I connected my 360 pad to the pc and can use it as a mouse. How can I use the messenger pad as a keyboard? I usejoytokey Answered

Like the title says, I can now use my 360 controller as a mouse. I'm able to use the buttons but there aren't enough to cover all of the keyboards keys. So I purchased the messenger for the 360 pad, but I'm unable to use it as the keyboard. Are there any programs or steps I could take to use the 360 pad and messenger combo on my PC to browse the net, chat, play games etc. in place of keyboard and mouse? Thanks in advance.

It would appear that Micro$oft has not released any windows drivers for the chat pad, so unless you feel like writing your own, you're out of luck. However, Windows does have an on-screen keyboard, you could program a button press to bring that up, and use it for typing. I had to do that when I left my keyboard at my friends house (long story). If joytokey doesn't allow you to do that, you might try Xpadder http://www.xpadder.com/, it works quite well for me.
