Can anybody please tell me if there is any progress made with regard to Windows 7 compatibility of the Dual Strike and its associated sidewinder software. I had it working fine in WindowsXP - even with SP3 installed !!
I have seen the previous answer to this question which frankly - is sadly incorrect. Although the dual strike - (being a USB device) - does install automatically (sort of ) in windows 7 - it is NOT recognised when games are opened. I can not assign ANY of the buttons to actions from within the game set up menu (Dark Void game as a good example) that is to say - it doesn't work.
Furthermore - sure I can install the sidewinder software in compatibility mode - but thats where it ends. When I try to open sidewinder central to assign keystrokes to buttons - I get a message saying " there was a problem that may be due to low system resources - try closing other programs and try again. " Then when I try and close sidewinder - I get another message saying " Windows host process (Rundll32 ) has stopped working.
Now obviously a programmable games controller that - a. games do not recognise and b. you cannot programme the keys - is sort of redundant isn't it.
I'm afraid changing the compatibilty settings either manually or using the troubleshooter has absolutely no effect.
Does anybody have a solution?
Kindest regards to you all
