Saitex Pro Flight Yoke in Windows 8.1

Recommended Posts

I installed the 64-bit driver for the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke (Win 8.1).  The product has (3) modes, i.e., each button can have (3) functions.  When installing the driver, I tested the (3) modes as part of the installation process, all (3) modes work well.  When I go to FSX | Settings | Controls | Calibrate | Properties, the display does not show the (3) modes (no multi Modes display).  It's as if the hardware only has (1) mode so this causes a problem between the Saitek Profiles and FSX.  I know the (3) modes are supposed to displayin FSX from my prior configuration of FSX (Vista 32-bit).

 

Has anyone seen this before ?  The installed drivers are from the Saitek site downloaded a few minutes ago.

 

Thanks in advance for any help,

Zachlog

I've never installed any drivers for mine, Windows recognises the yoke and has its own drivers and these work fine.

Thanks Ian.  I guess my next question is how do I remove the Saitek driver so that I can go back to using the native Win 8.1 driver ?

 

Thanks

You can do this easily in the device manager. Go to system in the control panel then click on device manager.

 

You can either disable the driver or uninstall it here by right clicking on the device.

Ian,

 

I should have been clearer in my post.

 

I did go to Device Manager but under the category "Sound, video and game controllers", I don't see anything that suggests Saitek thus my question.  I also checked the other categories, nothing for Saitek.  Is there a way of zeroing in on the driver ?  A search, whatever.

 

Thanks,

Zachlog

Thanks again.

 

I had checked the Human Interfaces category but I forgot that in order to see the driver, the device must be attached so this solved this problem.

 

I disabled the driver, rebooted and then reattached the device but FSX does not see it.  As a matter of fact with the Saitek driver disabled, the Pro Flight icon in the system tray in the lower right of the desktop does not appear so I re-enabled the driver and I am back to where I was.  If you have any other ideas, please pass them on.

 

Thanks Again,

Zachlog
