Can you use xbox360 controller and chat pad / messenger pad as a mouse and keyboard?

I know you can use xbox360 controller in games but I would like to use as an alternative for mouse and keyboard. Can this be done?

Have you tried it? Given that the controller "just works" the keyboard might too. – ChrisF Aug 3 '12 at 22:28
I have tried the Xbox controller. But it doesn't "just work" and I have installed the driver for te wireless Xbox adapter. – jaget Aug 3 '12 at 22:29
It been a while since In tried the wired controller so there could have been a driver to install - but it installed automatically - which was my point. If you try the controller + messenger pad it might be recognised and install the necessary drivers. – ChrisF Aug 3 '12 at 22:33
