I’m trying to get my Hori Fighting Stick EX to work on Vista 64-bit and could use a little help if anyone has been able to get it to work. I read the instructions at http://xbcd360guide.50webs.com/download.html for Vista64 and did everything that it says in the readme below.
After I copy the xbcd.sys and xbcd.inf files to the right locations, I go to device manager and update the driver on the 360 controller. I am able to see the XBCD 360 driver in the list, but when I try to install it I get an error saying the driver could not be installed.
According to the webpage above it says to run the installer instead at the point where I copy the xbcd.sys and .inf files which I also tried, but that doesn’t work either.
Has anyone been able to successfully get their EX2 to work on Vista 64? Thanks.
You first need to open a Command Prompt window in Administrator mode.
- Click Start, All Programs, Accessories.
- Right click on the Command Prompt program and choose “Run as administrator”.
Next, you need to alter the Boot Configuration Data store to disable signed
- Type the following into the command prompt EXACTLY (yes, that is two D’s)
bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
Reboot your computer. You can now follow the standard procedure to install
the XBCD360 drivers.
Put xbcd.sys into:
Put xbcd.inf into:
Start the Device Manager, right click the XBox360 controller, and choose
Update Software Driver
Browse for the driver manually, then say that you want to choose from a list.
Pick the XBCD360 driver. It should be at the very bottom of the list.
