Although the manufacturer does not officially support Windows PC, you do not need to follow any special instructions on Windows 10.

Simply plug the Rock Candy controller into your USB port. The first time you do this, Windows 10 will detect and configure it automatically. Every time thereafter, it will simply be detected and ready to use.

On Windows 7 and earlier versions of Windows, you can use Device Manager to help troubleshoot problems with your controller, see whether the correct items are listed, and to make sure there are no conflicts.

  2. On the Hardware tab, select Device Manager.
  3. When the controller is successfully installed, you see three entries in Device Manager. There should be two entries under Human Interface Devices:

    • USB Human Interface Device
    Additionally, there should be a third entry in under Microsoft Common Controller for Windows Class:
    • Xbox 360 Controller for Windows
  4. If you see yellow exclamation points next to any of these entries, there's a problem with the installation. If there's a problem for either of the entries under Human Interface Devices, first verify that the problem is caused by the controller by unplugging it. If a hardware conflict with the controller was causing the problem, the yellow exclamation point will no longer appear after the controller is unplugged.
