[Problem] Windows 7 64it, Wacom Tablet, Mouse, 3DConnexion controller
show user profile  Nik Clark
Hey guys,

Does anybody use Windows 7, a Wacom tablet, a mouse and a 3DConnexion device? Did you find the problem of Windows constantly switching the Wacom off? Did you find a solution?

If so, let me know, one of my artists keeps whinging at me to "fix" his machine, and I can't figure out why it keeps shutting the Wacom off.

Hey mate. Glad to hear it's working for you. The 3DConnextion device is a current one, and we are using the latest drivers.

The odd thing is that we had the same problem under 32bit XP as we are having on 64bit Win7. It's using the latest Wacom and 3DConnexion drivers. I had hoped that upgrading his machine would get round the problem.

I shall persevere, now I know that it can work. Thanks mate.

I don't have a 3DConnexion whatsit, but I do have a Wacom and Windows 7, and yes, it does occasionally give me gip. What's the exact nature of the problem? Does it randomly, on startup, let the Wacom work for about a tenth of a second (letting you move the cursor a tiny bit) then refuse to work at all? That's what I get. The way to fix it is to use the Wacom Tablet Preference File Utility to store a copy of your preferences, and whenever it acts up, just use the Restore function, and it'll work.

I've got the latest driver, by the way, so it wasn't that, at least for me.
