Question about Saitek CYBORG EVO FORCE Joystick

1 Answer

Can't get it to work in vista

Using Vista Ultimate 32 bit OS.

The install CD that came with the stick is only good for WXP.

I went to the Saitek site and downloaded the Vista 32 drivers for the stick.

When I click on the driver file and run the install wizzard I get stuck at the "plug your device" step.The "next" tag stays grayed after plugging the power and USB wires as prompted. I hear the "boing" sound of a device being plugged but Vista does not seem to acknowledge it
Interestingly enough I am able to use an older MS Sidewinder Forcefeedback 2 stick even though it does not appear listed under "game devices" in the device manger after plugging it.
I have contacted Saitek support and they keep telling me to download the Vista drivers from their site,which I did repeatedly and always with the same result noted above.

They just want you to buy a brand new one. Don't do it. If they can't help you, Make the controller RMA on their site, which means, they are forced to by law to send you a brand new one once they receive the controller from you. BTW, this is free, Except some companies, charge S and H. Good Luck. Please rate my solution.

P.S. Try it on another PC with XP, if you own one. If not, try a friends PC.

Drivers for M5641


There is no difference whatsoever between drivers for Vista Home, Vista Ultimate or, indeed, any version of Vista. They are all the same Operating System just with bits enabled or disabled accordingly.

Please can you clarify exactly which OS you have. Is it 32 bit or 64 bit? You will almost certainly have the 32-bit version and need to go to the appropriate page. 64-bit drivers will not work with 32-bit Os's and vice versa.

Just in case, here is the link for the drivers... yoiu just need to choose the exact OS remembering the 32 bit option (assuming you do have a 32-bit OS)

I have just built a new custom PC and my new XFX GTS 250 will not work with my Vista Ultimate 64 bit OS but it will work on my Dad's Dell XPS with Vista Ultimate 32 bit! Also his Nvidia 8800 GTX will work...


Your device driver have been tampered with. Check the internet for the driver of your device, download it and install it on your system. You can also use the CD that came with it if any.

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Are they the same - windows vista 32 bit platform edition and windows vista home basic 32 bit sp1


Yes and no. Think of 'platform' as a general header when looking at operating architectures (there are different types) and Vista choices.
Vista choices under the 'platform' 32-bit are:
• Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit
• Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
• Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
• Windows Vista Business 32-bit
• Windows Vista Enterprise 32-bit

Another example of the "64-bit platform" and Vista choices are:

• Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista


yes
if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.
