Having problems with your Microsoft SideWinder Precision Pro 2.0 Joystick ?

My Sidewinder Precision Pro on FS2004 with Windows XP has occasional (once in 6-12 months or so) partial failure. I usually get it to work by uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. But this time it doesn't want to talk. As before, all the buttons work but not the control axes or the throttle.


Answers :

This time all it took was updating Pete Dowsons FSUIP.
I have discovered that I need to be online to save the FSUIP Certificates in a "Storage area".
I have no idea what that's all about but it worked.
Maybe these Certificates are like Emission Trading Schemes... they keep someone in a job.
