The issue

WACOM is known for stopping support for their pen tablets after some years, especially for the cheaper consumer pen tablets.

The WACOM Bamboo (in my case the CTH-461) is a pretty popular pen tablet and the latest driver wont install natively under Windows 10. Really frustrating for hardware that is still in perfect shape.

The solution

  1. Download latest available driver from Wacom
  2. Do not install the software directly yet.
  3. Right click on the downloaded file and choose “Properties”
  4. Click Compatibility on the popup
  5. Activate “Run this program in compatibility mode for”, choose Windows 8.
  6. Now you can install the driver & software.
  7. Enjoy
