Thanks, installing XP would be simplier than trying to figure out the CH Control software...

You shouldn't be losing keyboard assignments. On my computer, they are saved as: All Users>AppData>Roaming>Microsoft>FSX>Controls>Standard.xmlArtNow flying with: Biostar TF560-A2+, Athlon 64X2-6000+, 4GB RAM, Geforce 8800GTS-320MB, 500W PSU, 250GB HD, FSX (SP1-SP2), Vista Home Premium

I agree the CH software can be a bear but it's worth learning. I got lots of help on their forum. One of the things you can do is assign 2 functions to each button or switch. Useful for bringing up different views, pausing Track IR and so on.

I use XP, and my keyboard assignments disappear every so often. I finally set up a timed macro to back up the file of assignments regularly.MD

Talking of controls, every now and again I still get a CTD caused by 'controls.dll'I have to delete the controls/standard.xml and let the sim rebuild another one each time it happens.Very annoying......
