Found a correct way to fix Exclusive Mode on Windows 10 Fall Creators for DS4

1 year 8 months ago - 1 year 7 months ago #1 by Nechigawara
Tested by me, this fixed worked with wired connection mode with DUALSHOCK 4.
People who want to follow my instruction need to intall lastest HID Guardian.

1. Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers

2. Right Click on "Wireless Controller", choose "Properties"

3. Go to tab "Hardware", Select "HID-compliant game controller", then click "Properties"

4. Go to tab "Detail", select "Hardware Ids" from the drop-down menu.

5. Copy first 3 strings to notepad, it will be need later.

6. Press WinKey + R, type "regedit" then press Enter

7. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HidGuardian\Parameters"

8. Right Click on "AffectedDevices", choose "Modify..."

9. Paste the 3 strings we copied from Hardware Ids in step 5, one per line. If some of them are already in there, skip. Make sure the last line is blank. Press OK.

10. Restart your PC. Now, Exclusive Mode should be work again for DUALSHOCK 4 with wired connection mode.

The reason is problaly Windows 10 Fall Creators have a new driver that change DUALSHOCK 4 Hardware Ids in USB mode.
Since I use Official DUALSHOCK 4 Bluetooth Dongle from Sony, I can't confirm this on Wireless mode with other Bluetooth dongle.

I just started messing with Inputmapper on my machine with latest Fall Creators and the 3 Hardware ID's I had from my Sony dongle were already there, and the same listed for an old Logitech 2.0 EDR. But wired had 2 different entries.

OS: Windows 10 Pro // Version 1709 // build 16299.64
DS4 controller: Latest revision
BT Dongle: Cheap 5$ CSR V4.0

Wired: Works no extra step needed (i just followed your instructions)

Bluetooth: Works but following this guide alone doesn't.

Hardware IDs spitted out following this guide for Bluetooth..
BTHENUM\{00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb}_VID&0002054c_PID&09cc

i had to modify it before copy/pasting the strings into the regedit.. to this..
HID\{00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb}_VID&0002054c_PID&09cc

Rebooted.. and success!

Basically the "BTHENUM" prefix needs to be replaced with "HID"..

And thanks to you Nechigawara... i can now uninstall DS4windows

Ok, so my regedit doesnt have an "affected devices" tab to modify. Do i just create one or should i modify "default" ?

Thanks for the guide! Fixed the issues I've been having.

Just a couple notes:
Step 6 should say WinKey + R, not Ctrl.
In step 10 you only need to restart the InputMapper Cerberus Whitelister service.

For the service part, for some noobs, i think keeping whole pc restart is better so the noobs won't break their PC by stop some important services by accident. :D

You can stop and restart the service from the HIDguardian directory using the supplied shortcuts.
I had exclusive mode working with Bluetooth (with the above fixes) before this last windows version, but I don't need it so not going to try and figure out what got broke.

Asus STRIX X299-E GAMING MB, i7-7820X 3.6/4.5GHz 8-Core, 32GB Corsair Dominator Platinum (CMD16GX4M2B2400C10), NVIDIA TITAN X (Pascal), Samsung 970 Pro 1TB M.2-NVMe w/Western Digital 2TB (WD2000F9YZ), Samsung 65Q9FN QLED, HTC Vive, 850w PS, W10

I didn't have the shortcut you're mention except the install & uninstall one. And the bat file in are doing nothing.
Well, I still think restart the pc is more easier solution.
