Question about Manhattan Graphics 8 x 6 (174459)

1 Answer

Vista installation When trying to install my new Manhattan 8x6 tablet on vista, the setup files for the Photoshop CS Painter IX trials work, but when I try to install the drivers or the PenSuite software, I'm given the error: "The setupext.inf file cannot be found. Please verify the distribution diskette." Trying to run the program under compatibility modes has not helped.

Re: Vista installation

Try downloading updated drivers from the manufacturers website as this may be a known issue for winXP

Bamboo Fun won't work w/ provided software


I had the same problem when I got my laptop (Vista OS). The solution is to update the new driver for your bamboo. They are out of date so you need to go here: Updated @ Apr. 9, 2009

This update should allow Vista to find it.

My Genius Gpen 4500 has shown no Pressure recognition on Photoshop, Painter and the wizard.

Hello. I'm not quite sure if this will be useful for you, but i'll tell you what happened to me. I bought the very same model but without the mouse, the G-pen450. When I just bought it, I just intalled the driver from the CD, and both the painter X and photoshop cs1 trials included. I had no problem when I was drawing in photosho cs1, but when I uninstalled it and and installed photoshop cs2, I was still able to draw with the pen, but it had no pressure sensibility, no matter how hard did I press the pen against the table or how many times i enabled or disabled the pressure settings in both photoshop and the tablet driver.

what i did was downloading the new driver (the 2.0 version) for the g-pen450 from the genius page, and simply installed it ... and it didn't work, worse; now even the pen suite didn't recongize the pressure control, so, what I did was to uninstall the WHOLE software included with the table along with the driver, and then I reinstalled the new version (2.0). After I installed it, the instaling program asked me to restart the computer, so I did it. Then, after the computer was done restarting, I connected the tablet to a USB port, and then the computer recognized it, actually it told me that it recognized the tablet, two HID compatible dispossitives, and a HID compatible mouse pen. It opened that window that appears everytime you connect new hardware to the computer, and it proceeded to "install" all the drivers needed for the dispossitives.

After the computer finished installing, it asked again to restart the PC, soooo I restarted it again, when it was done, I connected the tablet once again, and this time it displayed that "your new hardware is installed and ready to use" balloon on the bottom right corner of the screen. So I tried opening photoshop CS2 again and drawing with the tablet, and this time it did work perfectly.

I think it's matter of uninstalling the old driver, and the bundle software (annotate all, pen commander, pen mail, pen signer, etc. ) and then instaling the 2.0 version of the driver.

Could not find Windowx XP Driver for MousePen 8x6!


You are getting this message as this product is tested for Vista Only. However that does not mean that it wont work on the XP. You can continue the installation even when you are getting this message and it should work fine on the computer.

Hope that helps

Genius tablet 8x6 with mousepen

I had a similar problem myself, this is due to temp files which are extracted during an installation. What happened is that a program extracted a setup file that was Read only into the temp directory. and that this file could not be overwritten or deleted, by the system (as it should be able to. to fix look in your temp directories to find this bogus setup file, when you find it delete it.
