Running Kodi 14.2 (also tried 15), upgraded to Windows 10 10240 final and find my Xbox One Controller now doesn't work in Kodi.  Wondering if anyone knows a fix, or should I ask on the official Kodi forums?
Windows 10 final implements a new proper driver for the controller so I think that might be the issue.  Tried reverting the driver to previous but then Steam doesn't like that.

You might not find many people using a game controller as a remote. More than likely it is the drivers.

That's true.  I like to be different :)

I have the system autoboot to Steam Big Picture, in that I have Kodi shortcut.  So have no requirement to touch keyboard, mouse, or remote.  Also found controller very quick in Kodi and simple.

I think I have figured it out, Microsoft have changed the name of the controller in Windows 10 in device manager from Microsoft Xbox One Controller to Xbox Controller, looks like I might have to change the device in the keymaps xmls to represent the new name.

Unfortunately, switching the driver like this breaks the Xbox One > Windows 10 streaming.  The Xbox app doesn't detect a controller when you try to stream if you use the "Microsoft Xbox One Controller" driver.
