Apple today released a pair of software updates targeting users involved in remote administration of Snow Leopard Server and users of Apple's Boot Camp solution for Windows.

- Server Admin Tools 10.6.2 provides updates to several applications used for remote administration of Snow Leopard Server.
The Server Admin Tools update is recommended for remote administration of Snow Leopard Server. This update includes the latest releases of:

- iCal Server Utility
- Podcast Composer
- Server Admin
- Server Monitor
- Server Preferences
- System Image Utility
- Workgroup Manager
- Xgrid Admin
Full details on the update, which weighs in at 241.40 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6.2, are available in Apple's associated support document.

- Boot Camp Drivers Update 2.2 for Windows offers updated Windows drivers for users booting to that operating system using Apple's Boot Camp solution. The update addresses several issues related to the trackpad and audio-out port, as well as providing support for Apple's new multi-touch Magic Mouse and updated wireless keyboard.
This update addresses issues with the Apple trackpad and turns off the red digital audio port LED on laptop computers when it is not being used. It also includes support for the Apple Magic mouse and wireless keyboard. It is intended only for use with Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista running on a Mac computer using Boot Camp.
The update weighs in at 23.87 MB and requires Windows XP or Vista SP2 and a Mac running Boot Camp 2.1.

Boot Camp Update 2.2 not opening in Win 7x64

Has anyone tried this update in Win 7x64-bit? I can't seem to get the installer to open (have tried all compatibility settings, run as admin, etc). I know "officially" that the update is for Win XP and Vista, but figured it should work with Win 7. The update says nothing about it not working on 64-bit systems, either, but I know that could be the case as well.

Any ideas?

Update - just saw in Task Manager that the process starts up as Boot camp update *32 - then quits after 2 seconds - must be a 64-bit thing. Oh well, I will have to wait a bit longer for my magic mouse and trackpad support...

Blah. I was really hoping to have Windows 7 support, rather than just crappy magic mouse support. The fact that it won't even update for 64-bit is really frustrating.

audio-out fix? how about the audio-in fix? I can't use a headset in Windows without using something like Creative's X-Fi Notebook or USB.

2.2 was a dud. It did not install and all I have is 2.1. In any case, I'll leave it be.

is this only for leopard users who installed 2.1 & not snow leopard users who installed 3.0? There does appear to be some fixes in it which address problmes in 3.0. Bizarre... Perhaps there'll be a 3.1 release soon?

Yep. Definitely a dud. I tried it in both Win7 and XP (both currently running Boot Camp 2.1). No dice. It would have been nice to get the updated trackpad driver.

In Win7 (RC x64), the installer starts and immediately quits. No error message.

In XP (Pro SP3 32-bit), the installer runs and starts unpacking, but then it gets to "Gathering information" (or something like that) and stops. No disk activity and no CPU usage. It just stops completely.

WTH, Apple? What configuration is this for? :confused:

Agreed, this is very bizarre. Hopefully Apple is taking so long to release 3.1 because it will fully support 64-bit Windows 7.

very unprofessional in terms of clarity on their site as to what exactly it's for...
