    No, but it depends on your sound card. Take a look at this post

    Are you trying with to use an ISA sounds card or a PCI?
    if it's ISA, windows 7 doesn't have the drivers anymore for the ISA bridge itself
    so it can't see anything connected to it.

    iīm not sure i remember how i did it.

    if i have time i will try to do it later tonight, i have other more important things planned, regarding a now famous "DINOSAUR"....

    hi !

    i just noticed that i had recieved a couple of PMīs asking about Gameport in W7.

    unfortunately, i donīt have my old PC with the gameport available at the moment, so i canīt give exact instructions on how to do it.

    and since the last time i installed the gameport was a while back iīm not sure that i remember exactly how i did it, so you might have to experiment a bit.

    but try the following...


    Gameport in W7:

    follow the instructions for Vista, install the Gameport-controller

    but when you come to
    "2) Installing the Gameport Devices control panel extension:"

    do NOT follow the instructions about right-click on install.inf, as it doesnīt work.

    instead run Device manager (as ADMIN)

    select "Gameport-controller", update driver.
    it might be called something else, but look for the "Yellow-triangle" warning you about a device not working, it should be something called "Game" / "controller".

    then follow the rest of the instructions.


    i will check my old PC as soon as possible to see if i can give more specific instructions....
