WARNING ABOUT KB3213986 and Saitek FIP

Recommended Posts

Just ot pass on my experince of this update.  Had a nightmare,  my FIP panels failed to work.  Restoring my system prior to this update all worked fine.  After many attempt I determined the following.



I dont normalluy plug the FIP in at PC boot, only when I load up FSX.  never had a problem doing this.


Now the only way I can get the FIP to work since this latest update  is to have them plugged in BEFORE booting PC.  Seem ok if I do that but not if have been using the PC for other activies and then decide to plug them in to use FSX.


iI may be something I did,  but after 4 hours of restoring  ( 3 times)  this is the conclusion I have come to


Hope this info helps anyone else who has this problem,  but it might just be me!

Final update.  Left the Windows 10 update on.  Uninstalled all Saitek FIP's & drivers.


Reinstalled the  Windows 7 drivers off the DVD that came with the FIP .  All now works fine again !

Not going to risk updating to the 10 drivers, now it works leaving it alone !

Only use the two FIP's for  IAS  and  VSI
