    I purchased a BT4.0/WifiAC card from the HK seller on eBay:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/252317542350?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    After installing them, they were detected fine on Mac OS (both Yosemite and El Capitan), the only thing is that in El Capitan Handoff/Continuity/Airdrop are not working despite trying 3 different methods (SIP, deleting bluetooth.plist, and logging out and in on iCloud for all devices). Yosemite worked fine though.

    But now when I boot into Boot Camp, both BT4.0 and Wifi drivers are not to be detected by anything.
    I tried installing Boot Camp 5.1621 or something latest (downloaded from El Capitan's Boot Camp Assistance tool), I even tried 6.0 drivers, they all said they were installed but they are not detected in Device Manager.

    Funny thing is Wifi seems to be working right now because of Driver Booster. But I really need the BT driver. I tried Driver Booster too but no luck. I tried so many different methods but not working.

    I have a 2010 Mac Pro 6 core 3.33ghz.

    The module seems to be genuine product but if the product is a bootleg, I don't know if this is the case why it's not working in Windows 10.

    Anyone who upgraded their BT4.0/WifiAC card and have a Boot Camp, it would be great if you can shed some light on this.

    Here is another thread about the same card/issue from two days ago:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/windows-10-drivers-for-broadcom-bcm943602cdp.1969072/

    I have the same card but haven't tried Windows yet. Same exact problem with it not working in 10.11 though. If I boot Yosemite it works. If I boot El Cap it doesn't. I even tried a 10.10.5 install from scratch, got handoff working great, then upgraded it to 10.11.4 and it stopped working.

    Really annoying.

    Sorry I have no idea about getting BT working in Win10. Did you try asking the seller of the card?

    In terms of compatibility, it does seem like it's El Capitan's problem, but I don't know how other people are doing with their El Capitan with different module than ours. If they work, then there must be something wrong with this seller's module.

    Seller gave me some links but it looks like he doesn't have a driver ready. The links he provided didn't work. This is annoying. Would other sellers' product work without any issues? Because if so, then I would need to get it from someone else if this is not a genuine Apple product.

    This is for the older BCM94360CD card but maybe the procedure outlined there will work for you?

    Thanks I somehow downloaded so many drivers from everywhere, and somehow my mouse and Magic Trackpad 2 were detected so I'm using them.

    But now the problem is with the Magic Trackpad 2. I can't use any functions such as 'tap to click', I can only do the physical click and right click by clicking on the bottom right.

    I downloaded all the latest Boot Camp drivers for Magic Trackpad 2 but still no luck. This is so frustrating. I was told that version 1 that he sold didn't have any issues and it was just simple plug and play (drivers detected/installed automatically), it just 'worked'.

    I think version 2 that he is selling right now is not a reliable one. I also had some issues my mouse disconnecting intermittently. It happens on and off.
