I no longer have a Device Manager that shows what hardware I have installed.
I've tried the suggestions that I've read in this group and none of them
work. I've added "DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS" to my registry and that didn't work
either. Any suggestions.

No Items Appear in the Device Manager List When You Open It
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;311504

[[If Device Manager is showing nothing, then Its the plug and play service
that is the problem. But if the Device manager is showing the system_name
and not showing any devices in the window, then check the security
permissions on the Registry key HKLM\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\ENUM .The
SYSTEM account must have full control permissions on this key in order for
the Device manager to list all the devices in the window ]]

I found the answer in annoyances link. Someone else had just installed a
Saitek P2500 and that created the problem. In Registry after permission is
granted, click on the "advanced" key and check the box "reset permissions on
all child objects...", click apply and check yes at the security warning.
Everything is back to normal.

Thanks Wes

John,

Don't you just love it when you install something and *it* screws things up?

Keep having fun. "-)
