Thanks tam 210 for your feedback. I do have a registered copy of FSUIPC I will give it a try. Did not think of it actually.
G'day Simmers I recently purchased the Saitek X55 and when I tried mapping the slider switch and the mini joystick on the throttle unit to FSX functions, FSX does not recognize the input when I activate the switches. I thought had a faulty unit until I tried the X55 with Prepar3D and the switches are indeed recognized and working. I have my slider set up as air brake and it works perfectly. Appreciate any advice.
