Can I read input from a USB joystick in VB.NET VS2010 on Windows 7 64 bit machine. I am trying to utilize the Microsoft.DirectX.DirectInput framework but having no success. Should I be looking into the XNA framework? I ran dxdiag and it shows that DirectX 11 is installed but where are the dll references? Please Help
