    Hello, I have been using it for almost a year. I tried to install a bluetooth mouse and followed some procedures posted on the net. It seems that Bootcamp does not include bluetooth driver for Win 7. Am I right?

    I have been using Bluetooth mice in Windows 7 and use them now in Windows 10. Check in device manager if you see Bluetooth support. Then couple the mouse according to the mouse manufacturer description and use it. I did use a Logitech and now use a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse. MBP 7.1 mid 2010, W10.

    Bluetooth is supported in Bootcamp, so you may not have the proper drivers installed. It may be as simple as running a repair install of the existing Bootcamp drivers.

    I was succesfully using a bluetooth keyboard, mouse, trackpad and speaker with Windows 7 on my late 2013 15-inch rMPB (and I continue to use them under windows 10). I would suggest re-installing bootcamp drivers.

    Thanks all. How to re-install bootcamp drivers? I think a new version of Bootcamp just came out mainly to support Windows 10.

    You might be able to upgrade your existing boot camp drivers to Bootcamp 6 by running the Apple Update program in Windows. If the update does not show up you can also use the Bootcamp Assistant in OS X to create a USB drive with the drivers. Then reboot into your windows partition and run the Bootcamp setup files on the USB drive. See the following Apple support document for more info:
