    Alright, That is quite a rare problem, The installer does detect it but you cannot use it? Or did i understand that wrong?.

    Edit: Microsoft said that you can try Start, type joy.cpl, and hit enter to test your controller\

    controller installed fine and said is ready to use
    i then went to the start menu and opened xbox accseories
    then i pressed the xbox guide key on the controller to turn it on
    it all four lights on the controller started to flash like it is trying to conect
    (and the were no lights pesent on the xbox accsesories status bar program running on my pc to symbolise a connection)
    i then went to the start menu and typed joy.cpl to see if i could configure the controller and it was not present there
    but if i go to control panel,devices and printers my xbox controller is there
    labeled as xbox wireless controller via play and charge kit
    and says that the device is working but i can asure u it isnt

    Don't hurry I know exactly how this can be fixed!

    While I do not have a 360 controller hooked up to my pc, I have a PS3 controller instead.

    Whatever you have to connect the 360 controller to your pc, just get rid of it. Google: "MotionInJoy Gamepad tool" (You may have to reset your windows 7 to "test mode" or that just implies to my version. Idk.)

    Once intalled it has a game mode. Make sure BEFORE you start the game it is set to "Xbox 360 Controller Emulator".

    I use a USB cable, i dunno if the 360 uses it as well or just a dongle. Anyway, each time you turn on your pc, the software sends a vibration test to the controller. You should see and hear it vibrate meaning it's working. Prior to playing your game make sure that the settings is on 360 mode. If you have it under other modes it can do wierd things.

    Enjoy!

    BTW: tell me if this works for you.

    @Epexion this is not a rare problem, ive seen loads of posts like these on the net with hundreds of people with the same problem (including me)

    the main problem for me is when i plug in my Xbox360 controller
    an goto device manger an goto Human interface devices,
    HID-compliant game controller is missing!

    yet if i plug in an incompatible controller "HID-compliant game controller" appears

    i am also using Windows 7 32bit

    (dont bother asking Microsoft as they wont respond)
    Xbox 360 Accessories Software 1.2 32-bit for Windows 7 download simply does not work!
    Using windows update (as Cnet suggests does not work)
    swapping Usb ports does not work

    You know what's odd?

    I have Windows 7 And the VERY same pc game. Only thing I am running Windows 7 under 64bit.

    This may sound like a dumb question but how is the 360 controller connected to the pc? Is it through a USB wire like my ps3 controller? (never touched an xbox before.)

    I'm surprised motioninjoy did not work for you.

    If you go to the safety removal by the clock and select "open device..."

    I get the HID-Compliant game controller. But when I installed motioninjoy it added a second device. Same exact icon but now it says "Playstation(R) 3 controller" that was done automatically by motioninjoy.

    Now back over to motioninjoy software the profile options, xbox 360 as being selected.

    Motioninjoy should put another device there besides the reg. hid-compliant.

    When I installed motioninjoy, that is what it did after I connected the controller. Then I had to change profiles.

    You DO have to let motioninjoy start with your pc. Also, due to this microsoft certified thing, you may need to put your computer in to test mode. But I'm sure test mode is a 64bit issue.

    TRY THIS:
    right click on the game controller and make sure it says "Moltioninjoy virtual game controller" IF it is not there, that is why motioninjoy is not working. I bet whatever you had before is conflicting.
