Actually, Sketchbook Pro (and Express for that matter) does not work fine if you use a Wacom tablet or at least an Intuos 3 or 4. Either the tablet's driver, Sketchbook or something on Lion's side leads to jittering and stuttering when drawing, which practically makes it unusable. It starts fine, it works fine if you use a mouse to draw, but it does not in conjunction with a tablet. (At least on two of my three Macs I tested it with.)

Can't speak to the installer issue above, but SketchBook Pro 2011 is working fine for me with a Wacom Intuous (original) tablet and the Wacom Driver v. 6.1.5-2

Have not yet checked to see if Wacom has released new drivers

I can't install either. There is a new service pack available as of early July. Maybe that works.

Sketchbook Pro 2010 and 2011 both showed problems during the Autodeskinstaller. I did a clean install and neither version of the app would work.

A previous installation of Lion (upgrade, not clean install) had functional Sketchbook Pro software, but did not attempt a re install. I suspect whatever worked for SBP in Snow Leopard carried over what is now missing in a Lion clean install.

I have problem with sketchbook pro. When I use mouse everything is ok, but when i try to use tablet (Slimline Sketch Tablet) i start to getting bad. I draw, but lines are made in one small side of canvas, also tools doesn't work good.
If there anyone now what to do, how to fix it?? I tried with preferences but there is nothing I can do :(

Are there any plans to make Sketchbook Express/Pro fully lion compatible? It would be nice to work on my art in full screen specifically…. auto save would be nice also. I don't think about saving while working .. but thats not as critical as getting all the clutter out of the way and just looking at a blank canvas (and the SB tools)
