This can be a pain.


The computer name/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/FSX/Controls/standard.xml is the correct file but I've never been able to just copy that file from one system to another.


I think it is due to the joystick assignments within the standard.xml. ie these lines:


<Name>Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals{016BA200-07F1-11E2-8002-444553540000}</Name>


The numbers and letters are a GUID and I think FSX assigns a new GUID with a new install and if they are not matching then you can get all sorts of problems.


The best I've been able to do is to take the new standard.xml from FSX and then manually copy and paste the key commands from the old to the new without touching the joystick specific commands. Then all I have to do is assign those joystick controls in FSX.
