Thanks for the replay. I still cannot see the 'new thread' tab'--actually, I cannot find the 'Forum Tools' tab either. I would like to figure that out, but perhaps you can answer a few questions I was going to ask in a new thread.
I somewhat have the Hotas Cougar issue sorted. I was running the older Vista RC 1 drivers along with the latest Target software, following the advice of a Thrustmaster rep. Apparently there was a conflict going on between these software(s) causing the Hotas to become either unresponsive or very erratic (WAY over sensitive), On the advice of another Thrustmaster rep I deleted the older driver package, and this has resolved the above issues. I would like to post a new thread though as everything is not yet quite right with the Cougar.
Will have to send rest of message in 2--3 segments as I am being blocked because of message size--sorry Norm
