If a controller is connected to a Windows 10 machine while the game is running, input from the controller is not registered by the character.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Connect XBox Controller to computer
  2. Open UE4 Editor (Third person template)
  3. PIE
    • Note the controller can be used to move the character
  4. Unplug / disconnect the controller
  5. Reconnect the controller

Character does not receive input after reconnecting the controller

Controllers work as plug and play on Windows 10.
