VDX_X64 doesnt show controller is connected

Hello i have searched the forum, im running win10 64 op, i am trying to emulate a PS4 controller with a generic PC usb controller to remote play to my PS4, when i first installed ViGEmBus 1.16.116, and ran VDX it worked great, i noticed there were programs running i didn't need open so started closing them, VDX crashed and now wont recognize there is a controller connected, i have uninstalled reinstalled ViGEmBus, restarted the PC, uninstalled/reinstalled controller driver, that didn't work still doesn't recognize the the controller is connected,what would cause it not to see the controller? any info or help would be greatly appreciated.
