Unhappy Usb n64 controller works in windows 8?

Well, I just bought a Retrolink USB N64 controller and received it in the mail today. I want to first say that the product CLEARLY STATES that it should work on any PC or any mac. I try to use it on my Windows 8 PC and it doesn't even recognize it, even after installing the disc that came with it. I tried plugging it in different ports but not even that helps. So I used my friend's Windows 7 laptop and I ran through the setup. And it worked perfectly on Project64.
So can anyone help me solve this problem, are there any specific drivers I need because I am honestly furious over this. Anyways, if you can help, thanks.

The issue is actually Windows 8...and it is especially if you have Windows 8.1 where Microsoft totally borked its own software drivers for input.

Before i proceed, is this the MayFlash adapter? or is it an n64 controller with a USB cable?
