    Has anybody found the download location for BootCamp 6 drivers for Mac Pro?

    I was able to upgrade my MacBook Pro from 5.1. But downloading with BootCamp Assistant I only ended up with 5.1 drivers to install fresh.

    It looks like Windows 10 broke the screen HUDs for volume and screen brightness. It would be good to try extracting the keyboard drivers from BootCamp 6 to see whether that fixes it.

    Screen brightness HUDs are only for notebooks, not Mac Pro. We only get volume and eject which are working fine in Windows 10 with Boot Camp 5.1. Attached image.

    Actually, a repair install of 5.1 fixed the HUD for me.

    If you have an Apple Cinema Display 27' connected there are Screen brightness HUDs for Mac Pro.

    Not sure, it is related. But the Windows 10 Activation broke on my MacBook Pro after Boot Camp 6 installation. I am giving it time to recover as it did booting under VMware. But so far, no go.

    Might have to call in next week - sigh.

    It looks like Windows installed its nVidia driver after the Bootcamp install.

    I disconnected the Thunderbolt Cinema and all other peripherals and booted the MacBook Pro standalone. Then I let it sit. It appears to have activated itself. Touchy!

    Just an update. Windows 10 Activation is best ignored on the short term. It seems to fix itself off an on.
