Xbox One Controller with rolled back Xinput drivers after Windows 10 Anniversary Update still not working
I am having the same issues many others have reported after receiving the Windows 10 Anniversary update. I have already rolled back the drivers to the version available for download from Microsoft as mentioned in these directions:

After rolling back, Windows recognizes the new drivers and everything looks fine when I open the Gamepad Control Panel to test it. However, Steam BPM does not recognize any controller is connected. When I roll back to the new (broken) Windows Anniversary update drivers, I continue to have the same issues where there are double button presses, sometimes buttons just don't work (B to back out of the current menu, for example), etc. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting the Xbox controller wireless adapter, re-pairing the controller, and even tried another model controller (the original one before the Xbox One S controller became available).

Is there still no real fix for this? Everyone else seems to be reporting that rolling back the drivers works fine for them, but why is Steam BPM not recognizing it for me after rolling back? This is so frustrating.

I've still got the same issues here, I have one controller connecting fine but two that BPM won't see at all that Windows sees fine. Very frustrating.

Everything still works when plugged in via USB for me, but obviously that's not ideal. Does your controller work when wired?

Thanks, I haven't tried wired My setup is meant for couch gaming and wires just wouldn't work for this environment, but I'll try it if what I'm about to mention doesn't work out...

I think I might have found a fix. I started looking at when the latest version of Steam came out, and noticed it was January (or at least the version I had). Then I started reading the beta release announcements and saw a bunch of fixes for various Xbox controller issues. None of them were specifically related to the issues I was experiencing, but I decided to give it a shot. Well, most of the problems are fixed! I even turned on both Xbox One controllers and did not experience any of the double-inputs that plagued the latest stable release. Give it a shot if you're still having issues.
