8's not available here. I figure if the tablet works then use it as is. It didn't install anything really onto my system either. Try it the way Black-December recommended. He's on a bit of a break right now.
I tried it that way when I first got Windows 8, it didn't work. I actually got it working by installing the drivers with the tablet plugged in - it didn't work at this point - restarting my PC and then unplugging and replugging the tablet in. Windows 8 then recognized the tablet and went through the typical device recognition and driver installation process. Then the tablet icon for the Huion showed up in the notification area and the tablet started working, pressure and all. But then I can't access the settings at all. When I click on the tablet icon in the notification area I get the circular loading icon for Windows but nothing comes up. Oh well, hopefully they'll update their drivers sometime soon
Even with the Huoin updates it still doesn't read it as installed. I'm just using it as is now with the pen and tablet working and being able to use them. It's not a bad tablet, just the settings are screwy Good luck and I hope they update sometime soon too
I'd start with uninstalling the software you tried to install, make sure it's gone then restart to get the system back to normal, then fully shut down your computer so it shuts right off. Then plug in the tablet and start it up. Once in windows It should act like a mouse, and the pointer will move around absent the software but it won't have point recognition. Now with the tablet plugged in, install the software and see if ot gains point recognition, if so, then calibrate it and try it out. If not, then restart your computer. it should work. Don't install the software when the tablet is not plugged in. Sometimes that messes with it. Remember, most of the time you hVe to have the tablet plugged in before powering up the computer.
If this doesn't work, get you windows installation software and look specifically for software related to drivers. Often when computers came with a wireless mouse, standard mouse software is not installed, even though the drivers disk will have the software for it and many other program drivers your computer may not need, hence why they were not installed. Install anything that looks like mouse or tablet/pen software. You can't hurt your computer by installing driver software for hard ware it doesn't have, so don't worry about getting it wrong and use auto detect for any recognition issues. Once the mouse/pen software is installed, restart and follow the steps above. I'm not a computer genius but I've had issues with drivers and tablets on two computers, this solved it.
Thanks Black Solved the problem straight away Got it too work, struggling with calibrating the pen but I'll get it sorted. Lines come out very light. I'm going to kidnap a Chinese person today to translate the user manual for me so I can get it all sorted and I can start on my road to greatness and fame...and cake, lots of cake!!
I'm glad it's working, calibration can be a bit of a pain but I usually get it worked out to meet my comfort zone where I do most of my pen work. As for light lines try adjusting the sensitivity so it's a bit more touchy, put it to max if needed, that adjustment should be found in the pen section of the tablet settings, hopefully thats not in Chinese. If you use both paintool SAI and Photoshop, it's helpful to set your shortcut keys to things you use all the time, I have 8 buttons on one side, and 8 on the other, I disable the left buttons because I just don't need a ton of short cuts. But of the 8 left buttons I reserve for short cuts common to both programs at the top of the short cut keys. I like to have the top one set to Alt, for quick color sampling, I rarely use the given colors after I'm rolling, I just use Alt sample, next I like to set the space bar as a short cut, it allows for quick scrolling of the screen without being too choppy. The next i set to Ctrl-z for Undo. After that I set Ctrl-d for deselecting dotted line exclusion zones which are a pain to deselect in PS. Then I set my touch pad to zoom, some tablets have a touch wheel for zoom adjust. The pen I set the forward rocker to "Alt" as well for color sample, and the rear rocker to right click for PS brushes short cut. SAI brushes are on screen accessible so I don't worry about them. I use to set all my buttons for different functions but found I did most everything else manually. That and sometimes my computer forgets my short cut settings, so haveing only a few makes resetting them easy. Enjoy the tablet
Got it figured Mostly anyways but there's more to come and lots of time to get it all figgered out and play around and not throw it against the wall or anything I just don't have that many buttons which is good right now, confusticating things can come laters
