Logitech runs  it and handles new software and drivers..

I found they made new software and drivers for one of the Saitek sticks I own, the Saitek X52 Pro.
it is an WHQL version for Windows 10. I am trying it, it was a pain to install, as their directions are horrible and the setup wasn't click and play, I had to dig into the separate files to find certain files in exe and zips.

I would suggest not messing with the latest drivers and software build sunless you absolutely need them.
I am still testing mine, and have not got much tested yet. While I Have had my Saitek stick for 10 years, it is worn and not al problems are software, a lot of worn buttons. The last Win10 drivers Saitek made a  couple of years ago were not signed by Microsoft, so one had to go around the signed drivers check, for them to install. Supposedly Logitech did it properly, but I am not ready to say all is well with their acquisition of Saitek HOTAS sticks.  IMHO   :o

the drivers and software are in the same download, but I had to go into the folders and take each one out separately...
the drivers are Version: 8.0.121.0
the software for profiles is Version: 8.0.131.0

(no matter what the Logitech info and download page says, inside the files it says, in text, these are the actual versions).

the profile software will appear as a little joystick on your right taskbar.
save your profiles
 from your Saitek install. You can continue using the same profiles, and will just copy these to your new 'c:/user/.../.../.../logitech folder.
Logitech only made a new front page with their logo and design for the desktop and taskbar, and used the same profiling creator.
