Windows 10 10586.218 Borks Saitek FIPs

At least it did mine. After the auto-install of the latest Windows 10 comprehensive update two things happened. First, and for the first time, my Saitek panels and FIPs showed up correctly (with little icons and everything) in Windows Device Manager. That’s good. But the FIPs also weren’t loading any gauges. That’s bad.


A quick re-installation of the most recent Saitek drivers had everything quickly ship-shape. I also had to re-run Alexy’s FIP Customizer (well worth the download and found via Tom Tsui) to return the nice, solid black background that I prefer to the dormant FIPs.
