If you were previously using the standalone installer/updater (before v0.6), switch to the new method for installing OpenTabletDriver below.


If you are upgrading from an older version of OpenTabletDriver, it is important that you do not install it on top of the old version and instead clean up the old directory. Alternatively you can install it to a new directory.

  1. Download the latest release. (
  2. Extract the downloaded file into a folder of its own. For example:


    Replace <username> with your username.

  3. Run OpenTabletDriver.UX.Wpf.exe in the extracted directory.

    You can create a shortcut to this file, just make sure that the working directory points to the extracted directory.

Installation of WinUSB

Some tablets require Zadig’s WinUSB installed on a device interface to interact with the tablet correctly. To figure out if your tablet requires WinUSB, carefully check the notes on the supported list of tablets here.
