Fanatec Control Panel freezes up completely when I plug in CSL Elite Pedals w/ Load Cell kit (v1)
I have the CSL Elite Pedals with the Load Cell kit and I connect the pedals to my PC via USB.
It used to be that I could run the "Set up USB game controllers" app in windows, select the pedals, hit 'properties' and the pedals calibration screen would come up (where I could set brakeforce, and manually set a min/max on the pedal inputs)
I used to also be able to run the Fanatec Control Panel and see my pedals, depress them and see the inputs on screen, etc.
Now, after not playing for ~1 month, when I run "Set up USB game controllers" and hit 'properties', the calibration window does not come up. Instead I get:
If I run the Fanatec Control Panel with the pedals plugged in, the fanatec control panel app hangs on loading, never fully loads, and I can't even force it exit using task manager.
If I unplug the pedals from USB, the fanatec control panel loads just fine and I can see my wheelbase listed.
If I have the Fanatec Control Panel running without the pedals plugged in via USB, and I then plug them in via USB, the fanatec control panel immediately hangs up/freezes and cannot be force-closed using task manager.
The pedals show up correctly in windows Device Manager:
They also are listed properly in the Set up USB game controllers window:
Any ideas on what is wrong or how to fix it? Whatever is causing the above issues also causes iRacing to fail to load the simulation when attempting a test drive, it locks up loading at 5% if my pedals are plugged in. If I unplug my pedals, iRacing test drive session loads without issue. But, no pedals means no driving so...
I've tested driver versions 423, 447 and 450. Same issue across all driver versions.
Testing involves: unplugging pedals, uninstalling driver, manually removing pedals from device manager, rebooting, reinstalling drivers, rebooting, plugging in pedals, then attempting to load properties page of game controllers screen, and then attempting to open Fanatec Control Panel.
In all test cases, the pedal calibration screen does NOT open on clicking 'properties' on the set up USB game controllers window, and in all cases, fanatec control panel either doesn't load if pedals are plugged in, or locks up after successfully loading without pedals plugged in, if I then plug the pedals in with it open.
I'm at my wits end testing this and hope someone has a solution to this issue, as I cannot race or practice without working pedals and the last time I loaded up iracing for a test drive a month ago everything was working fine.
There aren't separate drivers for just the pedals/USB connection that I just can't locate, are there? That should all be part of the fanatec drivers?
