I got the driver working on Win7 64 without any trouble. Just install, restart and enjoy it.
edit: forgot to mention it's a cable made for windows gamepad.
Windows XP version since the only tester so far (ddxcb) had success with it.
By the way, your 0x000000c9 code looks like it may indicate that you still have Driver Verifier running. I have not successfully run without bugcheck crashes unless I have driver verifier turned off or set to "Miscellaneous checks". If you have used Driver Verifier previously on that laptop, you might be able to run verifier.exe in normal mode, use the bottom option, and turn off all the checkboxes to prevent the crashes. Otherwise, just go ahead and delete the drivers and virtual devices from device manager to prevent them from causing problems in the future (you don't need to reinstall anything).
Getting it totally crash-free with Driver Verifier checks turned on is going to be a pretty big effort next year, I'm guessing, but maybe some experts can give me advice once the source code is there. :P The bad part is that I don't think that the driver verifier errors are actually the cause of the data problems you were seeing, but I guess I'm not sure.
Awesome! I got it working this time!
For some reason even though the default drivers for the controller were working, it still wasn't showing up device manager. I did a hardware scan and it popped up. I tried the install again and ran the control .exe and it's working perfectly!
Great job, Blizzard!
That's great to hear, you two. Of course, we still have the driver signing thing, so you either have to press F8 when you boot, or use the test mode (with the watermark or whatever).
I'm sure there are still problems to figure out. Maybe supporer will have more luck with his other computer.
A little off topic, but I noticed that when running windows in test mode on my computer I don't get the watermark, but on my wife's laptop she gets it. We're both running Windows 7 64-bit. However I'm running ultimate and she's running home (I think).
The chatpad drivers work on both of our computers though. I just installed it on hers.
@GAF there is the problem with the multi keyboard drivers. they all uninstall but one and cant find a way to remove it. but then again its my server pc so yea xD
Once the HID Keyboard Device entries are gone, you should be able to right click and uninstall the original device.
It looks like the news has spread through some blogs/forums by now. There have been 70 downloads of the Windows 7 version alone, yet I only have confirmation from 3-4 people who got any version working, and 1-2 who did not. If it works for you, or even if it doesn't, feel free to drop me a PM or an email so I know if it's failing horribly or what. xD
