    Hi,
    I am using win7 through bootcamp, but i can't use the two fingers-right click on the track pad and also the fn key doesn't work.
    Does anyone here have any idea why i can't use them ?
    thnx

    Mine works fine. Are you sure you have the latest BootCamp drivers installed?

    Not at all.
    I tried to download the windows support software, when starting bootcamp, but after one minute trying to connect to something it says "download could not continue - The Windows support software is not available."

    Did you install the drivers from your install DVD for bootcamp?

    If so, you can go into the bootcamp assistant(lower right corner, looks like a little grey square) and play with the options for input to enable tap to click, secondary click etc which aren't enabled by default.

    Learn to read instructions, the instructions for bootcamp clearly state this.

    Most computer problems are caused by the one in front of the keyboard, be careful next time. Cheers!
