I would create a Zendesk ticket asking them how to delete it. Perhaps they can even delete it themselves from the cloud.

I have had enough of "customer service" and "technical support" pretenders for one week, buddy. When my will has returned to deal such people I will for sure reach out to them. For now, unless someone else has any other ideas, I shall put up with it. As long as I have deleted the assignments in one of the controllers there doesn't seem to be a conflict.

It has to go though. I can't stand the sight of it every time I go in there. It's messy and a sign that something isn't right.

I have the same with my Velocity Rudder, do my best to ignore the second one.

Seems no way of removing it.

May I ask those with the same pedals that have this issue which operating system you are on. I didn't have this when on Windows 10. Now I'm on 11 it's there.

Clutching at straws but I'm curious.

Still on Win 10, had them in August, the second controller issue was there more or less from the start possibly after unplugging from computer and plugging into a USB Hub. But not 100% sure that’s when the second one popped up.

My son has the Velocity One Yoke/Throttles.  The throttles plug into the yoke and can't be used independently - so one device.   But they too appear as two entries.  Maybe a Velocity thang?

That makes sense if you have two products linked but I only have the pedals and it never did this before a windows reinstall so it's not a thing that is 100% going to happen. I'm unsure what the trigger or cause is. It's a bit of a head scratcher, I must say.

1 Get a decent PC search app (the one built into Windows is basic, I don't use it). Freeware or Payware.

2 Search for file names starting with inputprofile_ like shown in Alvega's message.

3 Each of these files can be opened and read with Windows notepad. The text will tell you which file goes with which controller.

4) Move the file out of the folder, you may have to move it back if you moved the wrong one.

5) Write down the culprit file's name because it will still be in the cloud and may return later.

6) Reboot MSFS and check.

Thank you, I'll give that a go later today.
