How do I re-install a joystick driver? Suspect files were deleted. Win95 has the icon for setting up/calibrating a joystick but sees no specific joystick drivers or properties. vjoyd.vxd is present in the windows/system directory.

There should be a setup file on a disk that came with the joystick.  This loads the driver and selection to the joystick menu.

Question-- do you have DirectX installed?  If so-- can you go into Control Panel and choose the joysticks applet and set it up there with the directX driver being used?

If you cannot-- you will need the driver disk for the joystick.  what type is it-- you can go to their website and download the driver.

If you need further assisstance, let me know,

Direct X is installed. The joystick is a Gravis Blackhawk and according to Gravis,
"Use the Windows Joystick Control Panel to setup the joystick.  No Gravis software is needed." The problem is that key features of the joystick setup appear to be missing.
Any further ideas appreciated.

Ive  been down the road of attempting to select to the 3 button, four axis etc but selection has no effect. In the system properties device manager (sound, video and game controllers)  - no device is being detected to run the joystick. Under mulimedia properties, advanced, an icon exists for  joystick devices , but no device is indcated within the icon. ie. no driver detected?

What do I do?

To regain support then, I would simply re-install directX 5.0-- that wil only take a fewminutes.  Tell me what happens then.
