Older WACOM Pen Tablets under Windows 10

10. April 2021








Older WACOM Pen Tablets under Windows 10

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

Alexander

I am a full-stack developer. My expertise include:

  • Server, Network and Hosting Environments
  • Data Modeling / Import / Export
  • Business Logic
  • API Layer / Action layer / MVC
  • User Interfaces
  • User Experience
  • Understand what the customer and the business needs

 

I love programming,  design and know my way around server architecture as well.  I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.

I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.

Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same.  I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
