Need help from software veteran or programmer

Alright so I have a 64-bit version of Windows 7. There is this old video game for the xbox called Steel Battallion that came with a massive controller. There is a driver to get that controller to work with a pc, but it is 32-bit.

Here is the driver.

It's under the download section. And here is the forum for this driver.

As you can see, there are a lot of people on the forum that have 64-bit windows that would like to use the driver.

Does anyone know of a workaround or if there is a simple way to edit the driver to work with 64-bit windows? I just built a new pc and it would be AWESOME to get this controller to work. Here is a picture of the controller itself.

Now how cool is that :)

  1. Yes yes yes, that is AWESOME!!!!

    I am no software developer, but if you are looking at using that controller, have you not just plugged it in to see what Windows 7 does with it!

    I would consider dual booting 32bit to use controller whilst waiting for 64bit driver, surely if there are many of these in the wild someone will make a driver.

    Also look as if that forum is a little dead now, soz

    32 bit Drivers do not, and will not, run on 64 bit. You would have to get the source code and recompile, or rewrite from scratch.
  3. ^That's what I was afraid of. I will just have to wait until someone makes a new driver. It's too bad really, I already bought the adapter to plug it into my computer.

    I'm actually out of country right now, so I can't exactly plug it in but I will definitely try it and see what happens. There is a Crysis mod called Mechwarrior: Living Legends, and I really wanted to try this controller out on that mod. I know people are doing it, but they are also running 32-bit OS's.

    There is also Mechwarrior4 for free now thanks to Microsoft.

    Oh well, guess I can hope. I really wanted to find a use for that mammoth of a controller.
