Joystick Install - Windows XP or Windows 7
Note: Make sure you are logged on as administrator to perform the following installations: Note: You must make sure you have the JOYSTICK.LIC file (included below) if you are using the 64 bit version of windows!
The joystick control is not self installing. You need a few joystick files and a procedure to install them for use in Visual Basic 6. The following procedure is for Windows 7 but will also work in Windows XP
You have a choice of downloading just the joystick files or a folder named vbimages which contains the files and also other images used for the online version of IS1205 and some of the activitties found in the RST3205 resource. I would recommend the vbimages folder but you can download just the joystick files and place them in a folder of your choice.
It is assumed you have the joystick files unzipped and placed in a folder or the vbimages folder unzipped and placed on the C:\ drive. Also you should be logged in as administrator:
