Question about Microsoft SideWinder Precision Pro 2.0 Joystick

Open Question

I installed my Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick on my Windows 7 laptop and it automatically installed quickly, but the calibration is way off. You pull all the way back and you're barely able to clear the runway. I see that it says this thing doesn't need calibration, but something needs to happen for this thing to work right. Do you have any suggestions?

SOURCE: drivers for windows vista 64 bit

I am sorry, but I have to tell you that the Sidewinder II is not Vista 64 bit compatible.

Here Microsoft page for Vista compatibility, when they say unknown it means it does not work on Vista 64.

I hope this can save you some time.

How to install joystick on win7


Do not try to install the drivers that came with your joystick. Instead, try connecting it and letting Windows 7 detect it (and install the drivers automatically) from Microsoft's site.

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.

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.
