First, if your version is 5.04 or lower, get an updated installer from http://www.simwerk.de , downloads section. Older CD installers didn't work on vista so probably won't either in 7. A workarround is to install reflex in a PC with XP and copy the full installation folder to your Win 7 PC, and execute the driver installer (reflexhidinst.exe) as admin.
5.05 should install without problems, but may happen that it does not find the dongle.

Win 7 64 bit (not sure if 32 bit version has the same restrictions) has an aditional problem: unsigned drivers don't load/work/install unless you boot with the correct option (let windows load unsigned drivers) holdong F8 during the first seconds of OS boot.

I still haven't found the way for reflex to keep working in win 7 64 bit after a reset without uninstalling the driver and repeating the installation with the boot option.

If you get it working, please post here
Is there a life outside the sim?

Thanks for the reply.
I'll get home and see what happens. In Vista i copied the folder from XP and just made a shortcut for the game to run, but it doesnt seem to work in 7?
thanks again

You need to install the HID driver without interference from the operating system (An issue in Vista and Windows 7). Before the OD boots, press <F8> and turn off unsigned driver protection, After Windows boots, run the ReflexHIDInst.exe file found in the Reflex installation folder. You should install the dongle BEFORE running this file. This will attach the correct driver to the Reflex dongle.
