    How can I get Magic Mouse to work in my bootcamp Windows 7? I found it on bluetooth and pressed connected and it wouldn't.

    It won't work, there are no Windows drivers for it.

    I hope that they come out with a driver soon. People would gobble up that mouse.

    it works ..
    but you need time.

    start win7 and choose new device (bluetooth), start magic mouse; it will appear in the window .. finish.

    it took me several times to do that until it was working.

    after every bad try open "bluetooth- pane" and remove the mouse if it is present and not working.

    be informed that no scrolling is possible ! (imac)

    all this with imac win7 64bit (boot camp)


    i will try to install mm on my mbp/win7 later and will inform u ...

    Look out for Apple's Windows 7 support. Chances are it will have drivers for all their products leading up to Boot Camp 3.x or 4.x drivers.

    Magic Mouse works through VMware but not bootcamp. At least we have one for now.

    I'm able to use my magic mouse just fine with Windows 7 64-bit setup via bootcamp. I got my 21.5" imac and installed Windows 7 a few days after it was released. The magic mouse worked fine with Windows 7 the first day minus scrolling. I didn't need to do anything special to get it to work, it was just detected after installing the drivers from the Snow Leopard disc. There wasn't a bluetooth icon in the system tray like there usually is, but after an automatic update a little less than a week ago, the bluetooth icon is now there and scrolling with the magic mouse works (only up and down scrolling at least).

    Scrolling didn't work for my mac pro 2008 with windows 7 64bit even after that procedure.

    edit: fixed it by installing bluetooth drivers off of bootcamp 3, the apple 64 bit updated drivers from the thread above, and then enabled incl scrolling after doing this:

    Glad it worked out for you, though i'm unsure if what you did in step 3 "enabled incl scrolling after doing this" can you explain a little more, did you need the IntelliPoint driver ?

    Most people don't buy mice (if they do it's cheap, and the Magic Mouse isn't cheap by any means), it won't get gobbled up. ;)

    It's not that great of a mouse either. Too much of a novelty.

    I installed the intellipoint 7 drivers for the MS sidewinder x8 mouse for win7. (I saw this step recommended somewhere) The I downloaded the apple Bluetooth driver as was linked. Prior to this all I did have to run the Bootcamp 3.0 windows 64 bluetooth exe to get bluetooth tray icon set properly in windows 7 on my mac pro. After that I right clicked my bluetooth icon and said add device, then I right clicked the device it found and hit properties, then services, then CHECKED the bit about using hardware drivers for this device. then it loaded the mouse and scrolling worked also. I did find that the mouse would however stop from time to time and I had to refresh device manager to get it working again. Not sure if this may be because of the BT adapter in the 2008 mac pro, or because I was alos using a wireless Logitech mouse with it's own proprietary BT dongle.

    bootcamp 2.2 driver update

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL967

    Windows 7 is not officially supported - anyone tried magic mouse with the new bootcamp drivers?

    Windows 7 does talk to apple keyboard recognizing the <Fn> key with bootcamp drivers. Contemplating getting a magic mouse.

    Bringing back this "real old" post. I just installed Win 7 pro on my 2011 MBP 2.2ghz i7. Couldn't get the magic mouse to work until I went to the bluetooth preferences and clicked "Add New Device". It was stuck on searching for about 3 minutes and then I just started to click the mouse until the green light came on. While I did that I realized the mouse was moving on my screen (w00t). I have scroll features, right / left click as well. So I am stoked!

    Strange because I done the same add device and while it was searching for the device I clicked on the magic mouse and its now working fine. However it has not yet found the mouse and still searching, therefore its too early to say if the settings will hold
