Introduction

If you purchased an original Xbox Wireless Receiver for Windows and are having issues using it in Win10, this guide will show you how to install the driver manually if it is not automatically picked up.

While the need for this method is less frequent in Win10, it still happens from time to time.

ADVANCE EOL HEADS UP: On 1/1/2023, this guide will be progressively phased out. On 1/1/2024, I will no longer support users with driver install issues, but will correct major mistakes. On 10/1/2025, I will consider this guide “Obsolete” (Win10 EOL: 10/14/2025).

NOTE: While this guide will be obsolete on 10/1/2025, I will keep it up as long as I reasonably can but will consider it unsupported. If there are major issues that cause major breakdowns, I may pull the guide at this point.

Guide notes

  • In most cases, Windows 10 will “just work". If it does not automatically pick up and install the driver, manual installation may be required. This improved compatibility is a result of Microsoft considering Xbox accessory compatibility in Windows 10.
  • Windows 8.x users: Refer to the Windows 7/8.x guide. There are a few steps unique to Windows 10 which required modifications, so this guide is tailored around 10 exclusively.
  • NOTE: I did not get a initial install prompt, and do not know how to re-trigger it. As I used this laptop as a test it will not be visible. I do not know how to trigger the initial installation window manually.
  • I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS ADAPTER IN WINDOWS 11 YET. IT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK.

Hi Nick,

This is a great guide. It seems to be a common issue and many people have offered similar solutions, but this one is the clearest and most well-explained.

However, it didn’t work for me - and from comments I’ve seen around, I know I’m not the only one. I wonder if you have any thoughts on this?

At the end of Step 3 (“Click Next and install the driver”), the window flashes to something like “Searching location…” for less than a second and then I get:

Windows was unable to install your XBOX ACC

Windows could not find drivers for your device.

If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit their website and check the support section for downloadable drivers.

I’m using Win 10 64-bit, fully updated.

I’ve tried the other drivers on the Update Catalog with the same result.

Is it possible to manually force the drivers to be installed?

Thanks,

Eryn

You can actually download the driver manually to force the installation. To force the installation, you will need this driver for Win10: Microsoft driver update for Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows (18.31.1.43)

If the issue is installation, you need to unzip the folder and put the files in a normal folder. The .cab folder from the download site doesn’t work as-is. I should have clarified this, but it’s corrected.

Thanks, but that wasn’t my issue.

I figured out that you can use the “Have disk…” option in the driver update dialog to force the install, but that still didn’t fix it - Device Manager correctly identified the device as “Xbox Wireless Adapter”, but it showed error code 10 and still failed to work.

What actually fixed it was a NEWER, entirely different (and deceptively named) driver in the Update Catalog.

I really hope this helps anyone else out there with the same issues as me.

I did it on a W10 Build 1708 system with deferred updates and the throttled internet connection option enabled. I think 1708 is the Anniversary update, so there’s a chance that system had an older build at the time.

Nick -

Yeah, that makes sense.

I also just realised that your guide is for the original Wireless Adapter - whereas I’ve got the new (smaller) one. Maybe add a note that owners of the newer adapter will also need the newer driver?

None of the other guides I’ve seen out there include this info either, and yours is still the easiest to follow… so you’re still winning :)
