How to fix the XBOX controller not working on Win10.

I see people are still struggling with this.  There is a very simple solution.  You have to do an update to the xbox
wireless controller firmware.  You need to get the xbox app from the MS
store (it's free).  The anniversary update broke something in the firmware and there is an updated version available.  Why MS or Oculus has not conveyed this is beyond me, but I found this solution some where on reddit and it works.

Here is the app in the store:
