Issues running SideWinder Central 4.0 on Windows 10 - Controller Settings error

Postby mrpenguinb » 2019-5-15 @ 07:40

I recently got myself a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Steering Wheel (USB) and installed the software on Windows 10. Sadly it doesn't work properly but works fine on Windows XP. Not sure if it is even possible to get the software working. Otherwise I will just use vJoy for the steering wheel.

The error message is:
There was an internal error that may be due to low system resources.
Please close this program, as well as other open programs, and try again.
If the problem persists, your computer may be msising necessary components of this program. Please reinstall the software.


NOTE: This error message ONLY occurs when viewing the properties of the Steering Wheel.
So in order to troubleshoot(replicate) this issue, you need the actual hardware to do so.

Already looked at all those articles before you mentioned them :lol:
Oh well, thanks for helping.
One thing to note about the steering wheel is that it doesn't appear exactly as it does in Windows XP, at least with all the virtual keyboard drivers. Windows overrides the drivers, so I wonder how I would go about overriding them....
