if you are running windows 10 then i would suggest you try this

also if you are not running EG 0.5 i suggest you upgrade. EG 0.5 has better support for Windows 10

I am not all that knowledgeable about the embedded versions. but it could be that the embedded version does not have the bits and pieces that the joystick plugin is looking for. it's kind of like windows 7 thin PC not having .net on it. or the means to even install .net on it.. which made windows thin PC pretty useless. I do not know what is different between windows xp and xp embedded. if you run it on a normal version of windows XP is the issue still there?

the _dxjoystick is a file that should be located in your eventghost installation it should be in lib\27\site-packages or lib26\site-packages folder in your eventghost installation folder. if it is not there then you can obtain this file by reinstalling eventghost or by grabbing it from the source zip file for the version you have installed.
