I wanted to install my very old Wacom CTE-430 (Sapphire) pen pad on my new system with Windows 10. Tried several latest drivers from Wacom, but they didn’t work. At the end, found a driver that worked: PenTablet_5.2.4-5 – you may download it from their repository.
It works with Windows 7 compatibility mode. So you must enable compatibility settings.
Second problem with it: in my new Photoshop, pressure won’t work with Wacom pen. The problem has something to do with new Windows Ink settings. More info is here.
I was able to make it work. Added
PSUSerConfig.txt file into
[Installation Drive]:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 Settings
PSUSerConfig.txt should contain only plain text:
# Use WinTab
Just download it and put into
[Installation Drive]:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC YOURVERSION\Adobe Photoshop CC YOURVERSION Settings
Now I could draw in Photoshop with Wacom, as it should be, with variable pressure. See illustration above.
Update for Photoshop 2017 from 30/11/2016
After multiple Windows and Photoshop updates Wacom driver stopped working again, but I just copied
PSUSerConfig.txt file to newer Photoshop folder (C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 Settings) from older one and it is started to have pressure again.
Also disabled all Pen Settings buttons to Off and Nothing before, but without
PSUSerConfig.txt file it didn’t help.
