Is there a way to clone an existing joystick config *file*?

My Logitech Force 3D Pro is recognised but doesn’t have any controls assigned.

The joystick config files are just XML so I was hoping that I could copy the config file of an existing joystick and start from that, rather than having to start from an empty config. For instance, the Logitech Extreme 3D.

The main stumbling block is that the folder, C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.7.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\Input, is protected and no amount of attempting to edit permissions renders it accessible. Not to mention that it appears to be a NTFS Junction with no destination?!?

Seeing as this forum prevents new* users from including more than a single image per post:

Hi how are you
I’m trying the same but can’t edit anything …
I can’t get the permission of the folder and files.

Yes, it’s a protected folder. Hence, my post.
