Uploader Notes

Microsoft SideWinder Precision 2: This is the ONLY version of Microsoft SideWinder 4.0 Game Controller Software that will work with, and provide full button programmability for, Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 Joystick. No other Sidewinder 4.0 software (such as one for Force Feedback, Gamepad or Racing wheel) will work.

MS Sidewinder Precision 2 is a great joystick, but, as I am sure you know since you are here, there is no way to get the software for it if you lose the original CD, like I did. Microsoft does not post it.

While XP recognizes Sidewinder precision 2 on its own, it provides no way to assign any functions to the buttons. You need to install this software to do that.

Do not bother downloading any other versions of Sidewinder 4.0 software. It is decieving in a way

"The software/driver installed well.

The Profiles, Settings and Test tabs of the software worked.

The recorder tab didn't.

As XP supports the joystick there is nop point in using this software/driver as the profiles can't be edited."

"Good driver and worked well for me. Don't rush the install as like most Microsoft hardware drivers not a lot of thought has gone into the production on behalf of the customer"

"Had the joystick for this software but couldn't find the cd. Also, I have an original Sidewinder Precision Racing Wheel that wouldn't work with it's own drivers due to being incompatible with Win10 x64. So I tried this and it recognizes my Precision Racing Wheel and it works in games like RaceRoom. Am very happy!"

"murky download instructions. unfathomable process. interface software seemed to install but it hung up half way through installing (everytime) asking did I really want to exit; malware detected somewhere in the mix which was removed (hopefully). all in all a waste of time."

"It is filled with ad installers but they can be opted out/declined during install.

The drivers seem to be the real deal however."
