UC-Logic WP8060-TAB08 using PenTablet Simulated driver for HID Minidriver – not pentab not wintab not well designed

pentablet driver WinDDK

among other curiosities it installs one HID, two mice, and one tablet device. AFAIK Wacom has patented the no-battery stylus, so this tablet’s stylus uses one AAA battery. $35 from retailer + $7 shipping. Recently discovered there’s a $20 rebate available!

Install drivers, connect tablet, enjoy the plethora of new devices!

now: FOUR HIDs, three HID mice, and one tablet:

UC-logic illogical device design

Most tablet-capable programs use the Wintab32.dll interface. In more recent incarnations of pen-based computing, I discover that Wintab has been discarded in favor of wisptis.exe (Windows Ink Services). There is also a shift to HID-based devices exclusively.
