No extended input devices on windows tablet.

No extended input devices on windows tablet.
Ok. So here's the situation. I have a Samsung Ativ tab 7 (you draw directly on the screen) running on windows 8. I downloaded gimp and the pressure sensitivity wasn't working so I went to system preferences> input devices> configure extended input devices. Both Wacom pen and Wacom eraser WERE there. I put them to screen mode and pressure sensitivity worked perfectly fine. However I had to refresh my computer which deleted Gimp so I re downloaded it to find that the pressure sensitivity was not working once again. I did the EXACT same thing and it didn't work. I Eventually pressed the button which says 'reset input devices to default settings' hoping that might solve the problem. Instead, it deleted both the Wacom pen and eraser. Now the only device that shows up is the core pointer. How do I get the Wacom pen and eraser back?

I have tried reinstalling gimp multiple times, deleted all the files associated with gimp, and refreshed my entire computer. None of this worked. Does anyone know how I can get these two devices back?

P.S. pressure sensitivity works with other apps, its not my computer, it only doesn't work with Gimp.

RE: No extended input devices on windows tablet.
You might need to reinstall your Samsung tablet driver. Try that if you haven't already.

Then head on down to this post/thread read this post & scroll down. I'm currently looking through it so if I find anything else related to missing recognition, I'll update you

EDIT: Haven't found anything else in that thread, but browsing a related-inkscape issue, I found

"Try opening the program with using the tablet, not your mouse..." So that might be worth a try if your tablet works everywhere else.

LAST UPDATE UNTIL REPLY: I was helping another gimp user troubleshoot their tablet, here is what worked for them also:
