I've had combat flight sim (Europe) for years and my cyborg 3D joystick has always worked fine. However with my new computer running windows vista the joystick simply wont work. I've configured it in control panel- game controllers and the computer sees it and everything works fine. The flight sim just doesn't see it. I've looked on the internet and this is a very common problem but no-one has come up with a solution. As this is an old Microsoft game I would have thought there would be a simple patch. I have all the latest drivers for my stick.

Is it an old parralel port joystick? if so, microsoft has no support for it, there is a work around for 32 bit vista, but Im having trouble finding it.
