    The program should "force" to create Backup directory, but its not possible if there are no rights to do it. And that is i hope what is causing the error.

    I released a new version of Tool with improved support of Vista. And I tried to fix the folder problem. Now the program under vista asks for admin rights (its impossible to start and stop tablet service without it).

    I there will be any other problem (or the solution did not work) please report it by mail or post message on the web address (homepage) displayed in the program.

    Still folder problems under XP.
    So you still have to manually create the various folders.

    I'll post further bugs I find under the program homepage! Thanks for working on it :3

    Second try to fix this. More details at program homepage (i think this should not be a bug report thread) but just brief - If "it is it" than it is caused by different locale settings. In some system (mostly English) is date format e.g. 17/07/2009 (Czech is 17.07.2009) and this in backup File Name looks like folders for the program...
    So... it should be fixed now.

    Edit : 18.7.2009 - Confirmed The Bug-fix works .o)

    Thanks Genko, it was really helpful.

    Lightbulb Changing the pressure sensitivity of an Wacom Intuos 4 tablet on OSX

    Ok, I'm running OSX (iMac 10.5.7) using an Intuos 4 (L) tablet and I thought I would collate the procedures that other people have mentioned throughout the thread into one post.

    1. Ensure you have closed System Preferences
    2. Launch Activity Monitor
    3. Quit "TabletDriver" and "WacomTabletDriver" preferably in that order.
    4. Open "Users/User Name/Library/Preferences/com.wacom.wacomtablet.prefs" in "TextEdit.app"
    5. Edit the lines starting with "PressureCurveControlPoint" (see attached image) using one of the lines that I've listed below.
    6. Save prefs file that you have edited in TextEdit.app over the original.
    7. Open "/Library/Application Support/Tablet/WacomTabletDriver.app" and relaunch the application.
    8. Open up the Wacom System Preferences (WacomTablet.prefpane) and check the pressure setting works as expected.

    Various settings for Intuos 3

    40 0 512 512 1023 1023 (Default Intuos3 settings)
    40 0 383 511 768 1023 (Tweaked Intuos 3 settings)

    Various settings for Intuos4

    81 0 1024 1024 2047 2047 (Default settings for Intuos 4)
    81 0 870 1024 1740 2047 (85%)
    81 0 819 1024 1637 2047 (80%)
    81 0 768 1024 1535 2047 (75%)

    Seems to work well for me. I prefer the 75% settings.

    Kudos to all the other posters that got me to this point.

    Enjoy.

    Just in case, Vista users have to go to this path:

    C: \Users\"Username"\AppData\Roaming\WTablet

    It changes from the XP. There you can find the dat file.

    Oddly, my tablet wouldn't show up after I adjusted these settings - I may have done something wrong but I really don't think so.
    Anyone else have this happen? I'm on a mac/intous4.
    (I just don't want to have to re-install and lose settings again )
