Windows 7: Wacom Tablet, ring round pen cursor

Welcome to the forum artie1977.
Read down through this thread and check to see if your XP has a similar Touch PC service running and try the disable trick they used for Vista and Win7. It's been awhile since I've used XP and I don't remember if it does or not.
This one seems to have info, but again it is for 7.

Thanks Britton30 !

I've red all the posts, but they were all concerning Vista or 7 (I know...I'm a dinosaur, but I've never got used to further versions than XP).
Anyway, I've found in another forum the name of the file to kill : it's "wacom virtual hid driver". In the control panel, you have to "show the hidden files" or something (Sorry, I'm french, so I can't translate all the terms).And the, the wacom virtual hid driver appears in the users interface list (And you have to erase it and reboot).
The solution is here : www.cfsl.net - Communauté Créative • Voir le sujet - Windows 7, CS4 et wacom: problème de pression [RESOLU]

Maybe it could help some XP user someday...

Anyway, thanks for your reply !

Windows XP to Windows 7
 
 

Mainly it's Windows 7 cures because this is a Windows 7 forum. You're still on XP? I went from XP to W7, never did detour through Vista.

I don't remember my Wacom having any issues in XP at all. It was only when I went to 7 that ridiculous rotating ring got in the way of everything. It was massively annoying in ZBrush and a few other 3D apps. It's really difficult to sculpt 3Dmesh when your cursor is being cute and unmanageable.

Thanks to everyone for getting rid of the rings, but how can I prevent the pen cursor from displaying modifier keys when I use them. I know I'm pressing it, stop telling me!

After trying most of the things in this thread, I finally found out how to disable the annoying ripple on another site. It's actually pretty simple.
Go into services.msc, stop the Tablet PC Input Service, and then right-click it and go into Properties. Where it says "Startup Type" change it to "Disabled".
NOW here's the important part: Reinstall the drivers for your tablet. I uninstalled mine first and then reinstalled them just to be safe. Reboot. The end.

The reason I had to do it this way was because I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. It works!

Thank you, claytondb! I couldn't stop the ripple effect just by disabling the Tablet PC Input Service. I had to disable the service as well as UNINSTALL the Wacom tablet drivers before reinstalling them again. Only then did it work. So yes, that really is the important part!

Thanks again!
