Using Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 in Windows Vista

I have Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 game controller. I am using this to play games on a old XP desktop. Now I am planing to build up a new system with adding new hardware and Windows Vista on the same. Now the issue lies with installation of this game stick on Vista. While it just work flawlessly on Windows XP. I need some advice on it. Will it be possible to use this one or I should get a new stick.

It basically depends on compatibility. I got this nice knowledge base article from Microsoft website. Because a few weeks ago I was struggling with the same thing. The article describes common solutions for using Sidewinder on Vista. You can read the steps below and understand one by one how to make it work in Vista. But I am doubtful about the new video games. You must check the game information or specification that allows you to use Sidewinder on your system.

You experience issues when you use a Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro joystick together with Flight Simulator on a Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista-based computer
