    It's just impossible for me to use my Apple Wireless Keyboard in Windows XP under Boot Camp.

    Everytime I try to pair the keyboard to the computer I get an error saying something like; "Windows wasn't able to configure the device. The device might not be working properly.". It does work however if I pair it without a key.

    Anyone else had this problem? How did you solve it? :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Ps. This is pretty much my first Mac, so it feels like I'm making loads of threads, sorry about that. I tried searching but found nothing.

    Did you install the Macintosh Utility Drivers CD? My Apple wireless KB works fine in WinXP via BootCamp.

    Thanks for your reply :). Yeah, I did install it, sorry for not mentioning that. The computer is a 17" C2D iMac, which I also forgot to mention.

    I've tried reinstalling Boot Camp (and Windows XP) like 3 times, same problem every time :(.

    Odd. I'm assuming you've tried turning off/on the keyboard? I can't really think of anything (though I'm no expert). I'm not sure what else to suggest..maybe start up with OSX first, see if the keyboard works, then restart to WinXP and try it from there.

    I know you said you tried reinstalling BootCamp/WinXP 3 times, have you tried reinstalling the Macintosh Utility Drivers CD?
