Performance Issues on Vista
* There are Vista performance issues due to a conflict between SketchBook Pro and Vista’s Input Services. These services automatically start up whenever a tablet driver is installed and interacts with the tablet for hand writing recognition and more. The services affect performance, the mapping of stylus buttons, and more. For ideal performance when using SketchBook, Input Services should be disabled. 
NOTE Once you restart your machine, Vista’s Input Services turn back on.
To disable Input Services:
1. Go to the Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
2. Double-click the Services shortcut to open the Services window, which lists all the services available through Vista.
3. Scroll down the list and right-click Tablet PC Input Service.
4. Select Stop from the menu provided. Input Services is now disabled and your Wacom driver takes over.

Disabling Pen and Touch v2

Searching around a bit, and what worked for me was a combination of things.

  1. First I tried to go to the Control Panel and click on my Pen and Touch settings. Disable both thePress and hold action and theStart Tablet PC Input Panel
  2. Next, in the same window under the Flicks tab, uncheck the Use flicks to perform common actions quickly and easily . Press OK to save and close.
  3. Next go to the Programs and Features option in the Control Panel . Select theTurn Windows feature on or off option on the left of the window. A new window will open with all the Windows features.
  4. Scroll down to Tablet PC Components and uncheck the option. Apply the changes. Windows will do some ____ and then ask you to restart for the changes to take effect. Restart and you're done.

I don't know if I'm doing it wrong or what, but that is what it took me to make the Wacom usable. I remember doing something similar in Windows Vista but it wasn't as complicated, I think it was in Tablet PC Settings in the control panel but that dick jackshit for me in Windows 7.

If it still doesn't work...

You need to go to Run (Windows Key + R) type in msconfig and hitEnter . On the pop up go toServicestab. Sort the services by name to make it easier to find. look forTable PC Input Sevice and uncheck it. Leave all other Wacom services as it is. ClickOK and restart. I hope this helps...

If it still dosent work kill the process wisptis.exe then go to the windows\system32 folder and find that file and rename it wisptis.exe.renamed
