    No problem. Thanks for the clarification.

    Anyone using W10 version 1803 yet?
    Feedback Hub is showing a number of people who are reporting Wacom having stopped working.

    I stongly recommend W10 users to read Woody Leonhard's articles on the PCWorld website before upgrading Windows.
    It contains a running commentary on how MS are doing or not doing in fixing the bugs that arrive with the updates.
    Seems like a lot of updaters to 1803 have encountered Skype and MS Edge not working after theupdate. Go figure.
    Woody recommends that those who can should set their updates to delay 6 months.

    What version of FeelIT driver are you running?
    Mine recognize a pen, but as soon as I tap the screen with it it loses connection and finger touch only.

    I haven't actually switched to 1803 yet. I hesitate to use the word upgrade. I have now lost all confidence in MS.
    I am using the pen driver 7209.
    I would certainly recommend going back to 1709 if you possibly can. Wait 6 months. Let others iron out the problems.
    A way to stop any automatic re-upgrading would be to fill your tablet with stuff so there is less than 6GB free space. You will be pestered by reminders. They may stop after a while.
    Or you might get a reply from someone who has found a solution.
    Sorry I can't be more positive.
    However, I now strongly recommend following Woody Leonhard's column.

    Anything specific to the pen I should look out for?

    Seems like mine is working. Pressure near the edges seems a bit off but that could be my new screen protector. Updated to 1803 a while back.

    Thanks. It's good news you have it working.
    I have read reports of the pen dragging the background instead of drawing a line and Kumabjorn reports above that her pen loses connection.
    What pen driver are you using, by the way?

    I can't believe that this thread is still alive. Pretty much any other 2gb Windows 8 era Atom tablet is obsolete by now.
    My last AVTN8s are sitting in drawers because of a cracked screen and broken charging port.
