You can enumerate all your devices using IDirectInput8::EnumDevices : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/microsoft.directx_sdk.idirectinput8.idirectinput8.enumdevices%28v=vs.85%29.aspx


An then there is code here for finding out which devices are XInput devices (XBox controllers): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee417014%28v=vs.85%29.aspx


But I don't see any way to know which index (0 to 3) is associated with each XBox controller that is enumerated. Does anyone know how to do this?


This question has been asked before, but I didn't find a final answer. Here's one thread: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/503988-xbox-controller-index/
