    Wacom Professional Pen Tablet Driver Release Notes

    From: http://www.wacom.com/en/CustomerCare...3&os=Windows+7

    Product Marketing Bulletin VOL.: 1106-04
    SUBJECT: WACOM Tablet Driver Support
    Windows® Driver v. 6.1.7-3 for Professional Pen Tablets Posted
    Date: Monday, June 27, 2011

    Windows Driver v. 6.1.7-3 for Professional Pen Tablets driver (release candidate) for professional pen tablets for use with PCs running
    • Microsoft Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit),
    • Microsoft Windows Vista (32 or 64 bit) or
    • Microsoft Windows XP (32 or 64 bit SP3).

    The driver supports the
    • Intuos4 WL pen tablets
    • Intuos4 (PTK) pen tablets
    • Intuos3 (PTZ) pen tablets
    • Intuos2 (XD) pen tablets
    • Cintiq 21UX (2nd Gen), 12WX, 20WSX, 21UX, 18SX, & 15X pen displays.
    • VM pen displays: DTU-2231, DTU-1931 and DTU-1631.

    The driver can be downloaded from www.wacom.com/en/CustomerCare/Drivers.aspx.
    • Save the file to your computer and then double-click on it to launch the installer.

    Wacom implemented the following changes and improvements in v.6.1.7-3:
    • A full pressure issue in Adobe CS5 applications was fixed
    • Touch ring functionality is more consistent

    • USB tablet required.
    • Serial tablets are not supported. The recommended driver for serial tablets on Vista 32 bit, XP 32 bit and 2000 is version 6.05-7.

    Pen input features in Windows 7 and Vista
    • On Windows 7 and Vista, installing the driver will activate the pen input functions available within Windows and within Office 2007 and Office 2010.
    • The Windows 7 and Vista Flicks and Press-and-hold-to-right-click features are disabled in most graphics applications (all that use the Wintab API). This is a workaround to improve drawing performance in these applications when those features are on.

    General notes
    • Tablet PC support: When using Wacom professional driver version 6.1.5 or later on a Tablet PC with Wacom pen technology, upgrade the Tablet PC pen driver to version 7.0.1-8 or later (go to www.wacom.com/en/CustomerCare/Drivers.aspx and select “Tablet PC” as the tablet model). Otherwise the Tablet PC pen will not support pressure sensitivity in graphics applications.
    • Consumer tablet support: This driver supports only the professional tablets listed above. For concurrent use of a consumer Wacom tablet, you need to install a separate Pen Tablet driver v 5.2.3 or later. These drivers can be added or removed independently of each other. (It is good practice to check the driver release dates and install the older driver first, followed by the newer one.)
    • To uninstall a driver, go to Start - Control Panels and select “Programs and Features” (Vista & newer) or “Add or Remove Programs” (XP). Find the entry for the Wacom Tablet driver in the list of applications, and then select the Uninstall button located at the top of the application list. Restart your computer before installing a new driver.
    • To remove the preferences file and restore all default settings, open Start – All Programs – Wacom Tablet – Tablet Preference File Utility. Then select to remove the preferences file(s). You must authenticate yourself as an administrator to be able to remove all users’ preferences.
