Not sure,it states 5.0 or higher required, so you're good there. Do you have the Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable installed? You'll need that to. There are other keymapper apps that may work. Xpadder, Pinnacle Game Profiler, AntiMicroX just to name a few. Some of them cost a few bucks if you don't mind the small fee.

Edit: If it's not too much trouble, you could possibly un-install the .net v5.013, then re-install a fresh copy to see if that resolves the problem for DS4Windows not recognizing it's on the pc already.

Ok, got this to work for the most part so leaving some notes for others:

.net wasn't working because I had installed the x86 version instead of the x64 version. Not sure why that's the case as it seems I'm on x86, but it did work.

So the good news is that now I can kick in-game by pulling down on the right stick, but I cannot seem to get up to register on the right stick as my kicks are all dubs. Is there a lag? Nothing else seems to lag.

Also, it seems DS4Windows will override the PlayStation 3 icons plugin I'm using via Texmods. I wish that wasn't the case, so I guess I have some more controller sorting to get through.

Enough tinkering for now as my break is over and need to get back to work!

Glad you made progress. See if you can recalibrate your analog sticks in windows.

Got it all sorted! The PC I use is inside of a cabinet and I forgot to open the doors which seems to impact Bluetooth. Either that or I've noticed (with my wireless keyboard too) that sometimes a water bottle in the way will interfere.

And I also fixed the issue with the PS icons by switching the profile to the XBOX-->PS3 one. PS5 controller works perfectly now.
