Question about Saitek X45 Flight Control System (J24C) Joystick
Upon downloading the file six times from the actual saitek website, I attempted to search for fixes. This site came up; but I found no fixes for this particular error. At each attempt to install, I receive this message: The contents of this file cannot be unpacked. The executable you are attempting to run has been corrupted. Please obtain another copy of the file, verify its integrity, and try again.
I even tried downloading the XP version and the Vista version. I receive the same error message on each one.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
