no power attacks with 360 controller on pc
I've got a little problem. When I'm playing Skyrim on my PC with an XBox Controller, the Power Attacks wont work propperly.
Especially with the Dagger. I'm holding the right trigger and my character performs a normal attack right before performing a power attack. When I'm playing with mouse and Keyboard, the power attacks work just fine. I also tried different controllers.
I couldn't find solutions online, so maby here somone has an idea.

No matter what version of windows you have you do need to DL the Xbox 360 controller for Windows software. Here is a set up guide, once you do that you should never have any problems with any game that has controller support.

it requires them, its just that Windows detects the device (its made by/for Microsoft) and installs them automatically...

I have the wired one also and if you click on the link I posted the entire first half of it is for wired controllers, and the second half is all for wireless ones. You will also see in the part for the wired controller that it also tells you everything you need to know about how to test it and has a link to a troubleshooting guide if it fails the test.

Windows did DL everything automatically for me, but sometimes it doesn't do that, my friend had to DL it all from that link and we both use the same version of Windows 7. His controller worked but had lag so he went to the PC install page. That is when he found out he was using a default USB controller driver and not the official Xbox one. He installed the program and hasn't had an issue since. One way to tell if you have the program or not is easy, if your quadrant light is lit up in only one quadrant (his was all four), and when you press the center button it should open the program when your on the desktop.

MS made the how to for a reason, since the OP is having problems he should test it out like how it tells him too.
