Offtopic: Getting sixaxis working on vista/vistaX64

EDIT , libusb on vista can hurt system if it will work wrong way (e.g. all usb devices doesnt work), a way to fix it – boot safe mode and uninstall libusb., also sources at end of post

a lot of peoples have problems to get sixaxis working in vista64, i solved it for myself tonight.

before doing anything need to disable driver signature checking.

short instruction – download  libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe from  http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=78138&package_id=79216

open file properties, set compatible mode to winxp_sp2 for this .exe. (very important step)

now install  libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe then reboot.

after reboot u can check if this trick worked, in drivers list(driver properties or etc) for usb devices (e.g. usb hid) u will see libusb0.sys (or etc).

now connect your sixaxis to system via usb cable, run this application – http://rapidshare.de/files/40942846/sixaxis64.exe.html (it’s 32-bit app).

it will find sixaxis in list of usb devices and initialize it (if it shows usb devices list but no sixaxis – try another pc usb ports,  if it doesnt list any usb devices – then filtr installation went wrong).

now press PS button and u can calibrate this sixaxis gamepad in window’s control panel.

this way got  sixaxis to work in vista x64 sp1.

so steps is

1) downlaod libusb-win32-filter

2) run  it with compatible mode – windows xp sp2

3) install it, reboot

4) attach sixaxis gamepad, run sixaxis64.exe, press PS button i gamepad

5) if all was ok, now gamepad should work with windows.

    internet connection disappears when libusb-win32-filter is installed, and the sixaxis64 doesnt work, i get error saying that “side-by-side configuration is incorrect”.

    I install libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe reboot and it blue screens during loading and continues to till I use last known good configuration.

    I did put it in compatibility mode.

    Any ideas? I’m in Vista x64 Ultimate?

    libusb isnt very stable in bista yet, especialy if u doesnt set winxp compatibility for setup – it can crash system, so u will have to boot safe mode and desintstall usb

    for x32 apps, there is a a nicer one app, with no enabler, just a driver

    and, afaik, should work on xp64

    Thx in advance!

    December 10th, 2008 | 6:43 am

    taaalib – for some reason it works in IE but not firefox. Try it.

    Also, if I reboot after installing libusb in XP compatibility, it gives all my USB devices some generic driver. I pulled out and old PS2 keyboard and uninstalled libusb, and I can use everything again.

    I tried just doing it without the reboot, but now sixaxis64 is telling me “the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration in incorrect”. Any insight?

    I just did this and all of my USB ports were unavailable

  16. December 11th, 2008 | 9:37 pm

    I also got a blue screen when shutting down in vista x32. I was able to restart though and uninstalled. I guess I need to go buy a 360 controller. :-/

  17. netkas
    December 12th, 2008 | 5:55 pm

    to make it works in vistax64 need to make sure u disabled signature check,
    and vista x32 ahs no need in it, there is exists few drivers, even without libusb.

  18. Nelson
    December 12th, 2008 | 7:50 pm

    On Vista x64 SP1 i can’t get libUSB to work. I just get every USB device in a non working state. I tested it with disabled signature check and with XP SP2 compatibility mode. The gui installed with libusb just show the two first lines ( libusb version number ).

  19. Nelson
    December 12th, 2008 | 7:54 pm

    For people having side-by-side configuration problems, just install Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition 2008 ( or any other Visual c++ Studio edition ) because sixaxis64 ask for a VC Debug dll.

    I install the libusb, then restart my computer. I have no blue screen, but my mouse/keyboard doesn’t work anymore. The keyboard work during the boot (in bios for example), but after the windows logo, nothing work.
    It seem that libusb cause a conflict with my port, or something like that, I don’t know… I needed to boot on my vista disc and repair my OS
    It’s not today that I will be able to play with my ps3 controller… :(

  28. Captain_Duck
    January 12th, 2009 | 5:56 pm

    So how did you people get it to work in XP64 ?

    Whenever i run the sixaxis64 file it says:
    “This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application might fix this problem.”

    Also when i run the libusb test version it has the driver version -1,-1,-1,-1 is this correct?

    WARNING: after installed the program,all USBs are “dead”, internet connection was lost…the unique way to revert this, was restored windows from a restorepoint….so, before intalling the program, do a restoration point in windows.

    i tried this and all my usb ports stoped working along with my network, had to boot into safe mode and uninstall the driver

    vista x64

    and i did boot into windows with the driver check off via the f8 menu pre boot

  31. Weltner
    January 13th, 2009 | 2:40 am

    Do you know why there would be any reason this causes the BSoD? I have tried it multiple times, making sure the driver sign check is off, and yet when I reboot, on the loading bar part of the startup process, it crashes. :/ This is after installing libusb, by the way.

    Will the C++ also fix the fact that my network become disabled, and Mouse not working/ ANY USB DEVICE!

    If not, how do we fix that?

    I got the “Side by side…..” error, I tried using a PS/2 mouse.

    I can’t get it to work on Windows XP x64. Without libusb I can see the controller in Windows Game Controllers control panel, but it doesn’t respond. With libusb, sixaxis64 can initialize the controller, but now the controller is gone from Game Controllers.

  35. January 24th, 2009 | 8:02 am

    Hi there,

    I did the installation all good…. No i run sixaxis64.exe and it says get report >> 0x03F2 and when i disconnet my controller it says sixaxis not found… So that sound all good to me. But now i have to press the ps button to get it in the game control program but thats not working…
    Pls help… Vista 64bit

    “the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration in incorrect”

    I’ve been able to run sixaxis64.exe after removing the USB Hub between my gamepad and the USB cable. Now I have a different layout when I test in Control Panel/Game Controllers.

    I still can’t use the pad, I tried switching USB port and it stays recognized but it doesn’t see keypresses.

    By the way I’ve got a bunch of “Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller” marked with exclamation (marks…).

    I’ll fiddle some more tomorrow..

    Oh and I’m running Vista64 Ultimate on an Asus M3A78-EM.

    February 6th, 2009 | 6:04 pm

    This is VERY RISKY! For some reason, after installing libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe and rebooting, all my USB slots in the back got fried! How do I know this? My internet wasn’t working after rebooting and then I realized that my D-Link USB internet adapter was hooked to the back. I unplugged it and hooked it to the front and there was internet. Luckily, I have two USB slots in the front that didn’t get affected. Yes, I did the WinXP compatibility thing. I have Vista 64-bit.

  41. AnIronicSolution
    February 6th, 2009 | 6:39 pm

    Well, I managed to fix the USB problem. I disabled and reactivated them. I think the driver did something to them. I already uninstalled this driver and I’ll just get a PS2 adapter instead of cutting corners and ruin my PC. Thanks for the attempt, though.

    assuming this is the same for some with Windows Vista X64 bit editions with me running on Windows 7 Beta.

    Installing the lib screws up the USB ports such that all USB ports died after restarting the computer and booting into windows(BIOS still had USB ports powered). In order to fix it, switch a PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse and uninstall the lib, once its uninstalled your USB ports should be fixed

  43. February 14th, 2009 | 10:54 pm

    hmmm…. well first of all im using win7 public beta here. next is i tried using the filter installer thingie and idk if it does anything since i had manually copied the files into the respecitive locations listed in the sixaxis_libusb.inf file. unfortunately i am a total newb when it comes to hacking/programming (i just know sum c and java) and couldn’t QUITE tell what the second section is doing besides maybe messing the registry. also worth noting i disabled driver signing and rebooted before trying any of this. i can now connect ps3 controllers and they show up in Game Controllers (just like 32bit vista) but none of the button presses work. under 32bit i just run ps3sixaxis_en.exe but when i try that it errors (makes sense) but sixaxis64.exe says ERROR: SIXAXIS not found. i am running the program with elevated privileges and still no go. also i had a different error before but installing visual c++ express took care of that. so it looks like sixaxis64 needs a rewrite for win7 (and prolly vista too). OH!!! and i was using libusb-win64 NOT the 32bit crap. i’m no expert but i would definitely NOT advise using that under any circumstances :/

    any chance u open source that mf?

    Also, Im having quite a few problems myself but im making progress, how do I turn off signature check with vista 64?

  50. Jdoggjp85
    March 19th, 2009 | 2:31 am

    it does work in windows 7 x64 for anybody wondering. Dont know which version you guys have but release 7000 of win7 x64 works just fine. you have to disable driver signing before you start windows switch the compability to win32 like it said in the instructions install the libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe reboot and remember to disable the driver signing again ( u might have to do this all the time which is annoying but i have been doing it since vista x64 first came out) then connect the controller it should fine the drivers, if you heard the weird noise that the usb does when it cant install drivers then you might of have a different driver load up and you need to go to device manager fine the exclamation mark for the usb device and uninstall it and reboot again.If everything goes good all the devices should work fine and when you connect the controller you should heard the sucessful noise in windows when you connect a usb device, then just run sixaxis64 ( the window might open and close real quick but it should work just to confirm it did open a command promt and run the sixaxis64 from there and you should have some thing like this ”
    Sony – PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller
    REQUEST: Get_Report >> 0x03f2
    SUCCESS: Data << f2 ff ff 00 00 23 06 b4 e6 0e 00 03 50 81 d8 01 8a
    SIXAXIS initialized “) and if you go to the game controllers in control panel and then properties and it should be working if not make sure u press the the middle PS button in the control that should make it work.

    March 25th, 2009 | 12:01 am

    Yeah, I definitely want this to work with Vista 64-bit, but I don’t really want to try it, taking a chance like that. I’ll just play my games on my crappy XP laptop until there is some awesome fix that comes out for the 64-bit version, with no USB disabling, etc.

  54. Kirculez
    March 27th, 2009 | 6:13 am

    OK… so I feel like I’m onto something here.

    First I put my Windows 7 machine into Test Mode via Digital Signer Enforcement Overider (DSEO) http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=Files&go=cat&dwn_cat_id=34 .This means I dont have to keep choosing “Disable Driver Signage” at bootup. (watermark removal is possible)

    I then downloaded the Sixaxis x64 drivers from http://www.4shared.com/file/41034572/1c815fbc/SIXAXIS_libusb-win64.html I proceded to digitaly sign the .sys files with DSEO.

    Then I ran install-filter.exe. Afterwards, I went to the device manager and specified sixaxis-libusb.inf as the new driver location for USB Human Interface Device (the Sixaxis’) THIS LEFT MY OTHER USB PORTS ALONE!!!! (no BSOD crap)

    The SIXAXIS is now in a new LibUSB menu in Device Manager. When I run testlibusb-win.exe it now recognizes the controller (instead of -1 -1 -1 -1)

    The last step… Running the Initiator (ps3sixaxis_en.exe). It crashes and nothing I can do will let it run. I tried sixaxis64.exe from this tutorial and it shows the side-by-side error.

    Any help on this last step and x64 use will be safe and stable.

    I have been partially successful in using the sixaxis64.exe found at http://rapidshare.de/files/40942846/sixaxis64.exe.html (the one from this threads instructions)

    When run it claims that Sixaxis has been activated, but no amount of PS button pressing will make it appear in the controllers list. Everything appears to be working. What am I missing?

    Yes I already have VC and sixaxis64 works and even says SIXAXIS Initiated. It is in my Devices and Printers list (Windows 7 feature) and it appears to be working but will not show itself in the game controllers list. There is not settings button in “Game Controllers”.

  60. Kirculez
    March 28th, 2009 | 9:30 pm

    Windows does see the controller in device manager and in Devices & Printers but not in the controllers list. I cannot plug it into another usb port due to the fact that these unsigned drivers are tied to the port they are installed on. When its plugged in another port I get what everyone gets before they start trying to make the controller work. I could install on another port but I have already tried that and I only have 2 available to me at the moment (both on the same PCI resource)

    I also disabled drivers signature checking before the libusb installation.

    Anyones has any insight on what went wrong?

    While disable drivers enforcment has started (Disable Firewall and also UAC) then install lilusb win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1 after that restart comp press f8 again disable drivers enforcment you will have to do this every time you restart or turn on your comp, or your keyboard and mouse wont work. You can probably turn firewall back on if everything works.

  68. Viperfx
    April 4th, 2009 | 3:12 pm

    actually now i have solved the situation. I used the program that was given a few posts above … DSEO.

    http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=Files&go=cat&dwn_cat_id=34

    After all the steps i used it to sign, usbhub.sys and then i never got anymore problems, such as constant BSOD’s.

    However the calibration is lost everytime computer starts, still not sure how to fix that.

  69. Viperfx
    April 5th, 2009 | 10:17 am

  71. Viperfx
    April 7th, 2009 | 7:44 pm

    my instructions? well if so, np :D

    But can i ask wether your using 64bit or 32 bit windows 7, and does it BSOD on shutdown.

  72. TaS
    April 9th, 2009 | 11:15 pm

    After speding 1 day, I finally got it worked. Please follow the following steps in order to make it work:

    1. Install DSEO, then select test mode
    2. Restart
    3. Install win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1 and select windows2000 compatibility from properties
    4. Connect your sixaxis controller and press ps button
    5. Run sixaxis64.exe

    If this does not work simple try a different usb slot.

    Tested on Vista64 sp1

    Not a good idea… brought my system to a halt. Something in the BIOS didn’t like the new drivers. Had to restart in safe mode & reinstall old drivers, then tell Windows to start in last known good configuration. My verdict – wait until there is a more reliable way to do this on 64bit machines.

    IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS VISTA SP2 DO NOT USE THIS APPLICATION! This thing caused me nothing but a fucking headache. After I followed the instructions, I had to first end up typing my password with the on-screen keyboard because my keyboard was disabled from some fucked up win32 configuration I’m betting. Then all of my USB drivers got fucked and I can’t even listen to my iPod and still trying to figure out how to fix.

    ////find libusb0.sys somewhere in windows folder and remove it

    I can’t even use mouse or keyboard in safe mode after installing libusb, so there for can’t uninstall, but if any one know’s how please let me know

    So my usb ports have stopped working in both normal mode and safe mode how did everybody remove this driver without going back to last known configuration? If its to do with F8 what option should I be choosing – I’ve tried them all!

    If your computer is anything like mine…

    (I run Windows Vista Home Premium SP2)

    …Then your mouse and keyboard was totally corrupted and even F8 doesn’t work to try to uninstall in Safe Mode.

    I used the on-screen keyboard to type in my password and then I just simply uninstalled libusb, re-installed all my drivers with the “Drivers Disc” that was sent with my computer and everything was fixed.

    well i am having the same problem no usb at all no kb or mouse… I can into the safe mode selection screen however I lose my keyboard and mouse in even in safe mode, and as I have a newer computer with no ps2 jacks im kinda screwed. My only salvation is that I run a dual boot with xp on the other hard drive so i can still get to that (where im typing this from) and as Ive lost my vista cd (actually the kids kinda destroyed it) I cant repair that way either.

    I can still access the other hard drive through xp tho, so I wanted to know if there is a way i can somehow uninstall the libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1 from the other drive without actually booting into the vista side, or manually repair it from this xp side that is still working

    /// find and remove libusb0.sys (or libusb.sys) and libusb.dll files in windows folder of vista partition

    mike did u try f8 at startup, if not do a system restore, it worked for me at least, i use vista 32bit sp2.

    June 27th, 2009 | 8:40 am

    yeah I can get to f8 menu however as windows loads i lose usb (ie i see the lights on my mouse turn off thru the loading screen… lose keyboard too so i have no way to input any commands) and as Ive said the Vista 64 disk has been destroyed… havent contacted Microsoft for a replacement although i think just salvaging the files and reinstalling xp might be more appropriate and faster as I am really beginning to hate vista and kinda want to scrap it in liu of xp anyway. Still Id hate to see my system go to fail status because I wanted to use the SixAxis controller on my comp :D

    Admin: i deleted the libusb*.* pretty much on the other harddrive… but no luck its a 64 bit install i dont know if that makes a difference although i found the files in the sysWOW64 directory …. still SOL on USB in that windows startup

    Any other ideas would be very appriciated

    mike try a wireless mouse because when i installed libusb i could connect my phone and bluetooth stick and they were recognized, even tho my wired keyboard/mouse were not so some things are still recognized when libusb is installed, with a bit of luck it might work.

    I am also getting the side-by-side error, I tried it with Visual Studio C++ 2008, and then the Visual C++ 2008 x86 and x64 redistributable and none of them worked. I also tried unplugging my usb hub and it didn’t do anything. I haven’t had any problems with other devices and the controller shows up in the Game Controllers control panel but it doesn’t respond to any axis or button presses. I am running Windows 7 RC. The controller used to work fine in XP.
