    Hi all,

    I have a low end usb double game pad/controller that i use with windows
    xp. I want to capture inputs from the game pad to use it as a simple
    remote for a windows C# application. I dont want something fancey or
    anything.
    In windows xp when u go to control panel and click on Game Controller
    you can check if the game pad is working right or not, so i think
    there's already out of the box APIs in XP for that.

    Can someone help me or point me to where to start?

    Thanks a lot your help is really appreciated

    I just flew in from Chicago with
    a man with a wooden leg named Smith
    who shot an elephant in my pajamas.
    So I bit him.
