On Linux, I can access my joystick with the following path: /dev/input/js0

Is there a similar way I can access my joystick on Windows?

It might help to say exactly what you need to do. Windows and linux handle devices very differently – Journeyman Geek May 28 '10 at 7:19

It might be accessible under the \\?\Device\ tree, check with WinObj. However, not all Windows APIs are able to access "files" under \\.\ and \\?\, so this won't help much.

AutoHotkey can access the joystick which you can use to trigger keyboard shortcuts and macros etc.
