    Sorry if I'm too late to help but great if you've fixed it. I'm no expert but a lot of the hassle with installing stuff into Win10 seems to be the oversensitive security settings. Try switching off...

    New knobs for old...!

    Has anybody ever tried to swap out the rotary encoders on the Saitek radio panel and multi panel for a better quality item, or at least tried to swap the knobs for something a bit nicer looking?

    I'm sorry, I think you're confusing me with someone who knows what they're doing! I know nothing of DPI compatibility and override, I'm just a mere mortal doing his best.

    Right, I've sprung for a small (128GB) SSD just to try it out. I'll eventually go full SSD but in the meantime I'll be keeping the OS on the hard drive and loading FSX and all its accessories onto...

    I feel your pain Nikolai, I've got a huge stash that I'll probably never get around to building but I've had them so long I can't bear to part with them.

    I've run kb928080 and got the "success" message but still no joy. I don't think it needs to reset the installation counter because I've reset Windows 10 so I'm guessing the count should be zero.
