Can someone confirm whether or not the new Bootcamp Magicmouse drivers for Windows enable all the finger swiping features of the mouse? If not, exactly what is enabled?

Thanks in advance

    Not working for me.

    Connects OK, basic functions OK, two finger swiping not OK, scrolling laggy.

    For those of you who have the Magic Mouse working properly (minus finger swipes), are you using Win7 32 or 64bit? I have Win7 64bit, and can get the mouse working only after uninstall/reinstalling it in the device manager. I lose all functionality after the computer sleeps or is rebooted though.

    TStam,
    Can you look in Device Manager and find the Magic Mouse listed under the "Mice and other pointing devices" section and let me know if it's listed as HID-Compliant Mouse and the date of the driver. I have a date 6/21/2006. I can look at the list of drivers if I choose to update them but the only one listed under Apple is the Mighty Mouse. Thanks!!!

    I have the same issue. My MM works for a while until the comp goes into sleep or gets restarted.

    Did you already install windows 7, and then just apply the Bootcamp 3.1 update?

    Have you unchecked the box in Device Manager/Bluetooth/Apple Bluetooth/Properties/Power Management, where it says "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" ?

    If you leave it checked (default) Bluetooth will turn off after a few minutes.

    Re-reading your post I see yours doesn't work after a restart so may not be this problem. For some reason my bluetooth mighty mouse always needs a single left click after a restart, then it is instantly fine. If you try and move the mouse before clicking it won't move and looks like its not connected.

    This works! Thanks... although the tracking is not 100% reliable. It sleeps for a few secs if left idle for too long.

    That was it! I just need to click the button and the mouse comes alive after sleep and reboot. Thanks!!!

    Is it possible to configure the mouse for it now, with bootcamp 3.1?
