All methods of controller connectivity are supported with Zen, including wired (hard-wired or USB cable) and wireless (Wireless Adapter or Bluetooth).
If you wish to use your controller on a Windows PC, connect the Zen to your PC using the provided short micro-USB cable, connect your controller to the A2 or A3 USB port, or pair wirelessly to the Zen using the Wireless instructions in Step 3. Open Zen Studio and select the Device Tab. The Emulator Output Protocol in Zen Studio must be set to PC/MOBILE or the PC will not detect that a controller is available for gaming.
Windows has a built-in game controller test app where you can check if your controller is being detected correctly using Cronus Zen. Simply run the command 'joy.cpl' and the app will open.
You can test and calibrate your controller using this tool. You will notice that the Zen is detected as an Xbox 360 controller; this is by design and entirely correct. If the app does not detect your controller, you need to check your settings and USB cables.
