[Update on 2013–06–23] Please go here: The Windows and Wacom Tablet Nightmare is Over
Thanks to one of the readers of my previous post on the topic of Wacom tablets and Windows 8, there may be something that will remove the dynamic feedback effects.
Because I still do not believe this is the correct, long-term fix, I haven't incorporated into my Fix My Pen tool yet. Instead I've made a .REG file available that makes the changes.
The file is located here: http://sdrv.ms/ZW9CNG
The name of the file is win8-disable-pen-dynamic-feedback.reg
Please download the .REG file, and run it. It will prompt you to make some registry changes, please let it do so. Once it is finished, you will probably have to reboot to see the effect. I can confirm it works on my system, but would like to see how well it works for others.
The contents of the .REG file are below
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
The .REG file is based on the comments found on this thread: http://forum.wacom.eu/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11674 (see the comment made by Wacom on Mon 12. Nov 2012, 10:42)
