Apple releases Boot Camp Drivers Update 2.2 for Windows

The New Mac mini Apple has released Boot Camp Drivers Update 2.2 for Window which addresses issues with the Apple trackpad and turns off the red digital audio port LED on laptop computers when it is not being used.

It also includes support for the Apple Magic mouse and wireless keyboard. It is intended only for use with Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista running on a Mac computer using Boot Camp.

• Boot Camp 2.1 must be installed prior to running this update
• For Windows Vista, Windows Vista Service Pack 2 must be installed before running this update.

  1. That’s odd. Windows 7 was intentionally made to be the same as Windows Vista as far as hardware driver support goes. I wonder why it would not be supported in this update.

  2. Thats kinda lame… Apple promised official Win 7 support by the end of the year, so I would have thought it would be in this release. They only have 4-5 weeks to release yet another version of Bootcamp…. I guess they just wanted to get these features out the door?

  3. I have Win 7 running on the current boocamp. Haven’t had any problems. I agree with UltraVisitor that it is strange the software designed for Vista doesn’t always work on Win 7. Just a couple nights ago I tried to install some MIDI software that was cleared for Vista onto Win 7 and the installer refused to do it.

  4. @Spark – two things to try if you didn’t already:

    1: Run the installer as an administrator (right click on it and select that from the dropdown menu if it’s available)
    2: Set its compatibility to Vista (right click, click properties, compatibility)

    In my experience, nothing stops Win 7 from installing Vista-compatible software except version checks and needing to run installers as admin.

    I know it’s blasphemy to offer help with Windows on MDN (instead of just going “LOL windows sucks”) but that’s not how I roll.
