Saitek Multi and Switch Panlels wont connect to FS2004


Recommended Posts

I am in desperate need of some help. I bought the Pro Yoke, Multi and Switch pabels because i was told it would work with FS2004. I try to connect manually, but it says it cannot connect with FSUIPC, but it connects with my Active Sky program and everything else without a problem.

The yoke is simply a standard joystick device with buttons and is recognised as such by FSUIPC just as it is in FS and any other program using joysticks. There is no "connection" needed. I'm afraid I don't know anything about the other things though. You need to go to Saitek support. I've never heard of any hardware "connecting" to Active Sky though -- that's a weather program for FS, not a hardware interface. What does it od, move the clouds around? ;-)

Regards

Pete

I meant that Active Sky can interface with the FSUIPC to create the weather conditions in the sim. My Yoke and dual throttle quadrants work fine, the multi and switch panel just wont interface with FSUIPC.

No Peter Andydigital wrote about the SPAD program I forgot the "ADMIN" thing It makes the Saitek pannel work with FSUICP and FS9 the FSfollow works too with the opon as "ADMIN" with FS9. Thanks for replying you are always fast your FSUICP and WIDEFS have always been a profit for flight sim users more computer setting pannels etc. Keep up the good work.

I see. If you run FS "as administrator" then any program linking to FSUIPC also has to be run that way. Windows prevents programs of different privilege levels exchanging data with each other via memory sharing, which is how the link works.

Generally it should not be necessary to run any of these programs "as administrator", but I know such tricks are used for FS9 if it is (mistakenly, in my view) allowed to install into the protected "Program Files (x86)" folder of Windows, which is where it goes by default.
