    Xbox One controller is not working

    I installed Windows 10 for the first time a few hours ago. I like the new interface, etc, but I have a few problems:
    Xbox One wired controller doesn't work. Windows 10 automatically install a driver for it, but it still doesn't work. I tried some solutions like this, but without success. I haven't that Microsoft Xbox One Controller entry he wrote about.

    Xbox controller works fine with another PC. And these USB ports as well, works fine with other devices.

    For anyone interested:
    I luckily found an old version of drivers for Win 7 and Win8. So now I can choose "Microsoft Xbox One Controller" inside the "update drivers" screen.

    This is so odd.

    EDIT: Controller works, but in some games LT and RT doesn't work.
    God, I miss Windows 7 so much....

    EDIT 2:
    Ok, I figured it out. To fix this problem. Install old version of the driver, you can find here Xbox One Controller PC Drivers Are Now Out For Download, Courtesy of Major Nelson

    After installation, plug in your controller and wait for the automatic driver installation. It works bad.
    So you have to go in Device Manager, right click on controller that has "danger" icon, select Update Driver, then select the manual method and choose this old version
    Click image for larger version.
