简介

If you purchased a Xbox Wireless Receiver for Windows and are wondering how to use it in Windows 8.x, this guide will show you how to install the drivers. Since Microsoft is aggressively pushing Windows 10 (despite many users not wanting it or waiting), problems like this will come up.

Since Microsoft wants to make this as hard as possible for Windows 8.x users, this guide will show you how to manually install the driver and get it working. IMPORTANT: While the screenshots show Windows 7, it is no longer supported as of 1/14/2020.

*WARNING: WINDOWS 7 IS END OF LIFE! I WILL NO LONGER SUPPORT WINDOWS 7. This procedure will work, but is entirely unsupported going forward.

Guide notes

  • In most cases, the receiver will pick up the driver correctly, but needs encouragement. However, I have included manual installation instructions for situations where this does not happen.
  • Windows 10 users: Refer to the Windows 10 guide.
  1. Plug the Xbox Wireless Receiver into your PC. Note: before ging further into this guide, see if the driver installs automatically. Plug the Xbox Wireless Receiver into your PC. Note: before ging further into this guide, see if the driver installs automatically.

  2. Try this method first. Mircrosoft has pulled the driver for public download. Before opening Device Manager, see if it installs automatically. If this does not work, the driver will need to be installed manually.

I assume this does not work with the new version of the dongle

The small one only works in Windows 10. The fat one works in 7/8.x and 10. There is a dedicated W10 guide with a warning related to drivers.

My dongle has version 1713 printed on it (tiny font) and it worked on W7. Some details here

Thank you. It's a shame. Such intentional and shady practices from Microsoft, blockade on a driver. You seem to really know your stuff… do you know if the Windows 10 dongle has features the old one does not? Since I don't even need to google it to know the old dongle is no longer for sale outside of second-hand.

Not that I'm aware of.

I can still find the old one new so it's available. I doubt it's discontinued.
