Software such as the popular Fractal Design Painter work well using the pressure sensitive stylus to allow sketches to be made digitally.

The Wacom Graphire CTE-630BT works better with Windows XP SP2 for built-in Bluetooth support which does not need additional drivers. Windows Vista has excellent Bluetooth support. Drivers for XP through Windows 8 are available and it does work with Windows 10.

If Windows asks for a PIN when pairing the unit, use “0000” as the tablet is not a keyboard. This is a bug in Windows.
