Wacom Released New Drivers Yesterday 7-14-2015. You May Want to Wait on This One!


Hello Folks,

A friend sent me an email telling me that there were new Wacom Drivers available.  Surprisingly, my Wacom Desktop Center hadn’t told me about it this morning, but when I opened the Center again, there was the message new drivers were available.  I decided to use the Wacom Desktop Center to install the drivers.  I did that the last time without issue.  That wasn’t the case this time.  The installation appeared to go as planned, but when I rebooted, I came back to black screens.  I was able to get everything back without much hassle, but it was such a surprise to have something like this happen.

Next I loaded my preferences and then took a look at my Wacom Tablet Preferences window.  Yikes, it look similar, but on closer inspection, I found many changes.  I’m not even sure how it works.  I did go to the Wacom site, but I couldn’t find any information about the changes.  That doesn’t mean that it isn’t there…I just couldn’t find it.

I suspect that I am going to roll back to the previous driver until I can figure out what is going on.  I’m not worried; Wacom products are fine.  I just need to learn a bit about the new look and feel of the Wacom Tablet Preferences.  I’ll let you know when I do.

In the meantime, look at the video below.  It will tell you in more detail about what I found when updating to the latest driver.

That’s all; have fun…

  1. Hi

    Thank you for the information. When I opened the Wacom Center it told me the update was not appropriate for my Wacom. Maybe that helps.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up Skip! I’ve had drivers unrelated to Wacom that’s done similar things. The good news is that if it does happen, most of the time it’s easy to fix.

    • Hi Rich…
      Yep…the second day I had played a bit and learned a bit more. I met with my buddy, Tim Shelbourne and if the truth be known, I think he had figured all out before we met. He was very helpful.
