joystick failure in Vista Home Premium

  lizell 14:00 18 Dec 2007

I had to eventually 'upgrade' my very low 1995 spec PC, after some happy years use! The new one is loaded with Vista Home Premium, and whilst it will allow , for exampe, Microsoft Combat Flight sim 2002 etc to install and run, my joystick Saitek ST290 Pro will not work! You cannot fly using the keyboard.Other flight sims,for example Fighter Squadron, do work with this joystick.Can anyone help me to resolve this problem? Saitek say it's the programme.Microsoft from their base in South Africa (?!) say it ain't their problem.Thankyou

This site towards the bottom suggests there are Vista drivers for your stick. click here Perhaps they can also be found on the saitek web site.
