    Hi all,

    I'm having a strange issue getting my Apple Wireless Keyboard to run on my new HTPC under Windows 7 (64 bit). I can get Windows' bluetooth manager to detect the keyboard, and I can input the pairing code, following which Windows seems to install a bunch of drivers, but then I get no response from the keyboard at all.

    The thing I find strange is that the keyboard works when I punch in the code numbers, but never before or after.

    I also have a Magic Mouse which works perfectly.

    Once paired and installed, the keyboard is displayed in Windows' driver manager as a "Bluetooth Peripheral Device", so I'm wondering if the issue is that Windows isn't recognising the device as a keyboard.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks heaps, in advance.

    This is what worked for me with the Apple wireless keyboard, might give
    this short guide a shot if you're still having trouble.

    Thanks guys, but no luck with any of the tips in those links. It's very strange. I tested the keyboard on my iPad, and it worked perfectly there too, so it's not a hardware issue as far as I can tell.

    I had the same issue, just search or get the Driver from BootCamp, install it and your done :)
