First, have a go at the installation guide in karx's signature. I really have no idea what a side-by-side configuration is, so it'd be nice to see the full error message if you still have problems.

DLL-related I believe, but I think there's a different warning for an outright missing DLL. I haven't seen WinSxS errors personally in a long time.

Well, if people actually read a FAQ, it wouldn't be a FAQ. :lol:

It is a dll problem.
This sounds like exactly the problem I've had, so far I haven't solved it but I do have some suggestions that Karx gave me: Make sure Windows is up to date (use Windows Update), Install MSVC++ 2008 SP1 (you can find it on the Microsoft website, or just google it -- but downloading it from Microsoft would be the safest way to download it of course). I've had some problems actually doing these steps, but from what I've been told they should solve the problem if you can do them. Apparently everyone else can do these though, so I don't think you'll have any problem with it. Let me know if it works!

Then do read the FAQ, as karx11erx has told you to, the link is in karx11erx's signature. It's always important to look there before asking your questions in any community. Your question is answered there.

Please understand, people in this community are more than willing to answer your questions, providing that you also are willing to search for your own answers first. That means you have to spend some time and look through the documentation that karx11erx has provided. People aren't going to want to hold your hand every step of the way just cause you are young. We old codgers have other things to do in our lives.

You need to explain that more detailled and more precisely.

I think he meant "wouldn't".

If that is the case? Just use the standard joystick config and map the buttons to your desire. ;)
