I’ve been having this issue for a while now. The Game Controllers program in my Control panel does do anything. I double click it the hour glass comes up, then nothing. This doesn’t seem to prevent me from using controllers in games, but it’s getting really annoying since I have to plug into another computer to check button functionality. Also I don’t know just what number controller each controller/stick I plug in is being assigned.
There seems to be very little about this online. I’ve tried uninstalling other usb devices on my system, and I still get nothing. Any ideas? I’m certainly not reinstalling my entire OS.
