DS4Windows is an extract anywhere program that allows you to get the best DualShock 4 experience on your PC. By emulating an Xbox 360 controller, many more games are accessible.
If DS4Windows does not detect your DS4 and the lightbar continues to flash yellow, there is a chance that Exclusive Mode has permanently disabled your DS4 in Windows. The easiest way to test if this has happened is to plug the controller into a different USB port and see if it works. Although this problem mainly affected older versions of DS4Windows (text written after version 1.5.15) for various reasons, other mapping programs can cause the same problem to occur.
If you suspect that your DS4 has been disabled, open the Device Manager (Control Panel > Hardware and SoundDevice Manager) and look for devices listed under the path “Human Interface DevicesHID-compliant game controller.”
Although we lacked a controller for our tests, the app looks simpler to use than the description. A shortcut to install the DS4 driver is provided to install the 360 drivers if using an operating system older than Windows 7. The rest of the instructions are provided, making this easy to set up.
