CH Products Drivers - Windows 10 Issue

Recommended Posts

I have been having Windows 10 crashes at various times but mostly when I tried to download a few specific programs. I noticed that in the brief note of crash there was a CH Products SYS file was causing the problem. I then unloaded all CH Products software and cleaned them from the registry. Since then the same downloads that caused crashes now work as the should.

 

I remember that I had a difficult time trying to find drivers when my yoke acted strange. They were on some odd site but a long trail from the CH site took me there so it just looked like another CH messy attempt at software.

 

Does anyone know of an "official" site fro CH drivers?

Hi Dick,

 

Yeah - just to commiserate - had some issues with Win10 too - seemed CH was giving me OS crashes when I tried to update other hardware drivers - last message before dump seemed to be CH something... I removed CH - then installed the drivers - then installed CH again... It worked but there is something in Win10 that CH doesn't like or vice versa...

 

Regards,

Scott

Hi there,

 

My CH Eclipse Yoke works great in my config, with Win10 AU driver: I only tried once to use CH Control Manager but it really messed up my (CH Yoke) controls settings in P3D.

 

Cheers,

I learned long ago not to mess with CH software. I run W10 Pro (latest version) and use three pieces of CH hardware (throttle, yoke and pedals) and all I did after the initial W10 installation is plug them in. I don't know what happened 'behind the scene' but they work flawlessly.

Indeed JJ, same here.

 

In my case, just uninstalled CH Control Manager, rebooted and everything was back to nominal. I calibrate the Yoke via P3D UI and no probs at all.

 

Happy flying,

All my CH products work fine with the CH Control Manager, and includes many macros and extensive functions. This is on a system that started out as Win7, upgraded to Win8, then Win8.1, then Win10, and now Win10Anni, I've got FSX, FSX:SE and P3D v2 and P3d v3 installed all still work with the CH setup no issues. The problem I see mostly is that a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\CH Products\CMCtlCtr.exe" should be placed in the ..\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder. The CH Manager must be configured, save the config and that configuration is "downloaded" to the driver setup. When the system starts up the CMCtlCtr.exe configures it automatically.

First thing I did when I got P3D was ditch the CH software.

My friendly comment is provided for those that would like to investigate the use of the extensive features of the CH software. Those that could not understand how to use it should have another look, it's not too hard to use.

Really interesting Steve,

 

Will give it a try with your solution, and see WH.

 

Thank you for the tip.

Hi Steve,

 

Concur - I've been amazed at some of the things you can do with Control Manager - it's a very powerful little language - hang around the "Stickworks" (if it's still around) website for any length of time and you will see... Most people only scratch the surface of its use...

 

Regards,
Scott

I have only ever relied on Win 10 drivers, along with P3D and FSUIPC to set up my CH Products yoke, pedals and throttle quad. Curious now, what kind of functionality might I be missing out on by not installing the CH Control Manager software?

You can use it across all your sims and keep profiles for each, you don't need to update it with the sim updated.
