This is the full install of 2000/XP for Microsoft Strategic Commander.

Well having spent most of
sidewinder to work, it’s quite simple.
Install the sidewinder software, at a certain point you will be asked if “
you really want to quit the setup program?” say yes.
Tootle off to the folder in which you installed the software and drag
“DEAMON14” into startup and you might as well get yourself a shortcut to the
program itself on the desktop while you are at it.
Now get yourself off to Device manager by your favourite route. Under the
heading “Human Interface Devices” you will see two ( maybe more) items. The
ones we are interested in are
Usb Human Interface Device, this equals your strategic commander
HID compliant device, this little fellow will become ms sw strat com hid
Two other devices will appear as we get the drivers installed, these are ms
virtual keyboard and ms virtual mouse, hoorah.
So to get the little devils working like you want, right click on the “Usb
Human Interface Device” choose “update driver software” then click “browse
my computer for the driver software”
Then click “ let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer” then
you will be given a list in that list will be “ Microsoft strategic
commander” click on that, followed by “next” around this point you will get
the usual warning that the driver is unsigned click on “install anyway” or
the equivalent there of!!
Rince and repeat for the HID compliant device and when you have done that
you will find that the virtual kb and mouse will have appeared, you should
not have to change their drivers. Windows will tell you that you need to
restart your computer (that has not changed) and when you reboot your strat
comm should work!!!
You will need to repeat this process if you change usb ports, I’ve tested
it in guild wars and nwn2 and all was fine."
