i installed windows 7 x86 yesterday (from scratch) and now i'm having a problem with my pen tablet, a genius g-pen m712.
i got the latest driver
from geniusnet, hooked up the tablet, and immediately got the annoying control of the tablet pc input service (i gather i'm not the first to report that). i managed to disable the right click, but i still got the droplet effect on clicks, and i can't switch to mouse mode which is highly annoying as i usually work with my display extended to an external monitor.
so i read through some older threads and tried disabling the input service, but now it won't recognize the pen at all. the scroll/volume control buttons work, the tablet lights indicates it is hooked up and registering the pen's pressure. it's just not moving the cursor.
weird thing is, just now when i rebooted my computer, the first two seconds it seems to have registered some movement. now it's unresponsive again though. as if something that hadn't started up yet is now inhibiting the whole thing.
also, when i was still running vista, i had more control panel options, where i could adjust sensitivity, switch to mouse mode and stuff like that. i'm not finding those in 7.
any idea how to fix this?
thanks in advance
