I am just about at my wit's end with this issue. I own a wired Xbox 360 controller and a Logitech F310 controller (which, while in Xinput mode, functions exactly like an Xbox controller, using the same drivers) and when I plug in either controller, I get the device connection sound from Windows, and then it attempts to install the drivers for a moment, and then gives me an error saying they were not installed correctly. Moving to the device manager, I see under "Microsoft Common Controller for Windows Class" there is "XBOX 360 Controller for Windows" with a yellow-triangle-exclamation-point marker on the icon. Going into the properties, I see "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)" under the device status.
Now, after doing heavy research into how to fix the code 37 including rebooting the computer, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers (both automatically and opting to do it from a list on my computer manually), and deleting the upperfilter and lowerfilters for the device in my registry, I have come to no answer. I am under the impression that something I have installed or plugged in is conflicting with the device for some reason but I've unplugged everything after uninstalling the drivers and it still didn't work when I plugged the controller in.
The common problem people seem to have is fixed by the "Update drivers" and then "Let me choose from a list" And ignoring the warning to manually install them, but whenever I do that I get the windows device connection sound, and this error: "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it." and it says another code 37 below it.
Now, on a side note, the Logitech controller has a switch that can turn it from Xinput mode to Directinput mode, using different drivers, and the Directinput mode seems to work and I can see the drivers in the device manager. For some reason, though, the Xbox controller or the logitech while in Xinput mode just will not work. What am I to do?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
