    I just got an Oculus Rift and when it comes to the part where I'm supposed to install my Xbox One controller, it fails. I researched it, and Microsoft support says the drivers come packed with Windows 10 so it should auto-install. The problem is I'm using Windows 7.

    I have not found any drivers online that will make my wireless adapter work. I've also tried using a USB cable to go direct, but the drivers I found online did not work either. The ones at Microsoft's support page provided by Major Nelson seemingly are dead links now, and the backup I found at Techspot (file name: xb1usb.11059.0.140526x64.msi) did not work either. It still gives me the "failed to install" Windows error when connecting.

    Someone please help as Oculus is somewhat useless without a controller for games!

    You've answered your own question in your first paragraph & is the reason it will never work,your option is upgrade to 10 or buy a 360 controller
