    Tapping will be avaliable when you'll install the drivers.

    For now just use clicking.

    No, just make sure you are actually pushing hard enough on the trackpad to make it click. Don't just tap on it. It clicks easier if you press on it near the bottom edge.

    If that still doesn't work, you can access the windows update by opening it via the start menu.

    Most people are to mouse driven in their PC use but anybody who uses it more often wouldn't click though menus or on buttons. You hit the Windows key and typ "update" or "windows update" and hit enter.

    I've installed windows many times on my MBA and I assure you, if you are actually pushing down on the touchpad it will work.

    Once you are in windows and have installed the bootcamp drivers, click the start button and type Boot Camp, load up the assistant and there is a tab for keyboard and touchpad. Set it to tap to click.
