    When I installed it on my VivoTab Note 8 the cursor was implying that the Ctrl key was active (there was a "Ctrl" tooltip next to the cursor). Also, when I tried to put the device into sleep it instantly woke again. Removing the Wacom driver stopped this behaviour.

    I don't initially care much about Wacom Feel, from OS perspective, all hardware driver are treated equally. My tablet working fine, the problem happen only after I've heard about Wacom feel then try to update it to the latest version as I always do to other hardware. In case you want to try, do a backup and set a restore point. More over, after a driver update, there is a option to roll back in the Device Manager. This way of dealing with hardware driver had been addressed since Windows XP.

    If it doesn't work then some thing wrong with your SB, Notebook 9 Pro device.
    If it is the correct electronic chip and the chip is working normally, the is no reason it could't talk to the software that designed for it.

    Update:
    There is reason to think something wrong with your Samsung device.
    It is nothing special that Linux can not manage to handle

    Update 2:
    If you can upload your /Windows/system32 folder, I am willing to risk up messing my tablet to test Samsung driver on a non Samsung Wacom EMR tablet!

    Thanks to the new Win 10 update some kind of Wacom Pen driver magically reinstalled itself on my Cube tablet and now the pen is unusable again, and since wacom didn't fixed the issues with Wacom Feel IT I would need to remove it, expect I can't, once the driver is installed I don't know any way to remove it, it's just sit in the Control Panel doing nothing but harm. This kind of madenning s***t is just what I wanted for the holidays.

    I'd heard from Wacom that they were going to be offering drivers via Windows Update. I'll check it out and see if I can confirm that. What's wrong with your pen after the installation?

    @Spraaq I was able to confirm that Windows Update installs a version of the Wacom driver that is incompatible with the Cube. You can uninstall the driver as you would any program, but Windows Update will keep trying to install the incorrect version.

    I solved this by uninstalling the driver and NOT rebooting. I then went to the Wacom site and downloaded and installed version 7.3.4-47, which is compatible with the Creators Update. After rebooting and running Windows Update, it no longer offers the incompatible version.

    Hope that helps.

    WHAT. *frantically double checks that all driver updates via Windows Update are disabled*

    Ok, all good, tablet pc driver is on the list of DO NOT INSTALL. Thank god I wrote this stuff down.

    FYI for anyone who wants to do the same:

    1. First, you will need to find the device id of your tablet pc driver. Use devmanview or device manager to figure this out.

    2. If you have Windows 10 Pro, you can use set a group policy to prevent installations of any devices that match your device id. It's located at Computer configuration > Administrative templates > System > Device Installation > Device Installation restrictions

    3. If you have Windows 10 Home, I think you need to make registry edits. Don't do this unless you know what you're doing. Back up your registry first before changing anything. The location, as far as I can tell, is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > DriverDatabase > Policies > Restrictions > DenyDeviceIDs

    Right click and create a new string value. Name it 1 (and the next one 2, 3, etc.). Right click the key > modify. Put the device id in the value data. One device id per key.

    -

    Again, seriously do not attempt above unless you're comfortable mucking about your registry. I'm not responsible for anything you do. The group policy setting is much easier, but it's not available in Win10Home.

    Hello ninjas!!

    First off I love this site and owe allot to all of you. As for this thread, (I can move this to another thread too), I have a thinkpad p51 with touch and AES pen support. Love the machine, only thing is that I cannot install any of the feel drivers to be able to customize the side buttons on the lenovo pen. I also have a wacom bamboo ink pen that works great but ofcourse I can fidn anywhere to customize its buttons as well. The pen supports hover clicking but when I do so to either side buttons it just makes a little circle, no hover right click. Any help on this from you experts would be greatly appreciated. Maybe a feel driver for a similar lenovo laptop? Thanks ahead of time for your help!

    You might re-post this in the Thinkpad P51 thread here:

    http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/thinkpad-p51-with-touchscreen-and-thinkpad-pen-pro.73003/

    Forum member fluffyfurball owned the same machine at one point and may still be running it. You might bounce a question in that direction if nobody answers.

    Cheers!
