FSUIPC not recognising hardware


Recommended Posts

So I installed FSUIPC onto my PC after a clean install of FSX. I am running windows 8.1 so I rely on FSUIPC a lot to be able to fly with my hardware. But just now, after I assign controls and axis' and fly a flight straight away, it's all fine. As soon as I restart my FSX it forgets them and won't recognise my controller even though my computer does. Even if I am still in the flight staight after I do the binding, and then take the USB out and back in, it forgets it.

Can someone please help because I am not able to fly with this problem?

Regards Thomas.

I never understood why this might be the case, because FSUIPC reads the joystick devices in exactly the same way as FS.

Hmm. Sounds like the sorts of problem many folks complain about with Windows 8. Maybe Win10 will fix it. I'm sticking with Win 7 for sure!

 

Sorry, I can't help really. As I said, I don't even understand how using FSUIPC can help with such problems in the first place.
