  • Strange enough, none of the solutions worked for me. I had to roll back to a PREVIOUS driver version, This might not work for everyone though, In my case, it happened that in the middle of an automatic update through the Wacom driver services, windows froze and I had to force-start thus threw everything topsy-turvy.
    Try rolling back!
