    I just installed Windows 7 and Boot Camp 3.0 drivers.

    I have a 2007 MBP (no multi-touch). Once everything is installed, I get NO TrackPad features. I can use the trackpad as an ordinary one, the cursor moves and all that, but I can't use two fingers for a right click or scroll using two fingers. So I'm stuck with only a left click at the moment.

    I've spent the better part of this afternoon trying to figure this out. I've looked everywhere and tried adjusting every setting. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled Windows 7 about three times.

    In previous versions of Boot Camp on earlier Windows versions, I thought the trackpad options were found in the Boot Camp preferences through Windows. Is this not the case now? How do I get these features going?

    I have the... I think it's the late 2006 model, no multi-touch, but if I recall correctly, to right click you put both fingers on the trackpad, then click the button. you should also be able to scroll with 2 fingers. If you can't, I would look into reinstalling the mouse drivers. Or, it might be easier if you just go into device manager and uninstall the mouse, and let windows find new drivers for it, it should find the Apple/bootcamp ones.

    I'm running WIndows 7 on my MBP and it "works", although I'd be hard pressed to call it a good Windows experience, there's no reason why you trackpad shouldn't work.

    I have the same exact issue on a MBA where I can move but not Tap to click nor scroll with the trackpad.
