Saitek Pro52 Not being recognized in Prepar3D


Recommended Posts

Ok, here we go! To sum it up, Windows 8 has a bug where it disconnects the joystick once in a while. Fine! So I was then told that FSUIPC would fix it. So I bought FSUIPC4, then updated it to 4.859n to make sure that the registration works. So far so good!

Then I was told to use FSUIPC to assign the controls and then delete the controls in Prepar3D! Well, I did delete the controls in Prepar3D and now it doesn't recognize the josystick at all, even after starting up.

My questions:

1.) How do get my Saitek Pro52 to recognize within Prepar3D (it works fine in the game controller settings).

2.) How do I assign the controls using FSUIPC, so that when this stupid Windows 8 bug comes in, my controls will still work!

Thank you very much!

Well, sorry, but I didn't tell you that. I know from some reports here that some folks have had success with joystick devices not disconnecting when assigned in FSUIPC, but I don't know if that applies to Saitek things.

I don't think you delete anything in P3D, only disable controllers -- one setting to change.

Maybe there's some Saitek software running? Or their driver is installed incorrectly? Probably best not to use any of their software.

I think your best bet is to ask in the Saitek support forum. I'm afraid I cannot support their devices myself.

Regards

Pete
