What this guide aids you to do is ditch the dumbdumb pressure settings of the Wacom drivers and make your own manually along a three-point curve.
So for example, though before you could select "Soft" settings, it didn't change the fact that you still had to press super hard to get to that 1024st level of sensitivity.
But by following the guide, you can change these to anything you want, and set the middle point wherever you please. I opted to keep a linear pressure setting, and to reduce the nullified pressure from 40 to 10 so that, just as with real media, if I touch the stylus to the Cintiq super lightly then I get a correspondingly super light line. I don't know for certain whether the "click threshold" setting of Wacom's driver lets me reduce as much as I did; it doesn't seem as if it did.
So now my pressure curve is as follows:
10, 409, 818
which means I only have to use about 80 percent of the same force upon the stylus I was using before to reach full pressure.
Now it's so much easier to play with the whole range. It's really made using the Cintiq feel a lot more natural, and it makes calibration within programs easier too.
Righto, have fun, keep well hydrated, try baking your own pizza it's so much cheaper than buying, exfoliate at least once a week, take it easy, bye.

I noticed that when I changed that when I alter the click threshold in the driver, it changes some numbers in the property above the pressure setting in the configuration file. Wonder how these work.
EDIT: Ok, those properties I mentioned are the 'UpperPressureThreshold 41' and 'LowerPressureThreshold 33' (those values are the default).
I adjusted the click threshold down to the 2nd notch from the lowest and the values were changed in the configuration to 20 and 12 respectively.
This did not affect the pressure curve. Now my pen is really sensitive.

You may want to extend the search to hidden system files too. Application Data, is usually hidden from users in case something goes wrong. That's why you probably can't see or find it. You need to make sure those are not hidden system files.
i don't know about vista, but i tried windows 7 these days. it's pretty similar to vista, though. first unhide system protected files and file extensions from control panel. then go to your windows partition (e.g. c) and look for the folder users (it's Documents and settings equivalent from XP) go under your user name -> app data -> roaming (the path may not be exactly like this, but pretty close, i'm on xp now). i couldn't find it either when using the search function.
