    I have one of these gamepads:

    SteelSeries Stratus Bluetooth Gamepad

    Code:
    http://steelseries.com/gaming-controllers/stratus-wireless
    It works without problem with iOs devices but I can't pair it with windows. I tried it with windows 7 & windows 10 but it wont work. The windows can find the controller but unfortunately the buttons don't work.

    It pairs & shows a transparent icon & name of the controller in the "devices and printers" section but it doesn't work.

    I know that in the developer's website they said that it only works with ios but this is a bluetooth device and always there is way to pair bluetooth devices with windows.

    So anybody knows a software, a solution or a trick to make it work in windows?

    Hi raya2,
    apologies as it seems your post has been missed.

    I did check over the controller and it seems to have been designed for Apple devices only.

    Thank u for your response.

    Yeah, I know that this device have been designed for Apple devices only but Like I said, its a bluetooth device and every bluetooth devices can be paired be windows If the right software (driver) found.

    For example, DS3 (DualShock3) that is the main controller for PS3 console & they said only works with PS3 only. But some people made softwares (drivers) for it & now it works with windows perfectly.

    Maybe it's just a case of waiting until a windows driver is released or modded?

    I've contacted the developer some months ago & they said they won't release any windows driver for this product.
    And some weeks ago they released another bluetooth controller that have driver for windows! By this, they want people to purchase each controller for each platform.

    Also, this controller is not as popular as the DS3, Thats why I made this topic.
