Are teh driver links dead?  I get a 404 error for the one including source and I get a connection issue for the main one.  I can't download from either links to bypass the Disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

I recieved my XIM2 awhile back and just now tried to install it and get it working (been traveling for work). I seen there is a new version of the software so I downloaded it (r051509) and followed all the instructions from this thread, booting in with f8 to "disable driver signature enforcement". However I still get the message when I am starting XIM software that the drivers are not signed (is that normal?).

So the issue is when I get to the point where I put in the black and white USB's it just hangs at "execute: c:\program files (x86)\XIM 360\XIMCalibrate.exe and nothing ever happens.

I have tried following the instructions that came with the XIM2 and the ones in this thread and have yet to get this to work.

Any advice?

Thank you,

Kevin

After searching more online i found a few things about opening up the controler/ checking connections. I did this and everything looked good and had good penetrations on the solder. I have tried this installing this on 2 other Win7 x64 machines with the exact same outcome. 

1. with out controller attached, boot in with F8 chose the disable driver enforcement
2. logged into windows
3. plugged black usb into the Mobo USB.
4. Ran XIM software (XIM360install-r051509)
5. windows pop up comes up stating that the drivers are not signed... but press install anyway
6. propts for config and plug in USB cables, install the last white USB cable.
7. XIM software now sits there and does not budge.

If I x out of the install after 30 min I can go to the program folder and the programs are listed but when I run XIM I get the 401 error that XIM can not contact the hardware.

What am I missing?


Anyone have any idea's?

Thank you.

yes I did. I went in order of the instructions listed above at the beginning of the thread. Think it could be the unit itself or software?

Thank you for your time.

These instructions helped immensely since I decided to dig out my XIM2.   The only thing I didn't see mentioned is that you need to disable driver signing each time you start Windows.  That may be something I did incorrectly, but it's the best fix for me instead of searching for something that does it automatically.

Something went wrong on your end, by following this guide it should allow you to boot windows normally with driver signatures disabled.
