If anyone has any advice, I'd be grateful.

I recently purchased MS Flight Simulator X Gold Edition and have installed it on my PC. I previously had FS2002 and used the Speedlink SL-6640 Black Widow flightstick controller with it, including force feedback effect without any problems. On running FS2002 last week I found that it would crash when using the SL-6640 flightstick. I uninstalled the software/drivers for the SL-6640 and reinstalled/rebooted to no avail.

With FSX Gold edition, I find I can use my MS Xbox controller for windows as normal but FSX crashes at start up when the SL-6640 flightstick is plugged in (with software installed) without the software, I can use the same flightstick but with no force feedback feature.

The error message I receive is as follows:

"Microsoft Flightsimulator X has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience...

If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.

[checkbox] Restart Microsoft Flight Simulator X

Please tell Microsoft about this problem,
We have created an error report that you can send to help us improve Microsoft Flight Simulator X. We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous.

What data does this error report contain? (when I clicked on this link, the following information is displayed:

The error signature is as follows:
AppName: fsx.exe AppVer: 10.0.61637.0 AppStamp:46fadb14
ModName: hid.dll ModVer: 5.1.2600.5512 ModStamp:4802a0c5
fDebug: 0 Offset: 00001526

The files included in the report are listed below too:
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\fsx.CFG.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\dxdiag.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\fdr.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\DLL.xml

I tried testing the Speedlink SL-6640 controller in Start>control panel>printers and other hardware>game controllers>properties and have received another error message:

"Run DLL as an App has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry..."

The error signature is as follows:
AppName: rundll32.exe AppVer: 5.1.2600.5512 ModName: hid.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.5512 Offset: 00001526

If this makes any sense to anyone I would be grateful for any helpful advice.

I have visited the Speedlink website and found this under the FAQs for device. I am guessing it is a similar problem to mine bit do not wish to risk doing as suggested below:

"Since installing the joystick, all I ever get when starting the game 'FSX' is an error notification.
In this game, Windows' own HID drivers conflict with the Speedlink drivers. Uninstall the HID drivers in Windows Device Manager then install the current Speedlink drivers for the product, which you can find at or on the accompanying CD-ROM."
