Tilt pen completely unresponsive except eraser button

HP Tilt Pen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased a new HP Tilt Pen (2MY21AA#ABL) for use with my HP Spectre x360 Convertible (2482F730-5327-4D9A-BB7B-891645B3E1B7) and am unable to use the former with the latter.  I charged the device, synced to bluetoo successfully and can even use the eraser button to open the programmed hotkey options.  However the pen tip and eraser are completely unresponsive on my touch screen, the side button elicits no response.

I have checked for drivers to update and there are none.  I have tried several different HP and Microsoft native programs and with the pen without any response.  I have searched online and found multiple sources that say that my specific model of HP Tilt Pen and HP Spectre x360 are compatible.  And yet... all evidence indicates I've wasted 60 bucks.

Can you help me figure out how to use my pen with my laptop?

    • Pen & Windows Ink: Choose which hand to write with, and enable or disable visual effects, cursor, and a setting to ignore touch input when using the pen.
