Usually, Windows will find and automatically install the necessary drivers when you plug your game controller into your computer.

Will this work on vista in Flight Pro Sim


Your Joystick ( as long as the right drivers are installed) should work with MPS.
If it is incompatible be sure to run it in compatibility mode with the stated compatible OS on the game or joystick.

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.

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.
