None of those nice trackpad settings on mine either. Maybe it's just on newer Macbooks. I use a mouse about 90% of the time now anyway, so it doesn't really bother me.

Same here on vista and win7. If i actually used the trackpad it would bluescreen after a while, if i used a usb mouse it was fine, then start using the trackpad for a few minutes and it would BSOD again relating to the trackpad dll.

They still can't get the tap to click working correctly. I mean, it's only been 10 months since they released the new model, maybe a few more until their product works as intended?

At least the scrolling has slowed down a little. Why can't they just add a setting in the boot camp manager to change the speed of the scroll.

Wow I've found that the trackpad is so much better to use after this update under 64 bit Vista. It still can be a little quirky but it's much better to use now.

Ok, I'm not able to install this....maybe it's not meant to be.

I have a MacBook CD 2.0GHz running Windows 7 32-bit under BootCamp. Is this JUST for XP and Vista or is it for newer MacBooks? When I get "This update is not intended for this computer and will not be installed."

The new trackpad update finally makes the trackpad usable in Windows and I don't have to use mouse all the time when I'm working with Windows. The trackpad is still quite sensitive, but much better now. I'm happy (although I'm angry that it took 10 months to correct the problem). The older trackpad driver also conflicted with Flash in every browser (whenever I scrolled over flash area, the flash began to have graphic issues and the browser crashed). That also seems fixed now.

I was able to install the update to Windows 7 manually (Apple's automatic update software didn't install it correctly). After the file has been downloaded from Apple's site, change the file settings to 'Run in Vista mode' or something like that. It helped and the installer finished correctly.

Someone was missing that Bootcamp icon in Windows 7. I had a similar problem. The drivers which were on Leopard disc worked correctly, but the updated drivers (from Apple's site) didn't work. So, I didn't install the updated drivers. In my case, the updated drivers also messed up some keyboard function buttons (volume etc).

Well, I wasn't able to get the driver to install via the software update for windows, but it did install via burning the 10A432 Bootcamp Drivers to a CD and installing from that.

Unexpected but appreciated. I'm happy to see that Apple is at least trying to fix the trackpad issues for Windows.

But my Blackbook trackpad still works like a charm. Why did we need this big glass thing again?

I cannot complete the installation procedure on my 13in umbp as the installer quits with the typical wasn´t meant for this computer error.
I am running Win7 RC1 and I have exhausted all compatibility options.
How can I reduce the crazy sensitivity of my touchpad?

thanks!
