I am trying to reinstall my Saitek/ Logitech radio panel, switch panel, and multi-panel. I am using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with FSX - Acceleration. I successfully downloaded the software for the panel test and the panels all all working fine. However, there are problems with the drivers. I downloaded the drivers from the Saitek/ Logitech site and installed the drivers a number of times but the screens are still all blank. I was considering uninstalling the drivers to reinstall them, but I haven't the foggiest idea about how to do that. Any assistance in troubleshooting this problem will be appreciated.
See if this helps you.
Thank you, RadarMan.
Do you know where I can find the most up-to-date version of SimConnect for FSX, by the way?
I guess this is the latest.
Your dilemma with the Saitek/Logitech radio panel, switch panel, and multi-panel drivers sounds challenging, but let's try to iron out this situation one step at a time.
The root of your problem seems to revolve around the driver software not properly linking up with the panels. It's vital to ensure that the driver is compatible with your specific hardware and your Windows 7 Professional 64-bit platform.
To assist you with troubleshooting:
Sometimes, the issue can stem from FSX not recognising the panels even though the drivers are correctly installed. In that case, we have another course of action to consider - updating SimConnect. FSX uses SimConnect (a part of FSX's SDK - Software Development Kit) to allow add-ons and external hardware, such as your panels, to interface with it.
From my knowledge, you can find the most recent version of SimConnect within the SDK which comes with the FSX Deluxe Edition or FSX: Acceleration (which you mentioned you have).
To locate this:
After these steps, check your Saitek/Logitech panels again to see if they're functioning properly. Remember, the simulation world often requires a bit of tweaking, but the satisfaction when everything works smoothly is well worth it.
