I just bought a $400.00 thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog joystick and throttle.  I thought I had made a correct purchase, but it seems that I actually bought a couple of paper weights.  I spent money on FSUIPC, and Addit Pro.  

I have a $20.00 joystick that I can just hook via USB and it just works...  

Hotas stuff plugged in,  Windows sees and calibrates them both, but as soon as I open FSX, nothing is displayed in the controllers box.  

If anyone knows about how to get this bleeping thing working in FSX, or am I going to have to buy another yoke and throttle quadrant for FSX?

 

Sorry for the rant, but I have been trying for 2 weeks to get this to work....

Mine works fine.

Get rid of the Thrustmaster Target software if you're using that. Just install the joystick drivers only.

As DaveG says, uninstall the software which came with it. In fact, best to go to the Windows Device Manager, select the device and right-click, and uninstall. Select drivers to be uninstalled too when the option arises. Then re-boot the system and let the device install with default USB drivers.

thanks for the advice, but I did not have any software to come with my HOTAS..  I read about some target software somewhere that was bad...  I will  take them out of Device Manager and see if that helps any.

Another interesting development, even if I say yes it still crashes my sim..

I thought from your earlier messages you were already running fSUIPC, or have you only just installed it?

Say YES, get the crash, then show me:

1. The Windows crash details from the Windows Event viewer, and
2. The FSUIPC4.LOG file from the sim Modules folder.

No Pete, I just found it yesterday..  I have been trying for a couple of weeks now to get this working.  It would have almost cheaper to buy the Cesna at the airport and fly for real.  Any way, here is the log..
