I'm trying to get my PS3 controller to work with my PC and I found a diver that lets me do it, but I can't install the driver becasue the system says that an old one is already installed. Problem is, I have no idea how to uninstall LubUSB drivers or where to even find them.
The whole process for getting this to work on XP is here.
By the way I'm doing this on Vista 32bit (and another system that uses XP). Found a guide especially for that.
64 bit is not supported, you have to hope that both libusb and the sixaxis loaded get updated (which isn’t looking likely)
32 bit there is a workaround, here’s how to do it:
1- download the package (http://dl.qj.net/SIXAXIS-driver-for-...1679/catid/518
2- unpackage the files to somewhere you will keep them.
3- if you have previously installed it, make sure you delete the files C:\Windows\System32\libusb0.dll and C:\Windows\System32\drivers\libusb0.sys. This applies even if you uninstalled it already.
4- right click the installer (libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.10.1.exe), go to the compatibility tab, and choose XP SP2 compatibility.
5- right click the installer and run it as administrator.
I got about this far and got a message saying "An old version of LibUSB-Win32 is already installed"
6- when the installer is done you can plug your controller in
7- run ps2sixaxis_en.exe
8- press the PS button a few times, and it should now work.
* You have to run ps2sixaxis_en.exe every time windows starts (I just put a shortcut to it in my start menu -> startup)
* Remember that if your PS3 is nearby you have to turn it off at the switch or wall
* I read that some games will recognise the left stick as a joystick, although I haven’t tried it out yet
* Don’t use the latest libusb, it doesn’t work with ps2sixaxis_en.exe and it gives you a BSOD every time you shutdown.
