    Hi all

    I have recently purchased a MacBook (My first MAC) and installed Boot Camp and XP Pro and all was working fine.

    I then read about Boot Camp 1.1 with XP support for iSight, right click + delete and decided to upgrade. After downloading and installing Boot Camp 1.1, when I try to run it, I get a message saying: " The application Boot Camp quit unexpectedly" :confused:

    I tried rebooting reinstalling etc... but still, Boot Camp Assistant refuses to open. :(

    If anyone could suggest how to solve this problem, it would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Okay, we're going to have to start by running down the questions that aren't meant to be patronizing. ;) So sorry in advance. Explain how you installed it. Sometimes the Mac process for installing apps is a little weird.

    Hi mkrishnan,

    And thanks for taking a look.

    Installation was similar to the original installation of Boot Camp.

    The only difference was at the end where it said “update” instead of “install”. A message popped up to say that the update was successful. :confused:

    I hope this can be solved as I would really like to take advantage of the new features.

    Many thanks again.

    have you repaired permissions.

    Go into utlities, disk utility, click on HD, click repair permissions. Reboot and try again?

    As cartman would say 'goddamnit' :)


    This is a longshot but often works for programs after an update :)


    Is there a plist for bootcamp (a preference)

    Use spotlight to search for bootcamp

    view all results and in the docs catagory there maybe a file called

    apple.bootcamp.plist or some such. Basically lookfor bootcamp and the .plist

    If it appears drag it to the trash and empty. Next time you start bootcamp it will recreate a new preference and hopefully solve the problem.

    Other than that i'm out of ideas i'm afraid.

    Hi again MacRumorUser,

    Sorry it took so long to reply.

    I did try your solution but still no success.

    I have now returned the MacBook, I loved it very much but the damn thing decided to switch itself off when it felt like it for no reason what so ever and it happened more and more often so I decided to take it back and upgraded to a MBP.

    Thanks again for all your help guys.

    In case someone else finds this thread the easiest way to solve the OP problem would have been:

    1. Right-click on Boot Camp Assistant in /Applications/Utilities and select Show Package Contents and then navigated to Contents/Resources/DiskImage.dmg
    2. Mount DiskImage.dmg and copy the 'Macintosh Drivers for Windows XP.exe' to the Desktop/Flash Drive/CD-R/etc.
    3. Run the .exe in Windows.
