Question about Wacom Intuos3 Graphic Tablet
For some reason my Wacom tablet pen has stopped making the mouse pointer move - everything else seems okay. I have an Intuos3 - Windows Vista and it all used to work fine but I notice it just doesn't switch automatically from mouse mode to pen mode (pointer moves fine with the Intuos mouse). Exact same problem. I'm using vista home premium 64bit.
The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!
