New Wacom Tablet Drivers For PC


Hey Gang,

Wacom released a new driver today for the PC users, which will bring us up to the same version as the Macs: 6.3.4-3.  Here is the info provided by Wacom for this driver:

Driver supports Intuos5 (PTH), Intuos4 (PTK) and Intuos3 (PTZ) pen tablets and the Cintiq 24HD Touch, Cintiq 24HD, Cintiq22HD, Cintiq 21UX, Cintiq 12WX, Cintiq 20WSX, DTU-2231, DTU-1931 and DTU-1631 pen displays.

Save the file to your computer and then double-click on it to launch the installer.

Release Notes:

  • Added support for Windows 8
  • Added new Windows 8 1-finger “swipe” gestures
  • Implemented enhancements to the touch user interface
  • Other enhancements and bug fixes

Be sure to uninstall any current tablet driver installation before installing.

Note: If you are a left-handed pen user and use an Intuos5 or Cintiq 24HD touch, select your handedness in the “Options…” dialog box of the Wacom Tablet Properties control panel to enable proper functioning of palm rejection.

If you have any questions, please contact Wacom Technical Support at 800-922-6613.

Well that’s it folks.  I’ve downloaded mine and will install tomorrow.  Wacom Drivers, Americas.

PS:  I understand the Bamboo Drivers will be out Nov 16th.

I am unsure if the driver is posted for other regions; it is available for the Americas.

Wacom Posts New Drivers…April 23, 2012


Hello Everyone,

I am slipping.  I totally missed that Wacom posted new drivers on April 23, 2012.  I checked Wacom Europe and it doesn’t look like the driver  posted there, yet.  I did not check any other regions.

I didn’t notice any new features.

Don’t forget to back up your settings by opening the Wacom Tablet Preference File Utility prior to the new install.  I always uninstall the current driver before installing the new one.  Once installed, I restore my settings using the Wacom Tablet Preference File Utility.  This makes it easy to reset the tablet to my custom preferences.

Check for new drivers here.  The new driver is for the intuos and cintiq lines…and includes the Intuos 5, too.

Enjoy,

New Wacom Driver has been Posted


Hello Everyone,

This is just a quick announcement to let you know that the Intous Wacom Driver I announced here is now back up and available for download.  I didn’t check for Cintiq or other Wacom Products.  I am not sure this is available for other countries or not.  The driver I downloaded indicated it was World Wide except for Eruope, Africa, and the Middle East.  Check at the Wacom site for those countries.  Wacom added a new feature.  You can see my video about it here.

That’s all for now…post again soon,

Wacom Driver 11/17/2012 Adds Enhanced Feature


UPDATE:  The drivers are no longer on the site as of 11/29/2011 10:36 PM.  Hopefully they will be posted again, soon.  I do not know if there was a problem or if it is just a problem with the web site.  Hopefully we will find something out soon.

Sorry for the problem…Skip

Hello Everyone,

I just noticed that there is a new Wacom driver available.  There is a new feature or enhanced feature; they changed and improved  the old “Tip Feel Slider” with the detail button.  I find the new version more intuitive than the old version.  I don’t think the driver is available anywhere except the Americas.  I checked Europe and didn’t see it there.

I did a quick video showing the enhanced feature.  Hope you enjoy it.

Have some fun today,

Wacom Intuos and Cintiq Driver Update for MAC OS X v 10.7, 10.6, and 10.5 (Intel)


Hey Folks,

On October 13, 2011, Wacom released a new driver for the Americas (the United States, Canada, and Latin America).  I glanced at Europe and it didn’t look like the driver was available for that region yet; I didn’t check any others.

There isn’t a new driver for the PC since the one released on Sept 13, 2011.

I suspect this is a significant update.  MAC users…go get it!

Thanks Carlos for letting me know about the update.
