Missing controllers

Sorry if this has been asked before but I’m tearing my hair out a little. I just got the Honeycomb Alpha Yoke and Zaitek pedals in yesterday and no matter what I can’t get them to show in game. Windows recognizes, sees buttons, no problems except it’s completely absent every time I load up flight sim. Is there a workaround I’m missing and can’t find?

Thank you,

Sorry, I think I found the solution by stopping all steam control over controllers. Turning everything off in steam settings showed them up and they seem to work fine. Only took 4+ hours to find that setting.
