I have a Windows 7 pc, and i installed the driver of microsoft Xbox controller. If I only use 1 controller can i use it without the receiver?


No, you cannot do this

It must be a WIRED controller, like the one shown here

The cable on the xbox 360 wireless controllers is merely for charging, it doesn't pass input from the controller.

    It is worth noting that you can use a wireless controller if you buy the special kit that Microsoft made for PCs, but this is expensive and honestly not worth it when you can get a wired controller for $25 or so. Nov 18 '12 at 1:54
