QGamePad examples not working

  • Hi,

    I cannot run any QGamePad examples on my Windows 7, 64 bit computer. I use Qt5.7.0 Mingw. It displays the following error:

    Failed to load XInput library xinput1_3.dll
    qt.gamepad: Failed to start gamepad backend

    Pls note that the game pad in question has been tested on my system based on this guideline: and works.

    I have also reinstalled DirectX and have copied the xinput1_3.dll to basically all the directories in the Configure Buttons example as suggested by some people - still have the same error.

    I am really confused..

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Did you check whether xinput1_3.dll has any dependency that you might be missing ?
