    I don't know about 64 but I am using the 32bit version and the normal two finger-click still works. Hold two fingers on the trackpad and click the button.

    when I try that it acts as if it is a single click - maybe a setting I need to change? (I'm also using 32bit)

    Go to the Start Menu-Control Panel and choose "Bootcamp". Click the Trackpad tab and make sure the "Two Fingers" Secondary Click option is checked, that should fix it.

    Yep, I've tried it both ways and it doesn't work. Maybe it's just user error. :(

    This problem has existed for me even using XP in bootcamp. Now i have Win7 installed and its the same thing. Use 3 fingers. For some reason thats the answer. It probably will be fixed via software update in the future. I have also notices that it won't respond to a 3 finger tap, a physical click is required..

    Hope that helps

    I've noticed that on most Apple laptops I have to either spread out my fingers a little bit or use three fingers for it to correctly register a secondary click.

    Wow, that's weird. I have a MBA and I have no issues with 2 finger click on the trackpad in Windows Vista or Windows 7. I never had to use 3 fingers. The two finger tap works as well.

    I'm using a MBA and two fingers w/ the click works for right click. Maybe its a problem with the drivers for glass trackpads? (assuming the OP is using the unibody Macbook)

    i did forget to mention im on a 2.53 MBP with the glass trackpad, so you're right it could be the new trackpad creating a problem
