Good luck, and get some rest! I think it's about time for me to hit the sack. Merry Christmas everyone. I'm trying to get this working for you all!

    GAFBlizzard: #1 you deserve the cash already (after providing source, ur the first thanks a LOT.

    in the keyboard/mouse inf, there's an error 'CopyFilterDriver' is not a valid inf section ON WINDOWS 7-64BIT, resulting in the 0xe0000217

    this must be replaced with > CopyFunctionDriver, then its working

    [gafblizzard inf code in keyboard]
    ; This was apparently a typo in the hidusbfx2 example. It should be CopyFilterDriver, not CopyFunctionDriver.
    [CopyFilterDriver]
    chatpad_keyboard_kmdf.sys
    [/end gaffbliz code]

    should become:
    [new inf code in keyboard]
    ; This was apparently a typo in the hidusbfx2 example. It should be CopyFilterDriver, not CopyFunctionDriver.
    [CopyFunctionDriver]
    chatpad_keyboard_kmdf.sys
    [/end new code]

    Don't worry, just wait and see. It just acts like an ordinary HID keyboard and mouse, and I'm hoping that won't cause any problems since it's not a cheat program.

    Let me know if you get a chance to try the things I suggested!

    Yay, looks like you're the first person who's been able to use it! The mouse sensitivity with the thumbsticks may not be perfect, so you might want to check the configuration file to adjust it. Do you remember what error you got on Windows 7? Was it 0x00000217, like mutantrabbitjoe got?

    Hey, you're welcome to use another tool for the mouse part! As long as the controller still works and your tool still works I'm happy to hear it. If you haven't done it already, remember you can remap the people button to something like the Windows key, or a modifier to give you more hotkeys, since you're not using it for thumbstick mouse control.

    Thanks for the Windows 7 info. Sounds like I just need to figure out what Windows 7 needs in the INF file that's special so I can get the virtual devices working. I should go ahead and install it later today.

    *edit* If anyone has Windows 7 and tries it, it isn't working now from the reports above, but could you try something to help me out?
    1. Delete (or make a backup if you want to keep) C:\Windows\INF\setupapi.dev.log
    2. Make sure you have all of the HID-compliant keyboard/mouse and chatpad keyboard/mouse devices cleaned up from the last install attempt...sorry, I know I need to finish making that uninstall better.
    3. Try the install again, until it fails, and then quit the install program.
    4. Email me the newly generated C:\Windows\INF\setupapi.dev.log file. Feel free to look through it yourself to see what's in it. It should contain error information so I can figure out what's wrong with the INF installation.
