Strange issue with Steam when starting FSX

Recommended Posts

Something strange I noticed: If I start FSX:SE through the Steam client (open Steam, click play for FSX), Steam starts an install dialog like FSX isn't already installed. I cancel the install and after that, my CH yoke and pedals are no longer recognized in Windows. If I instead navigate to the FSX folder and double-click fsx.exe, FSX starts the way it should and everything works according to plan. Has anyone else seen an issue like this? There is a separate thread in this forum regarding controls suddenly not being recognized, but nothing in that thread mentioned an issue with the new install attempt when starting FSX via Steam client. This issue just started over the last week or so.

Are you sure that it's not a Steam update being installed (which happens regularly), rather than FSX?

I didn't think that was the issue, but it apparently was. I went ahead and did the install and all is well as far as that part goes. Hoping this cures the controller problems too.
