    chatpad filter 2 error

    Hello I've been trying extremely hard lately to get the chatpad to work with a wired non-made-for-windows controller to no avail. I get this error message after running chatpad control through an administrator opened command promp

    *****
    Chatpad control utility version 0.1a started.
    *****
    Please wait...

    Control utility started.
    Opening chatpad filter driver.
    Couldn't open chatpad filter: 2
    Failed to open connection to XBox 360 controller.
    Done. The exit status is -1.

    Lots of people seem to be having this same problem, but some of them got it to work (like blackfox42 on this thread on page 60). If anyone could help me at all it would be greatly appreciated. I've tried it with and without the windows drivers for the controller. Name:  device chatpad1.bmp

    It's a shame that it seems as if no-one is working on this anymore. i would have loved to play Minecraft with my Xbox controller on my 70 inch TV. Oh well. Back to using my mouse and keyboard...

    Wow, yes please. I hope a programming Guru tackles this request at some point. I guess I should put some money in the pool!
    I'd love to have keyboard support via xbox conroller on my windows 7 media center system. (comfy on the couch in the living room)

    TUTORIAL WORKS 100%!!! A user called Kenneth did this. Found it in the issue section!

    JUST BEFORE DOING THIS... DELETE ALL THE DRIVERS MANUALLY IN THE DEVICE MANAGER... RIGHTMOUSE (DELETE DRIVER -> UNINSTALL? YES in the checkbox)

    I HAD THE SAME PROBS AS YOU AND NOW IT'S WORKING!!!

    KENNETH:
    Heres what i did i was having the same problem and i solved it heres how. 1.I unplugged the controller 2.uninstalled all the chatpad drivers 3.plugged the controller in one of my pc's back usb ports 4.went to device manager and updated my normal controller drivers( if the controller updated the drivers automatically its best to check but you should be ok) 5.restart and do the f8 driver check disable 6.install AMD64 chatpad drivers and wait for it to finish(if you get the pop ups asking about drivers click install anyway) 7.once the drivers have installed restart the pc and do the f8 disable again 8. now unplug the controller and plug it right back into the same usb port 9.run the normal win7 amd64 test 3.exe and the command prompt should open and stay open 10.once the command prompt finishes it will be open so press a couple buttons to see if they light up this works 100% of the time for me although it took me awhile to figure it out also im on win7 64bit too if it doesnt work retrace your steps because i just typed this entire message from my chatpad hope this helps good luck

    Has there been any progress on the wireless drivers?
    It's sad to come back almost every week to see posts that are months apart when this looked so promising =/.
    Is there anyway we can get this thread back in full force? I'm dying of anticipation!
    It seems that the driver developer has basically given up after he got a wireless receiver and controller, maybe we could raise money and contact him?
    I really would love to see the passionate progress that happened when the thread was in it's prime.
