Fix: Wacom Tablet Driver Not Found

The error “The Tablet Driver Was Not Found” occurs when your computer fails to fetch and use the driver which is installed for your Wacom tablet. This error may occur on a number occasions such as when the drivers are outdated, not configured properly, or there are some conflicts.

This problem is very common so nothing to worry about. We will start by ending the Wacom service, update its drivers and then move on to other techniques. Follow the solutions given below.

Solution 1: Restarting Wacom Service

We will try restarting the Wacom service as our first step in solving the problem. This will restart the entire procedure, refresh currently stored configurations and try detecting your tablet again.

  1. Press Windows + R to launch the Run application. Type “services.msc” in the dialogue box and press Enter.
  2. Navigate through all the services until you find the one named “TabletServiceWacom”. Right-click it and select “Restart”.

  1. Now check if the problem is solved.

Solution 2: Updating Driver and Reinstalling Programs

If restarting the service doesn’t work, we can try updating the driver. First, we will remove the driver and then uninstall all related applications. Reinstalling the applications and drivers will make sure that all misconfigurations are dealt with and the computer will recognize the tablet like it was plugged for the first time.

  1. Press Windows + R to launch the Run application. Type “devmgmt.msc” in the dialogue box and press Enter. This will launch the device manager.
  2. Navigate through all the devices until you find the category “Human Interface Devices”. Expand it and select “Wacom Tablet”. Right-click it and select “Uninstall Device”.

  1. Press Windows + R to launch the Run application. Type “appwiz.cpl” in the dialogue box and press Enter. A new window will come forth consisting of all the programs installed on your computer.
  2. Navigate through all of them until you find any application related to Wacom. Right-click it and select “Uninstall”. Do this for all the applications which you can find which are related to the tablet.
  3. Press Windows + S to launch the search bar. Type “cmd” in the dialogue box, right-click on the application and select “Run as administrator”.
  4. Once at the command prompt, execute the following instruction:

mklink /j “D:Program FilesTablet” “C:Program FilesTablet”

In this case, the custom location for Program Files is D drive. You can replace “D” with whatever your drive happens to be.

  1. Head over to the Walcom official website and download the latest drivers available. Same them to an accessible location as we will be accessing them later on.
  2. Press Windows + R to launch the Run application. Type “devmgmt.msc” in the dialogue box and press Enter. This will launch the device manager.
  3. Locate Walcom Tablet from the list of devices, right-click it and select “Update driver”.

A new window will pop up asking whether you want to update the drivers automatically or manually. Select the second option (manually). Browse to the location where you downloaded the drivers and install them.

  1. Restart your Wacom device and plug it back in.
  2. Press Windows + R, type “services.msc” in the dialogue box and press Enter.
  3. Navigate through all the services until you find “Wacom Professional Service”. Right-click it and select “Restart”. Now check if the problem is solved.

Solution 3: Creating a Batch File (If Solution 1 Works)

If you have Wacom tablet working every time you use method one, you can create a batch file on your desktop. This will make it easy for you to restart the service without having to open the services and restart it manually again and again.

  1. Right-click on your Desktop and select “New Text Document”.
  2. Type the following code in the text document:

@echo off

NET STOP WTabletServicePro

timeout /t 5 / nobreak > NUL

NET START WTabletServicePro

timeout /t 2 / nobreak > NUL

  1. Save the file to your Desktop. Now rename it and set the name as “bat”. Make sure that you remove the .txt extension and replace it .bat

You can click this and it will automatically restart the service so the problem gets fixed. If simply clicking it prompts a UAC error, right-click it and select “Run as administrator”.

Note: If you are having difficulty updating the drivers, make sure that there isn’t a third party application monitoring your actions (Antivirus). You can temporarily disable it and then continue with the operation.

Solution 4: Try plugging in another port

If all the above methods don’t work, you should make sure that your tablet is connected properly to a working USB port. Try plugging the device into other ports present on your computer and check if it works there. If you have a spare USB hub lying around, plug it there too and check. If you are unsure about your USB ports, try plugging the tablet into another computer and check if it works there. If it does, troubleshoot through all the steps mentioned above again and figure out why your computer is giving the problem.
