    I recently purcahsed an Apple Magic Mouse to use with my MacBook Pro. I was able successfully pair and configure the Magic Mouse on the Mac OS X side, as well as use it on the Windows 7 partition through Parallels. However, when I try to use the Magic Mouse on the Windows side through Boot Camp, it doesn't work. When I select the option to add a new Bluetooth device in Windows, the Magic Mouse is not found, therefore, cannot be set up. I believe I have the most recent version of Boot Camp (3.1). The Windows OS has been completely updated as well.

    Has anyone run into this problem? If so, is there a solution for it?

    I apprecaite any help.

    Thanks!

    As far as I know the mouse worked fine, it even worked before installing the bootcamp drivers and worked better once i had installed them...

    Have you tried reinstalling bootcamp?

    I reinstalled the Mac OS (and Boot Camp along with it) several times now. Have you tried it on a 64-bit system? I'm wondering if it has to do with the 64-bit.

    I'm running on Windows 7 64-Bit no issues what so ever... I cant think why.. is there anything in device manager to indicate a problem?

    Try pairing the mouse in Mac and then restarting into bootcamp and see how it goes
