Default Help: Corrupt controls setting menu

I'm having problems with my Huey - it won't start (I've been flying it for many months, but just switched it to DCS Beta stand-alone). I suspected control setting issues, but when I looked in my control setting menu I found duplicated control entries. I've also seen this issue in my MiG-21 module.

Can anyone tell me which file the command settings for a module are stored in, and suggest a way to repair or refresh this file? Running 'DCS_updater repair' command does NOT fix this issue.

Thanks

This is "normal" for DCS it will attempt to assign every controller to axis and keys. Just delete the incorrect settings out.

If you still have a backup of your old input cfg's you might be able to drop them back in, else they may well have be overwritten.

They live C:\Users\username \saved games\DCS\config\input

The duplicated (orange) control entries for my ED modules are gone, including the Huey, since yesterdays beta update. I still have several of them in the Gazelle and Viggen.

...AAAnnnd this issue is now back with the latest Beta release - same corruption in the key bindings with two lines for a single control function. Both lines show as yellow. Something is corrupting the file(s) associated with control bindings in the Huey. I was having similar problem with the MiG-21 and MiG-19 before.

What version is that? The version I have and had when posting above is 2.5.4.28461, and running the updater (using Skate Zillas tool) doesn't reveal any more resent. As I mentioned above, the duplicates are not present for me anymore.
