"This software and drivers are still in a..."This software and drivers are still in a beta phase but are necessary for your Microsoft input devices to work properly under Windows 7.
The download and installation process can take up to 30 minutes so you should schedule accordingly.
IMPORTANT Always install the software using the Setup program instead of installing the drivers directly. This download and installation process will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and you will not be prompted for an action for several minutes. Do not click "Install" more than once.
Microsoft is not aware of any issues for Windows 7 and Xbox 360 controllers.
Before installing version 1.0 of Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Driver Beta for Windows make sure this is the latest version available and that it works with your current operating system and device model. If the driver contains release notes ("readme" files) proceed with reading them first. Second recommended step is creating a restore point to help you later on in case you install the wrong device driver. Note that some drivers will work instantly after installing them, but others will require a system restart in order to function properly.
As an alternative, you can simplify the process of installing the latest versions for your drivers by using a program to scan all your drivers and compare them with the latest available versions from the manufacturers. We recommend Driver Scanner from Uniblue for such a task. Download it and run a free driver scan here.
