I have an older Intuos (GD) wacom with XP.
The support site has 3 different drivers available.
I have tried all three. Two of them work, but the
problem is that everytime it boots, it finds new hardware
(the wacom) and wants to go through the installation
again. And when I installed it, it did say that the installation
I shut down the a/v program while I did the install. Since
I have tried all 3 drivers, I don't know what else to try.
I have had this device working on another XP machine
without a problem.
I plugged my Wacom into an XP computer and it worked perfectly straight
of the box with no need to install the manufacturers CD.
I know there are features on the disk that would be of use to me, but
it worked with XP by default, I was just too lazy to install the CD
Installing the right driver will give you extra features/options to
control the pressure and others, or if you use as mouse pointer then you
not have all tablet features (just guessing).
Same with original poster, installing wrong driver may cause problem or
the tablet may just work as regular mouse pointer.
Tis true... Can't easily use it as a mouse without the driver. On the
of the tablet is the model number. Use it to find the RIGHT driver. Don't
blindly install drivers in the hope one will work because you'll damage
hive in the registry where the drivers are installed.
Installing more than one driver usually results in a technician who knows
where to look in the registry to remove them. Why? Windows does not by
default, remove devise drivers once installed. Worst case scenario is a
format of the hard drive and reload software. It happens...
good practice to uninstall old drivers before installing new ones (many come
with uninstall program!)
also some good registry cleaners for when it gets messed up
never install more than one for each device, that is just asking for trouble
time for system restore....
