Pen Pressure issues

I'm using Windows 8.1, with a Wacom Intuous Pro Medium tablet, with the latest driver (6.3.8-4)

I installed Photoshop CC 2014 this afternoon, and ever since I've had a lot of random, intermittent issues with the pen pressure. It works fine in Illustrator, but in Photoshop, under the Brush panel, the Pen Pressure option has an alert sign next to it, and simply doesn't recognise the tablet as being pressure sensitive. Sometimes, if I turn on "Windows Ink" under the mapping tab, it occasionally works, but not always. And having Windows Ink checked makes selecting things in any other application very laggy (and makes working in Indesign near-impossible)

Cheers in advance

Photoshop CC 2014 changes stylus use to use Microsoft system API's, with these API's you need to have Windows Ink enabled. These API's give better stroke results and improve the out of the box experience for users using Windows tablet/convertible devices. If you want to go back to the old WinTab implementation of previous versions do the following:Create a file that contains instructions to revert to the WinTab functionality.Create a text file in a text editor such as Notepad.Type in the followi...

This method is very good. I´ve been using it for a couple of years. BUT... today, I upgraded to an Wacom Intuos Pro Medium, and unfortunately with WinTab turned on, Photoshop doesn´t recognize the pen TILT. Which is one of the reasons I bought it. So I switched back to Windows Ink, but then I have that lag when you try to drag something, which gets in the way to change the brush size fast (alt+right click+drag) and moving the canvas... anything that requires drag. SO, I wanted to know:

a. Is there a way turn on the tilt sensitivity with Wintab somehow?

or

b. Is there a way to remove the lag from Windows Ink?

I appreciate any support!

Why the heck would I ever have to do this fix?  Wacom, Adobe and Microsoft Relationship has to be so close that I am amazed I would have to do this.   This was never a problem until I turn off Windows Ink because it was getting in the way of the tablet and painting.

Windows 10 Pro, Up to date.  Intuos Pro Small.  Latest Drivers

Crazy...  Crazy...

Thank you for workaround just amazed that I had to do this....

I found the solution for the Brush Size/Hardness Bug for Photoshop CC 2019.  It's a Window's Ink issue.  Here's a Youtube video that I found going over the  steps:

Anyone else notice that the latest update of Photoshop CC 21.1 does not like the PSUserConfig file? My Lasso tool goes completely bonkers now.

Guys, these old threads can be confusing and convoluted.  You'd be much better off starting a new thread stating your issue, operatings system, Photoshop version etc.  FWIIW  I don't appear to be having any issues with my system.
