Re: installation

First, I'm going to assume this controller is usb and not wireless, blue-tooth, or gameport. Second, if you have a usb mouse or keyboard and it works fine, then its going to be that you need to find vista drivers for your device and install the drivers before plugging it in. If you have another usb device, try plugging it into the usb port and if it doesnt work either your computer is faulty or you need to update it. Vista is rather fickle when it comes to drivers and what not. Instead of windows coming out with the drivers, they let other people come out with them then they endorse those drivers. Try going to logitechs site, they are usually extremely helpful and easy to navigate. You can probably find drivers for your device easily. If you need any more help, let me know, I'll find you a few other solutions.

How do you install

usually they include a disk put the disk in, if it doesn't auto play, go into "my computer"(or if your using vista or windows 7 its called "computer")there should be an icon of the software your trying to install, right click on it and go to "AutoPlay", if that doesn't do it then right click on that same icon and go to "open" then there should be a .exe file in there usually called setup. i hope this helps

Vista OS

It does not work with vista at least not for me. And besides with XP and Vista you shouldn't have to install it anyway as both OS's have a feature called plug and play which means that when you plug it in via a USB port Windows Xp automatically recognize it and its driver. Thats one thing about XP thats so great XP just about recognizes every joystick and game pad driver there is without installing the pads software.
