    Xbox elite 2 controller stopped working on PC after update


    Hi,
    So I have a new elite 2 controller trying to connect to a windows 10 version 21H1. Yesterday it was working ok, but then I updated the software of this controller through Xbox one x console as I paired it with the console. Now I want to get back to PC and pair it via Bluetooth but although It looks correct in a bluetooth devices list:

    It's not recognized in a xbox app:

    Also, I lost the possibility to manage the controller from Xbox accessories app as I now when I launch that app with my controller plugged in via cable to PC I get an error that this app isn't yet supporting my controller? So what do I need to do in order to get my controller working back again?

    Xbox One Elite controller not working anymore after (failed?) Xbox Accessories firmware upgrade

    Hi Neecko92,

    Seems like the only workaround now is to connect your Elite controller to a Xbox One console, and update your Elite controller via the Xbox One console. Then it will work on your PC again.

    Elite Controller

    I've got an Xbox One Elite controller and after about a year the headphone jack stopped working so I started using it with my PC instead. After about 2 years the rubber is starting to come unglued from the grip. Other than that everything else is working
    fine, no drift or lag etc.

    I removed the paddles because every time I sat the controller down on my leg or even on my table, which is full of clutter, the paddles would be pressed and I'd be choosing random stuff on the Xbox.

    Xbox One controller broken by Windows Anniversary Update

    My Xbox elite controller just stopped working yesterday on a recently purchased laptop but already had the anniversary update on it so I can't roll back to the previous version of Windows 10.

    I've noticed now that in the device and printer section of the Control Panel I've got a Xbox 360 controller for Windows entry which isn't present on another version of Windows 10 install on my desktop PC so this laptop now has two entries the elite controller
    and the Xbox 360 controller in Control Panel.If I disabled the Xbox 360 controller entry I get functionality on the elite controller but on a restart Windows the 360 controller reappears in Control Panel and in device manager.

    Strange thing that for a week since I've had this new laptop everything was working fine in, now steam doesn't recognise the elite controller and windows hasn't done an update so how's this happened?
