If you have a Wacom et-0405-u tablet, also known as Graphire, you might be wondering how to install the driver on Windows 10. The Wacom et-0405-u is an old model that was discontinued in 2007, and the last official driver was released for Windows XP, Vista and 7. However, there is a way to make it work on Windows 10 with some tweaks. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install the Wacom et-0405-u driver on Windows 10.
Step 1: Download the Driver

Step 2: Modify the Driver
The next step is to modify the driver to make it compatible with Windows 10. To do this, you need to edit some files in the driver folder. You can use any text editor, such as Notepad or Notepad++. Here are the files you need to edit and what you need to change:
setup.ini: Open this file and look for the line that says [Model]. Under this line, you will see a list of tablet models and their corresponding codes. Add a new line at the end of the list and type ET-0405-U = Graphire. Save and close the file.
PenTablet.cpl: Open this file and look for the line that says [Strings]. Under this line, you will see a list of tablet names and their corresponding codes. Add a new line at the end of the list and type ET-0405-U = "Wacom Graphire". Save and close the file.

Step 3: Install the Driver
