    Logitech panels and USB ports...

    Re item 2, I followed this video and it worked for me
  3. All sorted , if anyone else wants to know the solution this link enabled me to permanently turn off the Enhanced Power management which seemed to be resetting on reboot allowing windows to turn them off! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQDl-AvREZA
  4. After half the night got it all working after a driver reinstall all accept for one thing The mutipanel works in that all the buttons and switches and knobs work. BUT. The red display doesn't display the changing figures. In fact the display is blank. Ok I can watch it in the vc but I'm a bit OCD getting it all to work , any suggestions anyone ? For this testing purpose using the default Learjet . I suppose maybe the display has failed as its quite old now but I still suspect it's a software setup problem
  5. Update, its my multi panel, instrument and switch panel gone pear shaped. 4 The FIP's which always were a pain are fine! Saitek Joke & Pedals fine ! Found some software FSX_Plugin_x64_Software.exe on Logitech's website Software Version: 8.0.132.0 Last Update: 11-MAY-2017 OS: Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows 10 File Size: 3.7 MB ran it with Panels unplugged, no joy, with them plugged in no joy. do I need to uninstall something or start again from scratch? or edit some file from somewhere? Arg ;-( When FSX is running I see in task manager SaiFlightSimX.exe (32 bit) x 2 Saitek MFD File System Driver Saitek SST Profile Launcher
  6. I haven't flown for about 5 months and between then there have been several windows updates to windows 10, pugged all my Saitek Gear in and all fine except the multi panel (autopilot etc)not recognised at all ie no ding when I plug it in ,radio panel switch panel and FIP,s all ok Tried in various USB ports . Went to saitek website to ensure had the latest drivers and that page appears to be just a holding page now. If go to the product page it says no api available for it , I don't want to use spad anyone know the link for the latest sbaitek drivers ? Or has the mutipanel gone past it's sell by date in fsx now ? Any suggestions appreciated , thanks
  7. Back it up before saving i.e. Copy it away to another location so you can put it back if you mess it up edit in notepad you can save it as .txt. Then just delete the .txt extension and change it to .cfg alternativly set in Windows folder options to open .cfg files with notepad then you just open it by double clicking the file make changes close the file and say yes to save changes Back it up first !! cheers
  8. If you get the spinning cursor in Surround multi monitors when selecting a view try this for each model. I picked this up from another user on avsim (PWJT8D ) , VERY gratefiul to him and credit should be given to him just back up the panel.cfg first then try changing each view by adding this; find the brackets for the windows such as [Window00], [Window01] and so on. Within each window you'll see a line that says size_mm=1280,960 or whatever that window size may be. All you need to do is add a line right under the size_mm= line that says pixel_size=1280,960. That pixel size line is what will resize the window properly and not cause the spinning cursor. So what ever the resolution size of the size_mm= numbers are, copy those into the new line you add pixel_size=. eg on The Katana 4X the original panel.cfg had [Window00] file= size_mm=1280 window_size_ratio=1.000 position=7 visible=0 no_luminous=1 ident=MAIN_PANEL window_size= 1.000, 1.000 window_pos= 0.000, 0.000 zorder=0 I changed to [Window00] file= size_mm=1280 pixel_size=1280 window_size_ratio=1.000 position=7 visible=0 no_luminous=1 ident=MAIN_PANEL window_size= 1.000, 1.000 window_pos= 0.000, 0.000 zorder=0 etc for each [window] then MOST of the Shift 1,2,3,4 views etc dont give you the spinning cursor This has woirked 99% of the time including my A2A planes, best tip I ever found for multi monitors
  9. Ice you could buy some data recovery software I once wiped/ reformatted my Brother in laws PC when fixing a virus for him. He then told me he had some family photos on it and they were not backed up. !!! I used this company's software, downloaded the trial version to see if it would find anything , and as soon as it recovered a few phots I purchased the package. its not cheap but since then its paid for itself many times over! https://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizardpro/
  10. If I already have Orbx regions and Global for FSX, and move to Prepar3D do I have to buy them again if I want to use them in Prepar3D? I will do what is right , or are they ok to use if I uninstall from FSX, or am I allowed to use them in both. I remember when I installed them they gave me the option for fsx or Prepar3D. It all gets v confusing. Admin If I cant ask this please just delete topic. thanks

    Completely black screen in VC

    Certainly sounds like you are blacking out due to lack of oxygen. Happens when you get to high altitude in an unpressurised plane without an oxygen supply. A2A have this built into their models.
  12. Installed Creator. Fixed an issue with Track IR. Great now will fly. Had been testing with just my Xbox 360 controller as that is permanently plugged in. Connected all my Saitek hardware up . Now had a problem, every time I pushed my Saitek Throttle forward, in the virtual cockpit it would advance then return to stop. ARG ! Ok lets try other planes to see if it was a issue with the model. Same result. All planes the same. Lets try my CH Throttle (use for twin engine). ARG same result! Reboot. try again. Same result. Mixture & Prop RPM all ok, just the darn throttle keeps returning to stop even thought the hardware lever is in full thrust position. After installed Creator had also updated NVidia, could it be that? Only way to see would be revert to previous drivers. About to do that then noticed my 360 controller was upside down. Yep you guessed it , resting on a pencil and the Reverse thrust button was depressed. Do I feel a berk. Especially as the other half is now home and I've lost my flight window. Got to keep smiling
  13. This is the only problem I have had so far, would not work at all. However on the Track IR forum picked up this tip, that worked for me. Just be v careful if you edit the registry. You might want to try it without that bit first. Hope it helps someone out there https://forums.naturalpoint.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=14327 1. Remove TrackIR from add/remove programs 2. Remove NaturalPoint Drivers from add/remove programs. 3. Delete installer executable from where you saved it 4. Delete NaturalPoint folder from Program Files x86 5. Delete NaturalPoint folder from %APPDATA% location. 6. Open regedit.exe as an administrator 7. Search for and delete files labeled as "NaturalPoint" 8. Search for and delete files labeled as "TrackIR" 9. Reboot PC 10. Download new installer from website 11. Right-click and install as an administrator 12. Plug in TrackIR and verify the driver install.

    FSX Problem When Minimized

    HI Dane, I am not at home at the moment, but I think its something like Press CTRL & ENTER together, or SHIFT & ENTER that normally sorts for me. (Or clicking on it in the task window about 10 times!) If that's not the solution let me know, I have it written down somewhere at home. Might even be CTRL ALT and ENTER or CTRL SHIFT ENTER, I am almost certain ENTER is one of the Keys ! Cheers
  15. Hi Ray, I have also bent two pins, unplugging/plugging in, Fortunately managed to straighten them without breaking them off. Now If I move it anywhere it stays plugged in, and I am super careful. Glad you have it sorted Cheers Steve
