I have a question, I want to know which type of controllers are connected to my PC. For example it is a XBox controller or a normal usb gamepad.

I think the path you're looking for is:


In the general case, replace the GUID in that path with the GUID in the ClassGUID key for your device, and replace the 0017 with the specific device instance from the Device key.

Apologies... Will have another look. Have you tried a simple registry search for "Twin USB Gamepad"? Also, look in your WINDOWS\inf directory for the input.inf file, do a text search there for "Twin USB Gamepad". – Mike Insch Jul 26 '11 at 16:15
