Problems downloading plugins for Logitech radio and multi panel units

Recommended Posts

I am using Windows 7 for FSX. I have been trying to fix my Saitek-Logitech radio panel/ multi panel issues for a very long time! The folks at Logitech recommended I uninstall the current panel plugins and install the new ones from their site. I did not see an option to uninstall the plugins in the Saitek folder.  I went into the Programs and Features area on my computer and uninstalled the Saitek software for the radio and multi panels. I then downloaded the FSX_Plugin_x64_Software_8.0.144.0 software for the panels and the Flight_Panels_x64_Software software for the panels' test page. The new downloaded test page is showing that both panels are working fine. However, both panels are now totally blank and nonoperational when I start FSX! Is there something missing here....?

You need to make sure you have the right entry in exe.xml, otherwise you need to start the panel driver manually. (Can't be more specific until I turn on my FSX PC.)

You are highly likely to be encountering Windows Advanced Power Management.  Windows lowers the power sent to some devices. Saitek devices are known to experience this issue.  Let me see once again if I can find and point toward one of several topics right here on this Hardware Controllers forum right here on Avsim.  Check back in a bit and I hope to have added a link that may ease your pain.

OK. Here is a link. Click the line below. Hope it fixes your Saitek issues.
