PS3 Controller on 64 bit windows 2.0!
Insanely old thread, recommending a tool I don't even use myself anymore. Check out the XInput wrapper instead

FOLLOW EVERYTHING EXACTLY OR YOU RUN THE RISK OF DISABLING ALL YOUR USB PORTS! IF THIS HAPPENS, SIMPLY UNINSTALL LIBUSB FROM ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS USING A PS/2 MOUSE/KEYBOARD!

There is now a much easier way to get your PS3 controller working on a 64 bit version of Vista/7:

INSTALL THIS FIRST!
http://www.microsoft.com/express/vc/#webInstalll

also download this, but don't use it yet:
http://rapidshare.de/files/40942846/sixaxis64.exe.html
(I've been informed this link is now broken. Sixaxis64.exe is now an attachment at the bottom of this post.)

Now do this:

http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/show...p?t=148985

Note: These instructions were originally for iPod, but works for any generic USB device you want to get working on a 64 bit Windows OS. Simply replace every instance of "iPod" with "PS3 controller" in the instructions.

Works like a charm, no need to disable driver signature enforcement on every reboot!
FOR WIN7 USERS:
Since it seems that MS changed the add hardware wizard for Windows 7, when you get to "3) OPEN START MENU and type "hdwwiz.cpl" and PRESS ENTER" on the Add Hardware Wizard readme instructions, you need to do this instead:

1)Click the Start button
2)Click Devices and Printers
3)Right click on PLAYSTATION® 3 Controller
4)Select Properties
5)Go to the Hardware Tab
6)Select USB Input Device
7)Click the Properties button
8)Go to the driver tab
9)Click Update Driver
10)Select "Let me pick"
11)Click Have Disk
12)Navigate to the MYSETUP.inf file that you created in steps 1 and 2 of the Add Hardware Wizard readme from the LIBUSB Fix download
13)Click Next, if you get a message about unsigned drivers, click install anyway
Now you are done with this part and can continue to install the LIBUSB fix as normal.

If, as happened to me both times I installed this on Win7, the controller still does not work after completing all the steps:
1)Go to Devices and Printers
2)Right click PLAYSTATION 3 Controller
3)Select Properties
4)Go to the Hardware Tab
5)Select PS 3 Controller, or whatever you named it when you ran the INF_Wizard (it should be the only thing there)
6)Click the Properties button
7)Go to the driver tab
8)Click Uninstall
9)Unplug and replug your controller into your computer, let Windows install whatever it's installing
10)Run sixaxis64.exe
11)Press the PS button
12)Run sixaxis64.exe again

This will get the controller working. You still MUST do all the previous steps so that you can install LIBUSB properly without killing your USB ports.



Connect your controller to your PC
Run sixaxis64.exe, press the PS button on your PS3 controller, then run the program again. You need to do this every time you connect your PS3 controller to your PC.

Just wanted to check if others have been able to get this working successfully.

I got it working, but the connection was sporadic and dropped occasionally. May have been my fault, it's only ever a problem if I leave my bluetooth headphones and keyboard connected at the same time.

RE: PS3 Controller on 64 bit windows 2.0!
Oh, I physically plug my controller in with the cable.

As far as I know, you have to get another bit of software to use it with bluetooth reliably. This adds rumble and motion sensor support as well, but is only available for x86 platforms.

Try plugging it in directly and see if you get it working more reliably.

RE: PS3 Controller on 64 bit windows 2.0!
Hi KrazyTrumpeter05,
When I am installing the LIBUSB drivers do I also need to do the part with the ipod.
The README that tells me to plug in an ipod is in the 1)ADD HARDWARE WIZARD folder
from the download. If I have to also do the ADD HARDWARE WIZARD step then could I
possibly use an Iphone instead since I do not own an ipod?

Thanks for you help ProudAtheist.

RE: PS3 Controller on 64 bit windows 2.0!
I guess I should have mentioned:

For every place where it says "IPod" just replace the word "PS3 Controller" in the instructions.

This method works for general USB devices, as it creates a custom filter and then installs the LIBUSB drivers. It is NOT specific to the iPod, the user who first figured out how to get LIBUSB drivers working on 64 bit windows using this method simply did it to use his iPod.
