    I'am having trouble setting up my Xbox 360 controller receiver under Parallels 9. I used the generic drivers that come with Windows 7 but for some reason the receiver and controller never sync up. Used to work OK IN Windows 7 UNDER Bootcamp.

    EDIT: I had to download the Xbox360 Controller Device driver, all OK now.

    Whenever I wanted it to work with parallels I had to go to the menus for parallels and go to the one that lists different devices and go under USB and choose the wireless adaptor device for parallels to capture it for exclusive use. I haven't had parallels installed in months though so I don't remember exactly the menu structure though.
