Stylus not working on Windows 10 Dell Venue 8 Pro

Hello

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 on my Dell Venue Pro 8. The stylus has stopped working and I cant seem to get the correct drivers on the page. Can somebody help?

RE: Stylus not working on Windows 10 Dell Venue 8 Pro

My stylus stopped working as well after the 10 upgrade. Wasn't recognized at all by the tablet.

Not sure why, but simply removing and re-inserting the stylus battery fixed it for me.

My stylus stopped working also.  Unfortunately, battery remove and reinsert did not work for me.

Same as the rest, no more stylus after Upgrading to Windows 10. Very frustrating.

Same here 😞  I mainly wanted my venue 8 pro for not taking which can be flaky.

Still not sure if anyone has got a solution. I notice that in the Device Manager there is no "HID Compliant Pen" listed. Does that have anything to do with it?

I can see a HID Compliant Pen listed in mine. The properties says it is Microsoft dated 2006-06-21 version 10.0.10240.16384.  When I try to update, it tells me this is the latest.  The stylus remains non-functional.  Perhaps someone can provide details of a working driver.
