Windows 7: wacom tablet not working =x

Windows 7
wacom tablet not working =x

It works on my admin account, but not on this one...I'm guessing the driver can't start up on this standard account? Is there a way to change this?

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

What model tablet are you using? I have the one listed in my specs (see below) and that works perfectly for me. In fact, I had to resort to using it for a while when the left mouse button failed (I have since got a new mouse).

Windows 7

I have an intous 3, I don't see it in your specs...

anyway, it was working fine at first. I decided to create a new account and make that one the admin, since I'm using this one and its supposed to be more secure to be on a standard account. I changed this account from admin to standard type which is probably why its not working anymore. I didn't want to start over on a new account and have to reinstall all my programs and settings again...

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hello jepherz,

I never used a tablet before, but I just try to help you.

Is it possible for you to un-install the software from the tablet device?

Next try to install the tablet-software using the account you prefer to use.

I hope this works for you!

Best regards,

win 7 ultimate x64
Fix to wacom tablet not working

The blue light on my wacom was on, but neither the mouse nor the pen were responding. (win 7 x64) The only thing I had to do is remove my tablet preferences: Start Menu > All Programs > Pen Tablet > Pen Tablet Preference File Utility (click the "Remove" button). That was it. Problem solved ! Hope this works for you
