TrackIR and Win7 Beta

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Obviously, support for Win7 Beta is lacking, (being a beta and all). Not sure where to ask for help or advice, so I'll start here and see where it takes me. Win7 found and downloaded TrackIR4 drivers and installed just fine. On the setup menu, it tracks my head just fine. However, when I start FSX (or X-Plane, or GTR), TrackIR quits. When I close FSX, it is working again. Basically, it works all the time but FSX is not getting the information from the controller. Does anyone have TrackIR working with Win7? I've dug around some on the NaturalPoint website, but of course, they don't support this version of Windows (and I completely understand, I just NEED my TrackIR.. :) )

I currently have it working here, with Beta 64-bit, and TrackIR 4.1.036 of the software.Make sure that you are running both the TrackIR, and gaming application at the same permission levels. (Try running both as an admin, right click on the shortcut, select run as admin)

I know the TrackIR software is running as admin, not sure about the applications I'm using it in. I'll check it out. Thanks!
