Saitek X45 Drivers Windows 10

I had the problem with my X45 calibrating fine in Windows 10, but in the sim the X & Y axes are stuck full to one side. I had this problem in DCS a few years ago and the same solution works here. Make sure you have the x45 legacy drivers from Saitek.

Saitek X45 Drivers Windows 10

When I first plugged in the X45 it worked fine. No problems at all. Calibrated in windows perfectly and gave no issues. I got IL2 CLOD running a bit but then I plugged in the rudder pedals and suddenly they stick axis would not function. All axis - joystick, throttle, sliders and rotating knobs - they are pinned to a corner. By that I mean that when you go into the joysticks properties and test, the little x indicator does not move around in sync with the joystick but rather it does not move at all and stays pinned into a corner - to the far extreme. The raw value will indicate 1. The throttle and sliders are the same. All hat switches and buttons indicate and work fine. This of course makes flying any sim impossible, no joystick no controls.

This issue has to be all about Windows 10 and an ancient Saitek system with drivers that have compatibility issues. It also has something to do with the computers registry and how a joystick is noted or listed there. I am NOT a tech guru in any sense and I honestly have no idea what a computer registry really is. I certainly have no idea how to edit one.

I have tried uninstalling the X45 and plugging it back in to try and get it to install as a default generic joystick and then just calibrate it in windows but I cannot get that to work and really do not know what I am doing. It also seems that when I plug it in and it installs itself when I look in Device Manager it shows as - Other Devices - Unknown Device. I do not know what is going on but when the X45 gets plugged in and it installs itself something goes on that screws it up from working. Driver? The X45 is not supported by Saitek for Windows 10 for sure. But it DID work initially AND it seems that it would work if installed as just a plain generic joytick/throttle. But also with the rudder pedals. Has to be a way.

You'll need to uninstall current drivers first (right click Start menu, Programs and Features, look for Saitek entries and Uninstall, just in case you're not familiar!). Run the drivers file with X45 unplugged, then plug it in when program asks. Try that for starters.

Tone71 -- thank you for the suggestion. I did uninstall everything related to the X45 I could find and then installed the drivers you linked too but that did not work. Problem remains exactly the same.

The drivers you linked too do not include X45 drivers. The X45 is no longer supported by Saitek. I did download X52 Windows 10 64byte drivers which would seem to be the closest or oldest device drivers Saitek offers.

I remain stuck and unable to fly. Close to $2500 all in on this little expedition to once again become a fighter pilot and not one flight to show for it. Incredibly frustrating. I know that it is possible for this stick to work but I have no clue at all how to make that happen. When people wonder why flight sims remain such a tiny niche market - THIS is why. You pretty much have to be a software/hardware engineer with a very deep understanding of software code and hardware configuration drivers to have an hope of getting PC games to work. It will never be mass market.

5. Right-click X45 (USB) in Device Manager and Update Driver Software; select Browse My Computer for Driver Software; select Let Me Pick From a List...; from here you should be able to select USB Input Device, which is hopefully the driver that was originally installed and working, before you installed Saitek drivers.

DriverGuide maintains an extensive archive of Windows drivers available for free download. We employ a team from around the world which adds hundreds of new drivers to our site every day. How to Install Drivers Once you download your new driver, then you need to install it. To install a driver in Windows, you will need to use a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.

Many device drivers are not updated through the Microsoft Windows Update service. If you are having trouble finding the right driver, stop searching and fix driver problems faster with the Automatic Driver Update Utility. Automatic updates could save you hours of time.

The Driver Update Utility automatically finds, downloads and installs the right driver for your hardware and operating system. It will Update all of your drivers in just a few clicks, and even backup your drivers before making any changes.

Many computer problems are caused by missing or outdated device drivers, especially in Windows 11. If your desktop or laptop is running slow, or keeps crashing or hanging, there is a good chance that updating your drivers will fix the problem.

Does it work at all or zero response? Have you tried the Logitech/Saitek test utility? I would suggest that you go to Logitech site and download the latest drivers and the test utility Logitech Downloads
