    I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro, and I know that that it only officially support Windows 7, but I must run XP for old programs. I have installed XP, it runs fine, and I have drivers for most for the hardware BUT, the trackpad cannot right click. I am using the built in trackpad. I have tried, but I just don't have the drivers for it and I can't find any. Is there a working trackpad driver out there for XP? Thanks.

    Will the drivers for the 2008 MacBook pro work properly with my one?

    Probably yes. My first MBP is 2009 and i use drivers from him. I think in 2008 is leopard and boot camp is ver 2. (You cant see NTFS partition)

    If you have Windows 7 Professional edition it's possible to use Windows XP applications through something called Windows XP mode. You can read more about it from Ars and download it from Microsoft. It's essentially like running Windows XP in its own sandbox along side Windows 7.

    I have been using some of those drivers, but the trackpad (or multitouch ones) won't seem to work.
