HID Wiimote Windows 10 Builds


HID Wiimote Windows 10 Builds

Some more information

From now on there will be a unified build for Windows Desktop systems. The new WDK 10 makes it possible and in return it means less mess with different packages.

This build has nothing new except that is has been rebuild with the newest Visual Studio 2015 and Windows Driver Kit 10. So for non Windows 10 users there is no urgent need to download/update it. But you can if you like to, just make sure to uninstall the previous/old driver.

This new build was tested on a Windows 10 system with a build-in Bluetooth adapter and a separate Bluetooth Dongle, as well as on a Windows 8.1 system with a Bluetooth Dongle. I wasn’t able to test it on Windows 7, because i have currently no Windows 7 system here around, so please report back if there is any issue.

Windows 10 Universal Driver: Coming Soon™

So this is a multi-system Desktop build and not an Universal Driver. I am going to provide an Universal Driver as well soon, but there is some work to be done. The driver compiles fine and without any error. The only issue is that i have to make an universal .inf file, which simply requires me to read through the MSDN documentation.  However, i am currently not able to test the Universal Driver on a Windows Phone nor on an IoT-System, so the build is going to be purely experimental and for people that just want to give it a try.

I am also not quite certain about the driver signing regarding the Universal Driver. I have no clue whether it is possible to deactivate the driver verification on Mobile and IoT-Systems and get an unsigned driver loaded. I would assume there is some way, because devs need the ability to test drivers on the device, but that might require additional test modes, which in turn may have side effects.


  • Windows 10 Desktop Build

HID Wiimote Update 20.04.2015

Wii U Pro Controller

Yay, Update for HID Wiimote! The Nunchuck and Classic Controller (Pro) Extensions are now supported. In Addition to that the Wii U Pro Controller is supported as well.

I’ve added a lot of Buttons and some more Axis as well as a Hat Switch to the Properties Dialog. The Button Mapping switches dynamically when an Extension is plugged in.

With my Wii Remote the Extension is sometimes not correctly detected. In that case you have to remove the Extension and plug it in again until it works (Sometimes take up to 10 tries; but maybe my Wiimote has just a loose contact and there is normally no such problem).

My next task is creating an IR-Mouse driver as many have requested. I’ve already made quite good progress on that.

I would be very happy when you spread the news and this Blog entry or the HID Wiimote Project Page is shared on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and all other sites.

Last but not least, i am streaming my coding sessions on Livecoding.tv and Twitch.tv. So feel free to join my streams and ask questions. My regular streaming schedule is every Monday starting at 08:00 PM (Berlin/UTC+1).

So get the newest version here.
