  2. Open the folder in which your game device profile is located (if it is not located in the default folder).
  3. Double-click the profile you want to open.

Additional Information

If SideWinder Profile Editor is not active, you can double-click a profile in Windows Explorer or in the SideWinder Profile Activator Profile column. This opens the profile and starts SideWinder Profile Editor.

NOTE: If SideWinder Profile Editor is active and you double-click a profile, SideWinder Profile Editor becomes the active program with the current profile loaded. The profile you double-clicked may not be the loaded profile.
