RE: Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro Joystick and Windows 8 and Windows Vista (VMWare) driver recognition

    Question

  • Dear sirs,

    I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro Joystick, and I am attempting to install it through the adapter of my laptop Toshiba, and along with that I intended to plug the USB chord into the VMWare application where I have Windows Vista where I play old games on it, I desire to use the Joystick for ease of playing some old CD-ROM games that I have installed on Windows Vista under VMWare for ease, however, I have had the trouble of trying to get the software to recognize the Joystick. It should have recognized the device that I was installing, but it did not, niether does Windows 8 (the current software that I am using) recognize the joystick when I plug it in through USB. Can you give me the steps on how to successfully get both Windows Vista, and Windows 8 to recognize the Microsoft Sidewinder Joystick in order to trouble shoot this problem, I would appreciate it very well.

    The Part no. X03-57540 , and the Product ID: 85791-579-7678597-00000

    Thanks for looking into this.

    cordially,

    Robert Gutierrez
