Lost Controllers After Changing Windows

Recommended Posts

Picked up T7 a couple of weeks ago and its my new plane of choice for sure!  Had some problems but found answers here in the forums for all but one bug.


While flying if I jump to another window – outside of FXS -- and back to flight sim I lose my controls.  Using Saitek Pro yoke and combat rudder pedals.  If I go to the drop down\ set up\controllers they are no longer listed there and I can’t find a way to get them back without ending the flight and starting over.


I’ve downloaded fresh drivers and reinstalled. Checked all I can think of.  I have the PMDG 747 have no trouble with that at all.  The default aircraft are fine as well.  Only the T7 has this anomaly.


Its on a Windows 8 system, but FSX has been fine so far.  I really want to fix it so I can grow into more addons and Vatsim flying.


Thanks in advance for any help you offer.

Thanks much! Cant understand how I missed that information after hours of searching.


Tested using FSUIPC4 for controllers and not sure as it seems not to have a nice fluid motion.


Trying to get windows 8.1 upgrade on...having problems with see if that will fix the problem. If not I will set up my SSD with Windows 7 and leave it as a dual boot.


I *hate* windows 8 any way.


Thanks again!
