Hello People of FIRST,
We are having a problem with our Xbox controller. It not is wanting to cooperate and we found out that we need drivers to install into the roborio as far as I know. Would this be the problem or is it something completely different? We are coding in C++ by the way. Forgive me if I posted something wrong or is this is posted somewhere else.
Thank you for all the help,

The Xbox controller should connect to your laptop - so you’re going to need to install drivers on the laptop so the controller can talk to the laptop.
The laptop will handle sending the data to the roborio.
This is a ** wired ** controller, right?
We have used the xbox and clone by rock candy.
Both have worked very well. In fact we took one apart wired it to various toggle switches and built a custom secondary driver interface.
We have only used them on windows systems, but they are a treated like a standard joystick/gamepad. Some of the buttons will not function. Such as the start, menu and X buttons, the rest work fine.
You should test them in the control panel, joystick/gamepad icon to verify operation in windows.
I find that they behave best by connecting and testing them prior to starting up the robot control systems software.
