It’s that time again; there are some new Wacom Tablet Drivers available for PC. Wacom posted the drivers on 4/27/2016 and I saw them, but at that time, the new 27″ QHD, 27″ QHD Touch, 22″ HD, 22″ HD touch Cintiqs plus the Cintiq Companion 2 were the only products suggested for the update. So, I didn’t post about it. However, a couple of funny things happened with my display and I wasn’t sure if it was the Cintiq or the Video Card. There was a recent video card update, which I applied, but it didn’t seem to help. So I kept checking my Wacom Desktop Center for updates. The Center continued to tell me no updates were available. As a double-check, I went to Wacom site. Surprise, now the products listed for the new driver included my Cintiq 24″ HD Touch. Wacom listed the Intuos Pro and Intuos models, too. Oddly, as I go down the page, the old posting for the Cintiq HD 24″ touch is still showing. I can’t find the links for the older products anymore. It seems confusing to me.
I don’t understand why the Wacom Desktop Center doesn’t notify me about updates. Sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t.
Anyway, I am giving the new driver a try. If you decide to try it, don’t forget to back up your settings. disconnect your tablet, uninstall the current driver, re-start, install the new driver, re-start, and then connect your tablet again.
