I believe CS5 onle uses WinTab API for pen support. You need to download the Microsofr WinTab Device driver for the surface Pen.https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49498Dec 8, 2016 - All current software, firmware, and drivers for the Surface Pro 4; including optional WinTab drivers.

That site was for the Surface Pro 4, and I have the Surface book, but either way, I had been to the same site yesterday and downloaded Wintab_x64_126.96.36.199 yesterday, rebooted, still getting that darn exclamation point.
With a Wacom tablet you get the exclamation point till you touch the pen to the tablet did you touch then pen to you display in Photoshop?
I got really excited for a moment, but I tried it and still no avail.
GREAT. WAs Just Trying to get some help and in my haste gave me phone number and skype contact to a
who promised a representative would assist me via skype....
Got suspicious when they asked me for my password and login information and I actually looked at the profile. UGH! Can't believe I almost got trapped like that!!! I panicked and blocked the user from my skype instead of screenshotting the conversation and I can't be more pissed at myself. I am beyond disappointed.
Adobe does not provide technical support via Skype. If you need help always go through the 'Chat' console on the Adobe domain and a tech will remote desktop to your machine if given permission. I would suggest changing your Skype password and also turning off your router for 30 minutes. If you do that your service provider will assign a different IP address to your account and so even if Jessica Zaydan recorded your IP it will be of no use. You can check your current IP by going to Google and typing 'my IP', note down the four numbers and then after switching off your router go back and check it has changed. Some times it takes several goes to get a new IP particularly if you don't leave the router of for some time.
Well luckily I guess I just had a power outage. :/
Update: just found the answer!
Start an elevated command line (hit the windows key, type "cmd", right-click on the Command Prompt and "run as administrator") and paste this registry edit in and hit enter: reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
It resets back to the legacy drawing ability some programs need. Flip it back to the updated drawing behavior in an elevated command line by pasting this and hitting enter: reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
This is all from a Windows Ink employee on this Reddit thread and was the only thing that worked for me (I tried EVERYTHING else):
Note: looks like you also have to have the WinTab drivers installed for this registry edit to fix it.
