Hello Everyone,

I have a Lenovo Flex 5 transformer laptop, which I quite like. However, it is not powerful enough for me to use it's touch screen and pen functionality for sculpting in Blender. Thus, I decided I wanted to try and turn it into a tablet for my other PC, which is custom built. Here is the process I went through and the issues I have ran into:

I have used Remote Desktop Connect to connect my Lenovo Laptop to the PC. Everything works fine, the pen sensitivity, the touch functionality - I am able to utilize the input hardware of my Lenovo laptop to control my PC. However, I have ran into trouble when I tried installing drivers for my Lenovo Active Pen. I have 2 buttons on my Lenovo Active Pen and I require them in order to utilize the pen correctly in programs like Blender and other programs.

  1. I installed the Lenovo Pen Setting APP from the following link (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/lenovo-pen-settings/9mvlwt5dmskr#activetab=pivot:overviewtab)
  2. I opened the app after installing it, and it prompted me with the following: View: https://imgur.com/gallery/2X8DDJo
"This App Requires the Wacom Pen Driver to be installed"
  1. I click on the provided link and go to the following page, where I download the driver: https://us.wacom.com/en/feeldriver/?dlid=93b9f9
  2. I install the driver, but the following error pops up: View: https://imgur.com/gallery/QBu7P2a
" A supported tablet was not found on this system"

And that's where I am stuck currently. I tried installing various Wacom tablet drivers on my PC, but they never show up in the Device manager.

Any and all help would be appreciated!!
