Default Windows Vista x64 and enabling support for the Black Wireless XBOX 360 Controller?

I just purchased a new XBOX 360 Wireless joy-stick black. I also downloaded the latest drivers for the hardware device. How do I enable it for games like
Gears of War? I'm assuming that the joy-stick will only work with Games for Windows or will it work for any game besides that? I have not been able to get it to work for anything yet and would likw some
direction in this area please. I need to know how to enable first off then make it work for other games on my computer.

they are sold separately as well. black controllers don't come with it.

this is first time that i come a cross someone that thinks that a wireless device (transmitter) will simply work without a receiver.

I didn't see this in retail stores fool! I looked the day I purchased the wireless joy-stick so I assumed it would only work via USB but now I know I'll need the wireless gaming receiver for windows. I'll have it in a couple of days for sure.

Mate, I've found people that think that wireless internet works without an ISP. People need wires to stay sane.
