    Extra brushes for Painter 8 appear but don't work

    For obvious reasons, I decided to put Painter 8 on my tablet PC, which runs vista.

    The extra brushes work wonderfully on my desktop which has XP. But, on the laptop the previews are identical and selecting them does not switch to the brush, instead I get a pen that I used before.

    I copied the brushes into /Brushes/Painter Brushes/ the exact same way I did on my desktop (copying picture+folder directly from the CD). Is there something I'm missing?

    in a small triangle to the right of the brush settings it makes it so you can reset default brush settings or something. click that every time you switch brushes i dont know how to fix it totally but you can manually switch it. hope it helped man.

    "Restore default variant" did not work. However, I put one in a different brush category and opened the brush editor on it. It started working after that. But this didn't work on the separate brush groups I added.
