Default Windows 10 - Generic USB Interface Dongle No Longer Working

I have two generic eBay/HobbyKing dongles - they look pretty much identical and both have worked fine in the past.

They both show up in Game Controllers in Windows 10 as

SAILI Simulator --- XTR5.5+G2+FMS Controller

One has a Blue LED and the other a Red LED but otherwise they are identical.

Just tried to use them and neither work. Previously in windows 10 games controller setup you could see the stick and buttons, check their operation and calibrate.

Now 'Test' windows which would normally show the sticks and the buttons is empty. Going to settings and the 'calibrate' button is greyed out.

It is two much of a coincidence that both have failed at exactly the same time, so I wonder whether a Windows update has stopped them working.

Anyone else seeing this problem.

Cheers,

Nigel

Well this is odd.

I decided to ignore what I was seeing and launch ACCURC regardless.

Both dongles are working fine.

But they are no longer showing up in the Windows USB Game Controller set up.

Just to double check, I plugged in an XBox controller and that shows up fine.

So something has stopped the SAILI controllers showing up properly in windows.

Cheers,

Nigel

Also been doing some googling and it seems that some time last year a windows patch stopped some USB simulator interfaces that present themselves as game controllers from working.

They were even worse because the likes of FrSky transmitters failed to show at all.

I have a half-way house where the SAILI is showing but features like testing sticks and buttons and calibrating are not working.

Cheers,

Nigel

Windows had got its knickers in a twist.

Find the controller in 'Devices and Printers'
Right Click >> Remove Device
Unplug USB Dongle
Plug USB Dongle back in

All working now

Cheers,

Nigel
