DS4Windows (Ryochan7)


Recommended Posts

Like those other DS4 tools, but sexier.

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.
Other input controllers are also supported including the DualSense, Switch Pro, and JoyCon controllers (first party hardware only).

This project is a fork of the work of Jays2Kings which Jays2Kings seem's has been abandoned.
You can find the old project website at ds4windows.com if it is still available.

DS4Windows Preview


  • Main builds of DS4Windows
  • The .7zip package is smaller but requires the 7zip software in order to open/extract it
  • Extract the package in a easily accessible folder (e.g.: Desktop, Documents, Download etc)
    • DO NOT extract it inside a folder the requires elevated privileges (e.g.: Program Files, Windows)
  • Execute the DS4Windows.exe file to run DS4Windows
  • On first launch DS4Windows may ask you where to save its user data (settings and profiles):
    • AppData folder (recommended): user data is stored outside of the program folder, inside a special folder reserved to your Windows user
    • Program folder: user data is stored inside the same folder DS4Windows.exe is located.


  • Windows 10 or newer (Thanks Microsoft)
  • Microsoft .NET 5.0 or higher
  • Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable. x64 or x86
  • ViGEmBus driver (DS4Windows will install it for you)
  • Microsoft 360 Driver (link inside DS4Windows, already installed by Windows if you've used a 360 controller before)
  • Sony DualShock 4 or other supported controller
  • Connection method:
    • Micro USB cable
    • Sony Wireless Adapter
    • Bluetooth 4.0 (via an adapter like this or built in pc). Only use of Microsoft BT stack is supported. CSR BT stack is confirmed to not work with the DS4 even though some CSR adapters work fine using Microsoft BT stack. Toshiba's adapters currently do not work. Disabling 'Enable output data' in the controller profile settings might help with latency issues, but will disable lightbar and rumble support.
  • Disable PlayStation Configuration Support and Xbox Configuration Support options in Steam
