Using a wireless XBox 360 controller on a PC

I have heard that it is not possible to use an XBox 360 play and charge kit as a normal controller on Windows since it just charges the batteries but still connects over wifi.

On the other hand in my windows 7 devices view I see "Xbox 360 Wireless Controller via Play & Charge Kit"

Is it still possible to use this as a normal USB controller?

It is not possible. You would need to buy the xbox 360 wireless receiver.
