    Hi guys,
    I am running Windows XP SP2 with BootCamp 1.3 drivers according to the BootCamp update page it says you can do two finger right clicking. I have re-installed the drivers over and over again without any success on how to right click. Is it possible to right click with these drivers or do I have to install input-remappper?

    Secondly, is it just me or do the audio drivers suck? The startup music is crackly and playing a video in Windows is shocking.

    Two-finger right click works for me on my 2.33 MBP without any additional software (other than the Boot Camp drivers, of course). What model of computer do you have?

    Make sure you're pressing the mouse button when you have two fingers on the trackpad. You can't do the "tap" click in boot camp.

    Can you explain what you mean.

    I have tried tapping my two fingers like i do in OSX to right click it doesn't work.

    I also tried having one hand on the main button and the other hand doing the two finger tap and I can't get it to right click.

    What am I doing wrong?

    The first way you tried won't work.

    Try resting two fingers on the touchpad and then pressing the mouse button. It should work then.

    That is awesome! I look like a bit of a retard trying to right click though, I will have to get used to it!

    I noticed you also live in Melbourne, Are you at Uni or doing VCE?

    Heh, I had no idea that you could "tap right-click". Other peoples' problems can sometimes teach you things :)

    YAY! Fixed the sound! Uninstall the sound drivers from device manager. Insert bootcamp CD. right click->open->drivers->sigmatel->then there are two installs there click the second one with XP and wait for it to install then you will have nice crisp sound :)

    He might not have a mouse though.

    Now what if he's using an older 1 button mouse, how would he right click with that (really asking for me)?
