    I think you can either either ctrl+click or, using only the trackpad, press the trackpad button while touching the trackpad itself with TWO fingers simultaneously. In other words, it's like the two-finger click in OS X but you also have to press the trackpad button at the same time.

    The holding the button then touching trackpad with 2 fingers works for me.

    shift-control-click works in Parallels... try that.

    There is a bootcamp icon in the windows taskbar (if u installed the drivers from os x) brings up options to let you do this.
