I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from down under.
X-Plane is unlike any other "shoot-em-up" or flight sim games. The controllers have to be setup within X-Plane. No other way. Not with the installation software supplied with the controller or even within your operating system software.
If you were using Logitec or previously Saitek controllers I would tell you to dig a hole and bury the installation software never to be seen again.
Have a look at the X-Plane manual found at https://x-plane.com/manuals/desktop/ and specifically at https://x-plane.com/manuals/desktop/#configuringessentialyokejoystickfunctions and also at https://x-plane.com/manuals/desktop/#selectingflightcontrolhardware and also at https://x-plane.com/manuals/desktop/#configuringflightcontrols Read the whole of Chapter 4.
Take your time with the assignments of buttons and sliders making sure you do not assign two buttons to the one process or two or more processes to a single button or slider. Your calibration will not work.
When you have the controller calibrated save the setup with a name. Then if you want to fly another aircraft calibrate the controls for the new aircraft and then save with a different name. Repeat this process for all aircraft where you wish to use this controller. In the very early versions of XP11 and pre XP11 you had to calibrate you controller each time from first principals and lost all previous configurations whereas as now you select the controller name for you specific aircraft.
