Hurricane Florence Alert:
A rather large hurricane is set to hit the East Coast of the United States at the end of this week. Because of its size and threat to life & property there have already been significant evacuations in the areas expected to be hit worst. Hopefully things do not turn out as bad, but we will probably see shipping delays to and from that area (our North America distribution center is in Memphis, TN, close to the area).
If you are in the US region and you order something during this period, please see check for possible alerts.

Cintiq 13HD: Installation Stops Programmes from Running

Postby SickandTired » Wed 13. Sep 2017, 22:52


I have just bought a Cintiq 13HD. I have had no issue what so ever with the installation of the tablet or the calibration of the pen, but as soon as the tablet is installed, some of my other applications already on my laptop, no longer open.

I was using Paint Tool Sai previously and before the download it worked fine, now however once the tablet was installed, it no longer opens. I also had Origin installed and that also can't be opened. This evening I have tried to uninstall Orgin and re-install it, but having the tablet plugged in stops the download and doesn't allow it to start, again if I unplugged the tablet, it would work.

If I go to task manager and right click to end Wacom tasks, everything works again, except the tablet...

I have tried uninstalling Sai and starting again, which hasn't worked. I have uninstalled and re-installed the tablet itself three times and nothing. I have been scouting the internet for solutions or answers but nothing!

Has this happened to anybody else, or does anybody know what's wrong? I went onto the products page on Wacom and I can't see anything about having a compatibility issue with my laptop, it is an Acer which came with Windows 8 and was updated to Windows 10.

Thank you for any help
Always sick and tired...

Cintiq 13HD: Installation Stops Programmes from Running - Resolved

Postby SickandTired » Thu 14. Sep 2017, 19:58


Half an hour after I posted this I managed to resolve the issue. I am posting the resolve here in the hopes that the way I resolved it might help someone else.


When I got my new CINTIQ, I hadn't uninstalled my OLD Bamboo Wacom Tablet software, I think the two didn't work well on the same device and stopped my apps from opening. I use a laptop with Windows 10 installed. Go to the start button, type in 'Add or Remove Programs' and search for your OLD bamboo software, when you find it click on it and select UNINSTALL and when requested to do so, restart your laptop. Then boot it back up and re-install your NEW CINTIQ software! And then I hope your apps work again, cause this drove me nuts!

Hope it helps!
