How To Uninstall Xbox 360 Controller Driver Pc

However, I cannot seem to permanently uninstall the Xbox 360 driver software. Everytime I reinsert the controller, Windows automatically reinstalls the software. (I even deleted the original executable for Microsoft's driver software, but it still somehow reinstalls itself.). Hold the Guide button down on the controller to turn it on. Hold the Pairing button on the controller for three seconds until the Guide button flashes. Right click on the Bluetooth icon in your system tray and click 'Add a Bluetooth Device.' Click 'Add Bluetooth or other Device' and select Bluetooth. Click 'Xbox Wireless Controller.'

How can you uninstall it?

I have both the Xbox 360 and One controller and although the X360 is the wireless one with the USB cable, it doesn´t detect it so decided to go with the One that works flawlessly.


Xbox 360 Controller Driver For Pc

Just a note, unlike the Xbox One controller, plugging the play and charge kit into an Xbox 360 controller does not turn it into a wired controller. It is still a wireless controller and requires a wireless dongle to work. The beta version of this driver includes both Xbox One controller support and a built in uninstaller. You can check that out here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14890209/Install360Controller0.15Preview7.pkg

Thanks for the fast reply.

As I already have 'Xone Controller', which one do you recommend me to use it?

Also, I am trying to find the uninstaller but can´t find it..

Use this driver. Virtual music composer free download. It has more features than mine.

To uninstall 'Xone-OSX' there is an uninstall.command included in the downloaded dmg. If you no longer have it, download the latest version and run the uninstaller from there. As for the 360Controller, simply install the new version over the old version. No uninstall required.

Once the new version is installed, the uninstall button for that driver is available in the bottom left hand corner of the advanced tab.

Got it thanks!

Works great for OpenEmu.

Reinstall Xbox 360 Controller Driver

Hi i'm having issues with the builtin uninstaller on Install360Controller0.15Preview7 . Any advice?

commented Jul 22, 2015

@jonathanhammond disconnect your controller from your computer, restart, and then try again, it should work!

commented Jul 22, 2015

BTW, I have noticed that I am able to use the joy sticks on menus but I can´t use them outside of them while the D Pad works flawlessly on both cases.

I was able to replicate this issue using both Xone Controller and Xbox 360 Controler

there were issues in the uninstaller for latest Yosemite (10.10.4) And probably El Captain.
Fixed it in 64be136

please check the latest version
