    I also have the same problem , my Cyborg joy stick does not work at all with MS Combat Simulator. The stick also fails to opertate correctly with MS Flight Simulators. This is depite the fact that I have re-callorated the stick using the "Settings" facility.

    I have exactly the same problem on my new dell so it must be a vista problem, maybe microsoft expect everybody to rush out and buy their hardware. I have downloaded the latest drivers from Saitek but to no avail,

    control panel and windows know that it is there and even settings in combat simulator also show that the joystick is installed and working correctly but it will not work at all in the game since replacing my old xp computer with a new all singing/dancing model which won't do the things I would like it to do. I also have a problem with my Epsom printer software since changing to vista.

    NB The joystick is a Saitek Cyborg evo wireless.

    Come back XP All is forgiven.

SOURCE: MCFS Joystick Problem

Make sure, that your Joystick is compatible with the version you are having problems with. If not, make sure that it's enabled in the configuration of MCFS. If none of those work, you will most likely have to purchase a more compatible Joystick.

SOURCE: Microsoft Combat Simulator Doesn't work

You need the drivers from

After selecting download > software, use the "Choose your Product Type) box. Select Joystick and you will find yours listed.

You need to know if you're using Vista or Vista64.

Install them, then plug your stick in. Should then work.

You may be able to do it with a virtual machine setup if windows 8 does not like the game program.
depends on the program and how compatible it is as to if it will run and also direct x may cause you grief also.
If it worked in a dos type enviroment a dos emulator may work but I am unsure it really if trial and error testing to see if it will work.

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.
