PTT XBOX 1 Issues with Windows 10 Anniversary Update
Two days ago, my computer updated to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Since then, my PTT Advance to Current Channel doesn't work like it's supposed to.

I usually setup a binding for my Xbox One controller on the Left Joystick to talk to Current Channel. This has worked for over a year, including Windows 10, until this update. When I have Ventrilo clicked on as my main window, the bindings work. Once I click off to desktop/game/browser, it stops working. Kind of defeats the purpose, and now I can't talk easily on Ventrilo with games that use a controller.

I have tried your typical Ventrilo fixes already as well. Running as administrator, changing USB with controller, reinstalling Ventrilo, made sure nothing is muted. I mean it works if the Ventrilo Client is main window clicked on/active, but other than that it doesn't.

Please help or else the server I have had for about a decade now, might have to be switched over to TeamSpeak or Mumble if this isn't fixed soon. Really don't want to lose my Ventrilo Server address that I've had for this long either. Thank you for your help!

well, i just updated my win10 and it broke mine too. I'm going to try to roll-back the xinput and/or xbox drivers to the 10586 version. if i get it to work i will post the instructions.

Was able to fix my problem. I guess it's a Microsoft issue more so than Ventrilo. Other VOIP programs had the same issues.


That fix seemed to work for me. Had to take a few extra steps to get it working like they did though. Unzipped ALL files into a folder. You also have to have your Xbox One controller plugged in to get Xinput to show up in your Device Manager. Otherwise it won't show up, and show Xbox One Wireless Controller.

Updated Drivers like they said to. The drivers installed but never updated though, so I had to go back and select. This time instead of the files, there was an option for XInput older driver instead of the newer one. When I did this, it worked for me. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the follow-up. I did install this driver and it does work tho it's not the version I was looking for.

CAUTION: before installing any files, manually scan them with your favorite A/V and/or Malware checkers

Hey, thx for the headsup. i was in a hurry and overlooked the link. and yes, the spambots have been horrible this year.

on ver4. we're putting the the finishing touches on it right now and squashing the last of the little 'undocumented features' ie: bugs . (

I was able to get my Xbox One controller to finally work properly with PTT.

Would you mind explaining why? Hey, you have a hidden link what is it all about?
