Flight Sim Issue From Windows 10 Update


Reports are appearing of a recent Windows 10 update disabling and replacing the driver that enables use of an FrSky radio as a USB flight simulator controller.

Here's the first report I saw, along with a fix:

In case it helps anyone else, here is a quick summary of how I got it working again.

Symptom: After a Windows update, the game controller functions (joysticks, switches) no longer do anything in Windows.

Cause: Windows update installed a new driver "libusb0.sys" in "C:\windows\system32\drivers" which was now being used for the Taranis USB inputs.

Solution: Revert back to the previous Windows driver.
  • Turn Taranis ON, and attach to PC via USB as normal for using flight simulator.
  • Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers. Right click on item "FrSKY Taranis…" Select Properites > Hardware > USB Input Device > Properties > Change Settings > Driver > Update Driver > "Browse my computer…" > "Let me pick…"
  • Windows had switched mine to "BETTER_USB_HS" (which in this case was NOT better!)
  • I switched it back to "USB Input Device" and all is good again.
It is once again using the driver "hidusb.sys" in the same directory as above, and the game controller functions are working as before.

Cheers,

I found that in my case the procedure to get to those settings was different than what was described by John, so it's not necessarily the same for everybody.

Here are some other reports that I've spotted so far:

Fixing FrSky / Jumper Tx after windows update to libusb (3 min 6 sec)

This is the fix
Now if you cant rollback and that button is grayed out then go to this page https://batcavegames.freshdesk.com/s...o-stop-working
Now if you are like me and this doesn't work then you will have to go to Zadig and click on the frsky driver and change it to the libusb driver. When you do that then you will see it in device manager then go to the batecavegames link above and do what it says. That will fix it.

You guys are ALL SO AMAZING!!! I have tried fixing this (with no help from Horizon support) for almost a month after the stupid Windows update! I am SO glad to finally have this fixed! thanks for posting this!

Cheers!

I haven't had this happen to my own computer yet, probably because I have Windows 10 Pro and can delay (but not stop) updates that Windows 10 Home users can't. But since I know I'll eventually get the update forced on me by Microsoft, at least when that happens I'll be able to consult my own blog post here to see how to fix it.
