maybe you need different drivers since its the regular controller, because I researched it myself the other day and it is possible with a regular one.

Those drivers are the best 360 controller drivers available.

edit: PC and xbox360 edition controllers are identical hardware, the only difference is that the pc edition comes with a driver cd
Are you using a play and charge kit to connect a wireless controller? Because that doesn't work, it must be wired. Get the drivers from M$, not another site. Also, you need to use a program such as Xpadder to map the inputs to keyboard keys.
Go into control panel, system, hardware, device manager.

Is there a bit at the bottom that says "Microsoft Xbox Peripherals" or something to that effect?

If not, the drivers aren't installed properly. Instead, there should be a device under "Other Devices" but I can't remember what it'l be called... Right click on it, and click update drivers. That should do it
