Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. Me and a friend of mine run an online gaming community and love our racing games, and quite a few of us own the Sidewinder Force Feedback Wheel including myself, we have all trawled the net for a solution to this issue since the release of Windows 7 but unfortunately there is no solution, Microsofts answer to this is ‘buy a new wheel’ which me and my friends are not going to do, we love our original ones!
