xbox controller shared but not as game controller

Hi there,
 
So I have two xbox controllers that I am trying to use with USB over Network. One controller is an older model and one is the newest model. USB over Network can successfully share each controller to the destination computer but only the newer model of xbox controller is actually detected by Windows. The older model controller is shared but not detected by Windows. By detected I mean it shows under "Game Controllers". This is puzzling me because both controllers are detected as game controllers just fine on the origin computer that I am sharing the controllers from. Any thoughts on this?
 
Thanks

Hi,
 
Thanks for the interest in our product.
1) I would advise you to plug your old xbox controller directly into USB over Network (client) PC and test it there locally.
2) create DWORD value (value data 1) UseLegacyBus on USB over Network (client) PC
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ftusbsrvc
reboot client PC, share the device and try to reproduce the issue again.
3) Do you use a console (not remote) session on USB over Network (client) PC?

Hi. I tried tip number 2 - creating the registry key UseLegacyBus and that solved the problem. I did not understand what you meant by console(not remote) session but the controller is now recognized by Windows under game controllers.  
 
Thank you for your help.

Hi again,
 
I am glad to know that your problem has been resolved.
Regarding "console(not remote) session". Launch Task Manager on USB over Network (client) PC (not within RD session), click on Users, you'll see the type of your session there.
