Misc: P3D V2 and Saitek FIP

Installation so far so good but tried for a few hours and still unable to add Saitek’s FIPs to the P3D system. P3DInstall

Appreciate suggestions from anyone who has installed FIPs successfully with P3D.

Update 1:
Was wondering where to put those Saitek drivrs.  Now I see the exe.xml file doesn’t exist by default and I have to create it or copy it from FSX manually.  Big thanks to John, Dave and HBE66 for your quick advices.  Will do it and try it later.

Update 2:
Just copied the exe.xml file from FSX and the FIPs now work in P3D.

  1. Hey Tom,

    Could you send me a copy of your exe.xml from you controls folder.
    that includes the FIP as I only have Prepar3d on my system now.


  2. Thanks John, Dave and HBE66. Was wondering where to put those Saitek drivers. Now I see that the exe.xml doesn’t exist by default.
    Will add it manually and try again later.


  3. hi tom

    i found the solution in the C:\Users\enigma\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\ directories

    copy the “exe.xml” from the v1.* to the v2 directory and the FIPs work ^^


    1. PS: in case the exe.xml is missing, here is what it contains:


      ProFlight Plugin
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\ProFlightPlugin\ProFlightPlugin.exe

      C:\Program Files (x86)\SPAD\Spad.exe

      Saitek DirectOutput RadioStack
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\DirectOutput\SaiFlightSimX.exe


  4. Tom, Copy the exe .xml file from your FSX controls folder in to the same folder in Prepar3d v 2 and you should be good to go…Mine are working.
