    Photoshop won't recognize tablet pen pressure. Have tried everything. Help?

    voldkae Level 1

      Photoshop suddenly stopped recognizing pen pressure from my tablet yetsterday.

      I'm using a Wacom Bamboo Connect tablet on a Windows 8 computer with Photoshop CS6


      I've tried:

      1. uninstalling the drivers

      2. checking wintab files were gone from system32 and sysWOW64

      3. restarting

      4. reinstalling drivers

      5. checking new wintab files are present

      6. restarting

      I updated photoshop (and repeated those 5 steps), reinstalling the drivers as an admin, reset the paintbrush tool, but no matter what I do, when I go to the Shape Dynamics option in Photoshop, I get the triangle with the exclamation point telling me that I need a pressure sensitive tablet.

      I've tried plugging the tablet in and then opening photoshop.

      I've tried opening Photoshop and then plugging in the tablet.

      I updated the drivers for all of the hardware on my computer.


      I've tried the pressure sensitivity in two other (non Adobe) programs and it works there, so it doesn't seem like a problem with the tablet itself.


      I've tried every solution I could find online but none of them seem to be working for me. Any advice?
