Sidewinder force feedback wheel-problem setting up

  charro 15:40 19 Jul 2004

Hi , I wonder if anyone can advise me where to go to resove this problem
I,ve had a Microsoft sidewinder force feedback wheel working perfectly on my old computer, running windows 98. I have just got a new comp running windows XP,when i put installation disc (v4.0) into the new comp,message comes up saying software designed for windows 98 and somethings might not work correctly. I've been to microsoft site and could not find any driver or software updates ,unless i'm looking in the wrong place. Direct x is the latest version 9.0.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated
Many thanks

Ignore the warning message and install. My son has had MS FFB wheel on this Mesh with XP for two years and it has never been a bit of trouble.
