Setting Up A Wacom Intuos3 Without The CD


I’ve just borrowed a Wacom Intuos3 graphics tablet off my brother.  However he’d lost the CD that came with it so I had to root around on the internet to get it working on my Microsoft Windows 8.1 laptop.

Now that it is up and running I thought I’d write a quick article about downloading and installing the latest Wacom drivers in case anyone else found it useful.

Step 1:  Identify The Tablet

The way to do this is to look at the sticker on the back of the tablet and then consult this Wacom page:

I found the drivers I needed from this page:


Step 3:  Run The Executable file

Once downloaded, I ran the executable file (WacomTablet_6.3.11-4a.exe) which begins by extracting files:


Step 4:  Accept The License Agreement


Step 5:  Reboot Your Computer

When the installation completed, it asked me to restart.


Step 6:  Check The Installed Apps

Just to make sure, I checked the Installed Apps screen after the reboot to see if the Wacom software was present.


Step 7:  Connect The Tablet

I connected the tablet’s USB cable and Windows started installing the Micosoft onscreen keyboard.


Once this is completed, you will see a new keyboard icon in your systray at the bottom right corner of your screen:


Step 8:  Start Using Your Graphics Tablet

Mission accomplished!
