I have installed the serial version of the wacom tablet, and it works OK, with the latest drivers, but,each time the PC starts a message comes up, saying that it is building a driver data base, like it did when i first installed it, anyone any idea why..........thanks.
Should be worth checking in Device Manager and even a look in msconfig (Startup) to see what is there.
I still use an "old" wacom serial tablet, which has survived in different boxes and os installations. Though it is not ticked in Startup and is the first thing on the screen, disappearing before the full desktop appears it works fine when I want it. (This is Win98SE by the way.)
Have had a table since Win95 days and they have all had a serial connection. These days there is little sign of conflicts and IRQ bother but it used to be quite tricky to have a mouse, tablet and modem all on comX intY and then there was the sound card.
I'm sorry but the only thing I can think of is the time honoured procedure of disconnection, removal of drivers, reboot with nothing attached, and then reboot again with the tablet reconnected and once more install the drivers.
