For some reason, when I run the Bootcamp assistant I do not get the option to download Windows support software.

I had an old version of Bootcamp which I used but it hasn't given me everything; for example the keyword function keys (volume up/down etc) are not working.

This is on a Macbook Air 2010 13" ultimate, Mac OS X 10.6.6 (haven't updated to .6.7)

Any suggestions? Any manual option for downloading?

I don't think bootcamp offers the option to download. It offers the option to burn a disc. If you don't have a SuperDrive attached then it can't burn a disc.

Also, on new machines the install DVD normally includes the bootcamp drivers. I have not tried it but I'd see if the install USB is recognized by Windows and includes the drivers for the MacBook Air for Windows 7.
