    I'm helping my sister to install xp via bootcamp. Everything works except the right click(2 fingers) and keyboard light. I remember when I installed Xp on my MacBook; there was bootcamp assistant or setting in xp but I dun see it in the MacBook pro. As for the keyboard light, I tried to turn off the room light but it's still not working.

    I have been searching online for the whole day. Please help.

    You need to insert the mac os x disc into the computer to install all the drivers once windows is installed, buddy. Did you not read the instructions?

    I did insert the disk for the drivers.

    Multitouch trackpad and backlit keyboard do not work under bootcamp.

    You should try CTRL-click for right-click. I believe this is how it is done.

    Good luck.

    They do work (with the exception of the gestures) and the backlight works too but not as good as it does in OS X. Which model MacBook Pro are we looking at?

    EDIT: Look in Control Panel and click on the Boot Camp control panel. From there, there should be multiple tabs. go through each one until you find something to do with the keyboard and make changes.

    [Problem Solved] Just in case if anyone search and need help on this subject.

    I ended up putting the disk in and run repair rather than let it auto install all the drivers. I think you will need to right click the disk and look inside. There's a folder call "bootcamp" and then click Run. Choose repair.
