How can I make the Logitech Wingman Formula Force steering wheel work in Vista and 64 bit Windows 7?

Download 64-bit drivers for the Saitek R440 from here

ftp://ftp.saitek.com/pub/software/fu...eel_SD6_64.exe

If this link stops working, you can visit the Saitek page here

http://www.saitek.com/uk/down/drivers.php

Extract the Saitek_R440_Force_Wheel_SD6_64.exe file somewhere (You might need Winrar to extract the *.exe).

Now, you need to find the hardware id for your wheel. Plug everything in, and go to your device manager. You'll see Wingman or something with a yellow ! next to it. Right click it > properties > details tab > select hardware id from the drop down menu.

It will look like this..

USB\VID_046D&PID_C291&REV_0100

Now, go to the folder where you extracted the Saitek drivers, in the FF04 folder, open the file SaiFF04.inf

Look for [SAITEK_MODELS.NTamd64] below that there are 2 lines. Paste your hardware id onto the second line after the SAI_USB_Inst,. It will look like this:

%USB_NAME%= SAI_USB_Inst, USB\VID_046D&PID_C291&REV_0100

All you need to do now, is find your wheel in the device manager, select "driver update" and point your browser to the folder with the saitek drivers in. The edited .inf file will make windows assume this is the correct driver and install it.

I tested and calibrated this. It works really well

That's great, thanks @user. I've also taken the liberty of tweaking the formatting on this post so it's a bit more pleasant to look at.

not sure if it works (yet) but some instructions claim to work: forums.logitech.com/t5/PC-Gaming/… –  Kaos Apr 18 '12 at 18:04
    
that actually seems to work. replaced all occurences in the .inf file directly prior to installing them to avoid having to rename folders in regedit though. –  Kaos Apr 18 '12 at 18:22

Pre-modified drivers are now available here: forums.logitech.com/t5/Logitech-G-Controllers/… .. Can test basic operation by going to Devices and Printers, right click on wheel, select Game Controller Settings, select Properties. –  juanitogan Feb 5 at 5:20
