    I have combat flight simulator WWII europe series, It loads but does not
    regonize my wingman extreme. I d/l drivers from logitec but still would not
    work with joystick. I checked for updates with microsoft but could not find
    any for this program. I do believe I did see some upgrades for combat flight
    simulator 3.

  4. Me too! CFS WWII Europe worked fine with XP. It loads with vista, but
    responds erratically to my (German) keyboard inputs and fails to
    recognise either MS Sidewinder Precision 2 joystick or Logitech Extreme
    3D Pro. Does this render my CFS WWII dustbin material?

    Yes, there is a patch for CFS 3.
    http://www.microsoft.com/games/combatfs3/downloads.aspx
    It says on this page that you MUST use DirectX 9.0
    And while your at it, you might run the DirectX diagnostic -
    Start/Run/Dxdiag to make sure what version of DirectX you are using and
    whether it's working properly.
    And lastly, is your joystick a "Wingman Extreme" or a "Wingman Extreme
    Digital"? Analog joysticks plug into the 'gameport' (serial port) on your
    sound card, whilst a digital joystick plugs into your USB port.
    Good luck,
