you had to create FAT volume. Most use a USB card.
Your Apple Windows Support Software are drivers, not applications (there are .msi and setup.exe)
Boot Camp 4.0, OS X Lion: Frequently asked question
create a Windows support software (drivers) CD or USB storage media
Advanced Network: Proxy Settings, I uncheck "Auto Proxy detection" and make sure you have the interface you use selected and none others.
"Go into System Preferences - Network - Advanced - Proxies Uncheck "Auto Proxy Discovery", click OK, Apply"
After Unchecking "Auto Proxy Discovery" I also had to Uncheck "Use Passive FTP Mode (PASV)" and then Restart Boot Camp Assistant.
odiggy's comment and tried restarting Boot Camp Assistant. That did the trick, even though the Auto Proxy Discovery checkbox ended up the same as it started. Windows support software is now downloading... if you're downloading to an external drive make sure there's a least 1 GB of free space because the WindowsSupport folder is around 700 MB and presumably will grow with time.

But is the DVD I have not the application? It's the one that came with the laptop. And I cannot download Windows support software, it says it's not available. I went to the Proxy Settings but mine was already unchecked.
Is the Windows support software not the same as the DVD I got?

Okay, 10.6 DVD does have Windows support.
But it would be on the OS X Install DVD. When you are in Windows it will have a partition viewable only in Windows.
There will be BOOTCAMP.msi and BOOTCAMP64.msi and at the top level there may be "Apple Setup.exe"
There would be folders with various drivers.
In a few cases OS X Install DVD lacked Windows side. But it is not applications.
