Saitek X52 Pro Driver Installation Problems

Recommended Posts

After plugging my Saitek X52 Pro, I was expecting windows to automatically detect the joystick but it did not.Tried installing the driver from the cd, but it just freezes.I have tried, downloading the driver from the saitek website as well - After running it, it asks me to plug in the joystick, Doing so it says, it runs the Driver Setup screen, showing "the process may take some time".How long is sometime for ? I have kept it running for sometime.Is there any other way out ? Please Help

Hi Mark, I had the Saitek X52 pro and the software gave me nothing but problems. Does the stick show up in the FSX CP? If so, then try to calibrate the stick without the Saitek driver, that's what I did. The only thing is, I think I'm right here, if you don't install the software then you cannot take advantage of creating separate profiles, unless of course you have FSUIPC.

It does show on the FSX CP. I was trying to load the profiles from the software earlier as I use to. But the software just doesnt want to Install.Is there a guide how to create separate profiles using FSUIPC ?

Apart from the drivers which I probably downloaded direct from Saitek support I didnt use the software to config. I did spend some considerable time in FSUIPC setting up and testing the controls. Cant recall being in the registry as I tend to leave that alone.
