I have been trying to install the software for this joy stick but I keep getting a little window telling me "Logitec profiler was unable to detect any game controllers" I have it pluged into the USB and the batteries are brand new in the controller. I noticed the CD says on it, Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP. No mention of Vista! What gives???

Not sure. I got the same error though, and was able to get arround it by re-installing the Logitech Profiler. I had to un-installed then re-install as the Logitech Profiler recognized that a "Legacy version" was all ready active, and then it seems to at least partially work. Meaning, I get the device to communicate now with Vista (using the control panel's "Game Controllers" utility) but not the game itself. So it appears to be communitcating, and active on Vista, however, when I load a game (in my case Gears of War, a Windows Vista version), it does not seem to recognize that there is any joystick installed. I've tried re-assigning profile commands, but still no luck... I am ready to call logitech tech support on this one...if I could find number. Anyone else have ideas how to make this work?

A few things:
We have a vista download of the software on our website (5.02)
That joystick is Vista compatible
Have you tried this on a different PC? Have you tried this on a different USB port?
Could you upen up the game controllers control panel with the receiver connected see if it's visible there?

I am not a gamer, I am a former commercial pilot. The only gaming software I own is Microsoft Simulator 98. I have "flown" this using the key board for a few years and though I should finally get a joystick. NO JOY!. The stick definately communicates with my computer (Vista) and I can calibrate it on screen... but the MS SImulator 98 ignores the stick. I have tried "Run program as a XP" mode but it doesn't help. My "mannual" that I got with the "Freedom (NOT) 2.4 does not mention Vista but the web site claims it is compatible with Vista. I have tried downloading an update of the software but can't really find the right thing.
Here is my solution... I will send the NOT Freedom 2.4 (days of pointless effort) back to Dell and purchase their the Attack 3 joystick... probably an inferior product but at least it will give me the FREEEDOM in 2.4 seconds to fly my simulator instead of pouring hours into this cordless waste of time. Short of that... there is always Staples
