Logitech Formula Force Drivers for Windows 10 64 Bit (x64)



Almost 20 years on, the Logitech Wingman Formula Force still works in windows. Released around the time USB was just arriving on the market, these robust wheels date from back in 1998.

Logitech discontinued driver development in 2006, however Saitek did release a 64bit driver based on the Immersion SDK. A primitive Force feedback design by today's standards, but it still works with most modern games.

This driver was adapted by Sly_North from the below Saitek source. 

To breath a new bit of life into the Logitech Wingman Formula Force, here is a Windows 10 Driver (signed) that will permit installation into Win10 x64 bit without the need to disable driver signing.



Enjoy!

    1. Unfortunately this post is about this specific model, that shared a driver/tech with other Immersion SDK wheels.

    1. also how does everyone else connect these serial gameport wheels? I was told the rockfire would be the converter between analog to digital but it does not pick up my wheel

    2. This Wheel is USB (+Serial RS232/DB9). These Drivers are for USB only. I suspect you might have a different wheel.

    1. The Zip file is the signed driver. The other files are provided for reference, should someone want to compare to the originals.

    1. Correct. If your wheel looks like the one pictured and you connect via USB it will work.

  8. My Wheel looks exactly the same, just in Yellow. But the native Port isn't USB. I hava a USB-Adapter tho. Will this work? I can't seem to get the installation done. The .exe doesn't find me device.

  13. A little complicated method can be if you install VMWare or other virtual machine software and you install Windows XP over that. On installed virtual machine you can install the drivers of the Logitech Wingman Formula Force without any problem. You install your wheel-based games to Win XP virtual machine and you play on it. :)

    1. Yes this is an alternative to these drivers. However 3D games do not run as well under VMware IMO.

    1. This driver isn't for the yellow wheel. This is only for the red wheel. They may look the same, but have different internals.

  15. Been trying to make this work for years, but cannot make it work. The files everybody points to are always the same. I get "The hash for the file is not present in the specified cataloque file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering." :(

    1. You need to use the zip file. Logitech_FormulaForce_E-UA2_Windows7_64bits.zip This is the modified Saitek R440 Force Wheel drivers.

      Try https://www.7-zip.org/download.html if you are having issue unzipping.

  16. Nice to see you are still around and posting!!
    I did use the zip file, no issues with unzipping.
