As I’ve indicated earlier, I am a massive fan of Apple’s Magic Mouse. While it does carry a heavy price tag, I thought it was completely worth it. But a sad draw-back was that under Windows (pecicially Boot Camp), the mouse only works as a standard 2 button mouse.
But thanks to a little hackery from Apple’s Bluetooth Update (located here) the Magic Mouses driver was extracted via WinRar resulting in a 32bit version and a 64bit version that you can install on any ordinary Windows PC that will enable all the scrolling ‘magic’ of the Magic Mouse.
Yes you can – but not directly. To install boot camp 3.0 on Windows 7 x64 follow these instructions.
- open command prompt in administrator mode
- type “net user administrator /active:yes” hit enter
- log out then log in as “administrator”
- then open cd and navigate to “bootcamp/drivers/apple/”
- run “bootcampx64”
- once done reboot, logback in and turn off administrator account by entering “net user administrator /active:no”
viola! boot camp 3.0 on x64!
This successfully installed on my late 2008 model uni-shell MacBook (the non-pro single cast aluminium one). Windows 7 managed to get most of the drivers by default, which was a refreshing change from XP and Vista (including the wireless drivers), but once BootCamp had installed the audio was fixed, and everything was great. I installed the GeForce 9M drivers from nvidia.com and I was in action.
