Wacom Tablets + Vista = Pressure Sensitivity


Recommended Posts

I don't remember this being mentioned before...

A quick FYI for everyone with a Wacom tablet;

The latest drivers from Wacom enable all the Tablet PC features on ANY PC

Which means that anyone with Vista and a Wacom Tablet now has pressure sensitivity support in Paint.Net :D

Any Vista PC, or any PC?

hmmm, I probably could have worded that better :oops:

In the old days of XP, it was only possible to get the tablet features if you had both specific hardware and 'XP Tablet Edition'.

Now, you don't require a "Tablet PC" to enjoy the extra features; All you need is a Wacom tablet and a PC running Vista Home Premium, Vista Business, or Vista Ultimate...

Despite a lot of negative publicity, there is actually a lot of things to like about Vista; after 2 months of using it, I find going back to XP quite painfull :shock:

Just thought I'd put this somewhere in the forums so it might show up in search results.

I have a UCPen (UGEE) tablet (Taiwanese company). Pressure sensitivity does work in Paint.NET in Vista after:


  • Installing the Vista drivers from the website
    and (important) enabling "Support Tablet PC Feature"

The second step is what got me; otherwise, it can't use Tablet PC features (obviously).

How do you do this? You said it was important but never told how.

Also, if you are struggling with this and can't get it to work. It's important to note that you need to restart Paint.net after installing the tablet drivers if you had it open when you installed them...

Necroposting galore.

Three months is the limit before the topic is classified as 'dead', it has been a full year.

Thank you for your input, cmcculloh, but don't forget the Rules (in this case, [rule=11]Rule 11[/rule]). You're more than welcome to return and post again :).

Speaking of input...

How do you do this? You said it was important but never told how.
If you're on a Tablet PC, looking at documentation for it might help, or Google for the answer. As I can imagine that pressure sensitivity is a rather important feature for Tablet PCs, I don't think you'd be too hard-pushed to find something.
