Trying to install my old MS Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick on my Windows 10 PC. It wouldn't install just by plugging it in, and also when I installed the CD. Anyone know how to get this working? If not, any recommendations for a new similar joystick?

I moved this to the hardware discussion forum from the Ground Environment forum for better public review...
 
(I don't know anything about the sidewinder and drivers)

It should be plug-and-play without drivers (mine is). As far as I'm aware, the supplied drivers on the CD-ROM aren't Windows 10 compatible anyway. Are you using the supplied gameport-to-USB adapter?

I found out that joystick is not compatible with Windows 10 at all. I've since found a good joystick that works fine with Win 10.
