I don't remember uninstalling any bootcamp drivers before 6. But I had to uninstall before 6.1Thanks for the very good explanation. I was guessing the newer, incompatible drivers might be ignored. Good to know that's the case.
I think I'll try installing ver 6 then to get the newer Boot Camp Control Panel. It is a pain using the 'nextonly' blessing when Windows wants to install updates and reboot itself (which happens too often). I'll modify my script to boot into Windows so the user can choose to use 'nextonly' or not use it, just as I do for booting into other Mac OS's. The advantage of using the script is still to avoid having to type in a password to use the Startup Disk preference pane to boot into Windows.
But then do I really want to uninstall the ver 5 drivers? Will anything Mac Pro specific be missed in version 6 drivers since it was never released for the Mac Pro? If it won't install over the top of ver 5 perhaps it will install specific ver 6 drivers individually?
