An input protocol developed by microsoft in the mid 90's designed to attempt to standardise communication between input devices and games. Direct input has been mostly replaced by XInput for most gaming devices, but Direct input remains fully supported by Microsoft due to the fact that complex devices such as flight sticks and wheels require it due to the more complex and higher number of inputs.

Hi Wobbles, I can't seem to be able to send you an email so going to post here in hopes you see it. I have polled resources form the various posts and created a thread with full instructions to get exclusive mode working, including 2nd Gen controllers.
I have proven it to work for USB, BT, and Sony Dongle, with both Gen controllers on the latest build of windows 10.
I was hoping you could sticky this thread so it won't get buried by others creating posts about it not working. May also save people posting more tickets on it.
