3DCONNEXION please develop a x64 Vista-Driver like this one. A joystickdriver with simply mapping of the axes and the buttons would satisfy me and maybe many others.

no way to installa de RBC9 driver

Post by moebiussurfing » Sun Mar 16, 2008 6:27 am

Im in Windows XP sp2 and i have my new SpaceNavigator. I followed all this pages of posts, mainly, but without succes. My system cant update the driver. No gamepad reconized, and still with the "no space navigator found" message. I read other ppl with same problem and they solved. I cant. I tryed to manually install with rigth click above the .inf file but nothing changes. I must deinstall the 3dconnection installer? I tryed thisd also.. Thanks for the help

Any news about Spacepilot?

Post by QuinoBLN » Fri Mar 21, 2008 10:40 am

Hi *!
has anybody any news about RBC9 driver and the Spacepilot?

After much reading and trying, I could only reproduce the behaviour described by some posters with the Fadetoblack debug version. (The driver unloads itself when I touch any control, otherwise it freezes, and DebugView produces similar output to what described in some posts ago).

Platform: XP 32 Prof, 2x Intel Xeon

Any ideas? Thank you all in advance!

Hi all!
I have got a problem with my Installation. I do everything like it is written in the first post. When i try to update the driver in my device-manager the "hardware update wizard" is updating and updating... as long as do not touch my space-pilot. If i press any button on it or touch the "ball" the "hardware update wizard" is telling me: "cannot start this hardware" and the lights of my space-pilot are turning off. In my device manager a yellow "!" is written on the space-pilot. I have tried it a few times and finally i set up my pc new. I have just installed my motherboard-drivers, my graphic-drivers and after a few tries my w-lan drivers to check the forum again. If someone had the same problem or can help me otherwise, i would be glad to read from u
I made a few screenshots from my Problem. U can find it under http://rapidshare.com/files/101308718/R ... m.rar.html

My System:
"Windows XP32bit Prof SP3"

Now i read every page of this topic and i see that I am not the only one with this Problem. Am I right that i will not be able to get it to work? Because i tried it a few hours and set up my pc new. If there is no chance I would like to know^^
(But after set up my pc new it works faster and my desktop is so empty ;) )

I can't install the driver (it doesn't show up in the Hardware Update Wizard, only the HID standard one shows up). When I try to manually install from the INF i got from /windows/inf, I get an error


I'm running Win XP SP2, but I did install the latest version of the SpaceNav software. I think that's the problem.

Any suggestions?

SpaceNavigator for Notebooks?

Post by LostSailor » Thu Apr 17, 2008 11:50 am

I read back four or five pages and did not see anything about the SpaceNavigator for Notebooks. Hope I didn't miss anything -

At any rate, I cannot seem to be able to get the RBC9 driver to recognize my brand new SNfN - one clue here, the HID ID is different from the one listed in the documentation. Device Manager shows:


where C628 exists in place of C626 in the docs.

When I try to "Update driver", the RBC driver is not found as associated with the device.

Vista32, and the SNfN works otherwise using the native driver in Google Earth.

Any ideas?

I have installed this wonderful driver, but I can't make it work. It recognizes my SpaceNavigator and when I open the app to configure it, the values on all axis are displayed when I move the knob.

I made some layouts and when I change between apps the layout actually changes.

But configured the movements like Joystick X, Y and Z axis, and any app respond to the movements (except the default empty layout that that uses 3dxSrv.exe) on google earth...

Mostly I want to use it for Excel, IE and firefox besides Google Earth...

What could be wrong? Are any configuration tips? Tnx!
