Updating to Boot Camp 1.1.2 beta
If you previously installed Boot Camp beta, you can easily update to Boot Camp 1.1.2 beta. You don't need to partition your hard drive again (unless you want to change its size) or reinstall your Macintosh and Windows software or documents, but it's very important to update the Boot Camp Assistant software, create a new Macintosh Drivers for Windows CD and install the updated software it contains on Windows XP. Complete instructions are provided in the Installation and Setup Guide included with the Boot Camp 1.1.2 beta software.
I thought that information was always there so took it for granted that was just generic information.
I haven't downloaded yet, but I hope it fixes the scrolling for my Mighty Mouse in XP.
"Reduced dialogs during Windows driver installation"
I don't/can't use BootCamp, but that is something Microsoft should have tried ages ago.
Weren't a lot of those features already in Boot Camp?
If those features were already include, Apple might have just improved their stability.
Yay! My Mighty Mouse scrolls again thanks to this update.
The feature list has been the same for all updates to Boot Camp. I assume they've just included slightly improved or newer drivers. Er, well, duh, what else would it include I guess. I wish knew what the actual changes were too.
I wish you read the full thread ... see my post for the full changes.
does right clikcing with the trackpad work now? and two finger scrolling? that's all i am interested in.
many people reported problems with their new C2D MBP not working with the old bootcamp (1.1.1). Has anyone tried using bootcamp 1.1.2 with their new MBPs?
I did read the whole thread but your post got lost in between the other posts listing the changes as quoted from Apple's site so I missed it.
all i need is bluetooth support.....
For which Mac? It works on my iMac and Mac mini.
bluetooth is already supported by bootcamp. I've used my bluetooth mouse with windows xp before and it worked fine.
Does the wireless work with the c2d mbp with this version? Can someone check please.
Do you have to burn another driver cd?
Meh. I don't have any blank CDs right now. I'll hunt around for one to upgrade, but it doesn't look like the update is that special.
i'm using a $20 usb bluetooth adapter and it works perfect in both osX and winXP mainy used for my cell phone and headset but no real problems at all. Not too keen on the appl ebluetooth adapters.
I wish they could figure out a way to make bootcamp recognise more than 2gb of ram tho' !!
No you do not have to burn another driver cd.
Open Bootcamp and click on Utility in the menu bar, choose "Save MacIntosh Drivers to Folder", then copy that folder to a flash stick and use that in your XP.
2 finger scroll, 2 finger right click in Windows is a good update IMHO.
