I would like to first say that I love the controller, its great. Anywho, I have the version that didnt come with the cd with the software on it. I did get the controllers drivers that you can download off of microsoft's website. I ran joy.cpl and saw that the controller is working fine. I went and messed around with it in some halo, and then came back to joy.cpl to recalibrate it again. But for some reason whenever I try and click or run joy.cpl my mouse will make the hour glass symoble for a second then stops as if to try and load the .cpl but cant and gives up. I can not bring up the joy.cpl configuration box. For those that dont know, joy.cpl is the joystick configuration utility in "control panel" Thanks. P.S. I did do a system restore and that allowed me to run joy.cpl again but once I install the controllers drivers and plug in the controller I cant run joy.cpl anymore. EDIT: Well to be a bit more clear, I can run joy.cpl whenever the controller is unplugged. But the instant I plug in the controller, joy.cpl closes and wont start again untill I unplug the controller. Now once I do get this done, How would I get it setup to work with counter strike?
