I have a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet, photoshop CS6 and Windows 7.  I have no idea why, but the pressure sensitivity of my tablet won't work anymore.  I did a search on google to see if others had had the same problem, on a forum (I can't remember where) I found a solution that seems to have worked for many so I tried that...  Roughly, it said to uninstall my wacom driver, unplug the tablet, reboot, install driver, plug in the tablet and reset my preferences in photoshop.  I've done this last night and it worked, I was thrilled but it was late, was exhausted, so I turned off my computer and went to bed.  When I turned it back on and went in photoshop this morning it didn't work anymore, pressure sensitivity was gone again.  I get this little warning in my brush settings when I try to put it on Pen Pressure or tilt or other setting that requires pressure sensitivity, but it doesn't tell me how to fix it.  The only way I can get it to work is with the process I mentionned (uninstalling driver, unplugging tablet, rebooting etc...) but I'd need to do this every time I shut down my computer and that's a bit of a pain...  I've also tried installing different drivers, the latest one first, when that didn't work I tried older ones to see if it would make a difference to no avail...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  I'm starting to feel a little desperate...

I did read your post and found nothing that contradicts my statements.  But we've looked into these issues many times - and this sort of problem is due to the driver or hardware.Yes, if you don't know the code or APIs involved, you might jump to bad conclusions.But I do know what all is involved (and the fact that the Adobe apps don't share tablet code), and have sat down and debugged these issues more times than I can recall.Please follow up with Wacom to determine the problem with your drivers...

Hey there, i know this is over 7 years later, but i've encountered the same problem in 2020. After some digging, i found that neither Photoshop, nor Wacom were causing this problem, at least not in 2020. The problem was Windows Ink. I had that disabled with a text file(PSUserConfig) in the Photoshop settings before, and after i deleted them, the file was gone and Windows Ink was enabled again. After i made a new file to disable it again, the issue was gone. Please highlight this message so anyone who stumbles upon this issue and this post in the future can find the solution.
