In fact it can be a hindrance, due to the memory footprint increasing.

My point here is, if the 32bit version of Sigil works with the Wacom drivers you have installed then stay with that.
I used to think the same way you did, until I tested it. Sigil x64 is consistently 10% faster than Sigil x86.

If that doesn't work, then I'm really out of ideas. Either way, it's a Wacom issue because if this does work, then someone at Wacom is dumb enough to assume that an application's installation directory is any indication of its target architecture.

Sniff...didn't work...even going into regedit and deleting the key before reinstall. But thanks so much for helping us track down the source.

Related question...is there a way to turn a service off and on without restarting? Only way I know to do it is to go into msconfig, and it doesn't take effect w/o restarting.

What I can't figure is why it isn't more common. Are Wacom boards really that rare among ebook people? I'd think with covers and such it would be coming up all the time. I wonder if it's just the intuos 4 drivers....I know someone with a bamboo who's using Sigil...I'll ask if she's having a problem.

and while the x86 version runs on this machine, it runs very slowly unless I turn off the Wacom.

I'm going to get in touch with Wacom and let them know the problem I'm having. Thanks again!!!!

Got to "Start" and type there "services.msc" and click enter. Now you can edit the start behavior for every service or turn it on/off.
An other possibility is to use the task manager. There is a tab "services". There you can turn services on/off with a right click.

Thank you!!!!!! Much easier (and faster.) Now I really don't care if Wacom fixes this or not...

but I'm still going to write them. It's something they s/b aware of.

If you find that you are turning a service on/off frequently then you can create a bat file on your desktop with the commands:
Code:
net start "service name"
pause
and surprise, surprise
Code:
net stop "service name"
pause
You can get the service name from the services tab of task manager or services.msc
Include the quotes if the name has spaces, e.g. Wacom Tablet Service

For anyone not sure how to create a bat file just create a text file and then rename it.
e.g create wacomstop.txt and rename to wacomstop.bat

This has been a pretty interesting thread. I'm on WinXP and I've got a wacom tablet - but I have not used it for at least a year. Recent projects (and the possibility of upgrading to Win7) had me thinking I should re-connect the tablet.

By all means keep us apprised of anything you learn from Wacom.

JayCeeEll...thanks! That'll be useful.

Sabardeyn...I shall. So far, nada, but if they give me any more info, I'll let you know.
