Purchased a new GTCO CalComp DrawingBoard VI digitizer to be used with MicroStation V8i SS2 and Windows7. We have limited success with it working. For example, we have been able to attach matrix menus, but not a command menu. We are also having trouble configuring the 4-button puck - it accepts the changes, but does not keep them.
We installed wintab.exe.
Can you tell me if the following digitizer is compatible with MicroStation V8i and Windows 7:
GTCO Calcomp DrawingBoard VI, 12" x 18", Model DB6 1218
Can the GTCO Calcomp DrawingBoard VI, 36" x 48" digitizer on Windows 10 with Microstation v8i (SelectSeries 10) be made to work with any driver other than the Bentley wintab driver, for example GTCO's Tablet Works 11.1? Specifically, I need information on how to configure the TabletWorks driver or the Digitizer Technology driver. I was told by support that the Wintab.exe driver (32 bit) is incompatible with 64 bit operating systems. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
The Wintab.exe driver works fine with Windows 10.
I have an old Intergraph (Kurta) 18x12 tablet that I have working with both V8i and CONNECT in Windows 10.
We also have Calcomp Digitizers that work just as well in Windows 10.
Just try it and see if it works for you.
Thanks Michael, but I must be doing something wrong. When I run Wintab.exe I am able to select the Calcomp 9100, and the other parameters.
But after I click OK, it doesn't keep the settings. If I run Wintab.exe again it will show the original settings. eg.
If I then try to do Digitizer Partition or Digitizer Setup it tells me that these functions require a digitizer.
I put the .exe and .dll files in Program Files (x86)\Bentley\Microstation V8i (SELECTSeries)\Microstation
That is where it should be, right?
It should be in the same directory as ustation.exe.
Turn off and then on your tablet.
Run Wintab as Administrator and change the settings. Click Ok.
Open it again and change the settings again if you need to. Click OK again.
Sometimes it might take a few attempts to register.
Are you using a dedicated COM port, or a USB adapter ?
If you're using a USB adapter, try using a different USB port.
