Saitek Throttle Quadrant...Prop Control For "Flaps"

I have a Saitek Yoke and Throttle Quadrant controls and I use to use the centre control (Prop Control?) on the trottle quadrant for my Flaps settings...
I had to do a system recovery back to factory settings last week, on my computer and since doing this recovery I cannot seem to set this control for Flaps control any longer...
I use to go to FSX "controls/buttons" and set all the switches and buttons on my Saitek Yoke and Trottle Quadrant for my preferences, but now when I try to program this "Flaps Extend Incrementaly" & "Flaps Retract Incrementaly" using the middle control, they "Cancel" each other out...???
Does anyone have any idea as to how to get this trottle quadrant middle control to work as a flaps control again...???
Thanks for any help or suggestions as I`m puzzled as to way I can`t assign this control for flaps...???

I don't know about the saitek throttle quadrant, but I know that with my saitek joystick there is program software that is intended to work with the joystick, and with it you can program various controls to act as either a toggle, button, or axis.

Yes it does come with software but it doesn't work with vista, I have the same problem but I want to use the slider for the spoilers.

You sure there's not vista software? Check out their website -
