Download the correct drivers for it that fit your operating system. Install them and away you go. Type into Google "Microsoft sidewinder drivers" and follow on-screen instructions to install them

No, you don't have to install additional drivers or software.

Make sure you get the latest drivers for your soundcard. The drivers will include the software for the joystick port so its recognized properly by windows. Also you may want to go to the support page for your soundcard to see if any settings would need to be changed as well.

Sidewinder Won't Enable

I uninstalled everything to do with sound etc, removed the sound card (gameport included), cleaned up the registry, installed a new sound card with gameport and it is now working. With a new soundcard, you get up to date drivers and that, I think, was the problem. MSFFP does not like an old Aztech Soundcard. Drivers for the joystick are included in XP and seem to function OK but I doubt whether you will be able to use it in Vista. I have the handbook if anybody wants a scanned copy.

Combat flight simulator wont recognize my sidewinder precision 2 joystick on vista but it did on xp?

I am farmiliar with most flight simulators and know that you have to go to settings on the main menu the controls and select joystick, enable joystick and/or calibrate joystick. If this doesn't wok then in gameplay push "alt" on your keyboard if the task bar for flight simulator isn't at the top. Once or if it is allready there select settings and then enable joystick. If this doesn't work then call or contact or google microsoft flight simulator.
