Solved Xpadder not finding Xbox 360 controller

Microsoft Xbox 360 wired controller

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1 64-bit, Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N475 @ 1.83GHz 1.83GHz 1.00GB RAM
I am trying to use my Xbox 360 Wired Controller I recently got from Microsoft to play Halo: CE on my computer.

I updated the drivers for the controller using the software disc included with the controller and I also attempted to update the drivers through windows device manager, and it said that the drivers were up to date.

The controller is recognized by Windows in Device Manager, the light on the controller is on, the Windows pop-up bubble shows when I plug it in, and I can press the XBOX button to get that little "Click to get help" thing to show up.

When I try to use the controller in Halo, the GamePad section is grayed out and not clickable. As I want to use the controller for other games as well, I thought that I would just a program like Xpadder to simplify this.

When I start Xpadder though, it will show that it is looking for a device, but it will never find one. I have attempted using many other similar programs including Joy2Key, ControlMK, GameCtrl and Joy to Mouse, but none of them that I have tried show any device that I can use. For some reason, none of them recognize that I have a working and Windows-recognized Xbox 360 Wired Controller plugged into the computer.

Any help with what I might do would be greatly appreciated.

✔ Best Answer
Though I haven't been able to find a way to get this to work on my Windows 7 machine, my Xbox controller and Xpadder work perfectly on XP.
