It’s not always easy, when installing software which is not up to date. So I had to do several tries, to get this up and running, but it has been worth every minute…
First of all install the saitek drivers (from website for win7 64bit, not the winXP-drivers from the cd) and check the software-entrys from windows, if the „Saitek DirectOutput Vxxx“ has been installed too. If not, go to the „C:WindowsTempSaitekSaitek_X52Pro_Flight_Controller_SD6_64_Drivers0000013“-folder and run the DirectOutput.msi.
After this check the following directories:
1) C:Program Files (x86)SaitekDirectOutput
If there is no file called DirectOutputX86.dll in the folder, copy the DirectOutput.dll and rename it, so that both filenames exists.
2) C:Program FilesSaitekDirectOutput
Do the same as with the files on (1)
3) Goto the SDK/Examples-Folder (in directory 2) and test the connection of DirectOutput with the both tools.
Here is a screenshot with the files in both directories:
When this is working you can proceed with the installation of the „X52 Pro Interface for FS9“
For this you should
visit the blog http://blackswift.free.fr/blog and download“ version 1.0 and version 1.3 (you need both!).
* The blackswift-blog is no longer available online, so I provided the files on skydrive:
When the download is finished first install Version 1.0 to your FS9-folder. Then copy the „X52 Pro Interface for FS9.exe“ from version 1.3-zip to the „\FS9X52 Pro Interface for FS9“-folder and replace the original file.
That’s it – start the exe and you should get direct output is running – start flightsim and fsconnect should be activated also and on this point, the MFD is already working.
Thanks for this great tool!!
