No, you don't have to install additional drivers or software.
Check the Joystick settings in the control panel.

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.

This time all it took was updating Pete Dowsons FSUIP.
I have discovered that I need to be online to save the FSUIP Certificates in a "Storage area".
I have no idea what that's all about but it worked.
Maybe these Certificates are like Emission Trading Schemes... they keep someone in a job.

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.

Microsoft's Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Driver


Sorry to report that there is no driver for this stick that will allow the feedback to work with Win XP. I wanted to cry when I first found this out. I've been searching since the mid 90's for a work around for this. We can send a man to the moon and back on less than 1 meg of ram. But someone can not get this stick to work properly with Win XP?

That REALLY SUCKS!!!
