    Is there a way to do this? I found out that my flash drive is broken and I can't make it to the store until tomorrow. Would burning the files to a DVD work?

    From within Windows go to apple downloads. search for bootcamp drivers, download and install.

    If it is a dmg file you can download a MacDrive trail to access the dmg.

    I don't know why that didn't occur to me. Thank you!

    Yeah, sometimes the answer is more simple than we think, but, as I said before, if it is a dmg file you most likely need a 3rd party software to open it, MacDrive has a trail, just install it and remove later on.

    The support software for Boot Camp 5 comes in .zip format and is available directly from here:

    If you got to Apple's main support site, they also have similar links for Boot Camp 4 software.
