HI All,
I'm running Win2000 Pro (NTFS) and my system will not let me install the software to Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro. Is this due to my file system? Is anyone else using the software sucessfully with Win2000? I see at that it should be compatible but I'm having no success. Thanks.

  1. No, the problem is not due to your file system, but a compatibility issue with the software. Microsoft has issued a statement about the problem, and it appears that there will be no update.

    "<font color=red>This section applies to you if you own one of the following SideWinder game port devices:

    SideWinder Force Feedback Pro
    SideWinder Precision Pro
    SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel (game port version only) SideWinder Game Pad
    SideWinder 3D Pro

    The SideWinder software (version 3.02) included with these SideWinder game port devices is designed to work with Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98. If you have Windows 2000 or Windows XP, the operating system includes device drivers for these game controllers listed above, so the device will function properly on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP. However, the accompanying SideWinder software (version 3.02 or any previous version) will not function, so you will not be able to create profiles for these devices using the SideWinder software on Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Microsoft is not planning to update the SideWinder software (version 3.02) for game port devices."</font color=red>
