    I tried to follow steps given by Kermode, however i'm not sure which folder (BootCamp????ToBootCamp????) to choose when using UPDATE32~ because he only indicated for 64bit OS

    and when i tried to use below folders it still did not enable scroll function.

     

    BootCamp3279aToBootCamp3272

    BootCamp3279ToBootCamp3271

     

    I also tried using software provided by user trackpadcontrol

    found on http://www.trackpadmagic.com it also did not enable touch scroll for my mouse

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

     

    I'm using a Dell Latitude E5420,

    Windows XP Professional 2002 SP3

    Intel Core i5-250M 2.50GHz

    I have honestly tried everything and nothing works at all... I have a macbook from I believe 2009 or so, the model number is A1181 and I have about one million issues. I run Windows 7 through bootcamp and some examples of issues are magic mouse not working at all, i-sight is extremly laggy, trackpad on normal laptop and not a mouse ***** I honestly have no idea what to do. My dad has tried to work with me on it but we are both windows people and have no clue how to do anything with macs or apple software/hardware. Please help me.

    Computer- Windows 7 32 bit Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz

    2.GB RAM Macbook A1181

    I'm still trying to get my Magic Mouse to be recognized by Win7. I can get to the point of installing BlueTooth and adding a device but I can't right click on the Magic Mouse icon when it is found. YES, I have a second mouse pluged in and my right click does work in other areas of Windows. So since I can't right click I can't set the rest of the properties that are needed. When I say cancel and go back to trying to add a device the Magic Mouse no longer shows up. Back to square one.

     

    Can any one suggest another avenue to get this working for me. Next step will be to ditch the Magic Mouse and get a decent 3 button I don't know if Blue Tooth will work with that either.

    Solution to disable horizontal scrolling on Magic Mouse in Windows 7

    I use MagicMouse on iMac with Windows 7 running (installed through BootCamp). Got sick of annoying horizontal scrolling. The solution described above has helped me to disable it. Here is what I've done in steps:
    1) go to http://www.autohotkey.com/ and download an app (a script editor).
    2) Install and run the program - please note that it will not open as it runs in the background
    3) Rightclick on the desktop -> choose "New" -> "AutoHotkey Script" (a new script file will be created on the desktop) -> name it as you wish (e.g. "Mouse_HScroll")
    4) Rightclick on the file you've just created and choose "Edit Script" from the menu.
    5) Add these three lines below existing text in the file:
    WheelLeft::return
    WheelRight::return
    #MaxHotkeysPerInterval 5000
    6) Save file
    7) Run "Convert .ahk to .exe" program from the package installed earlier and browse the file you've just created, hit ">Convert<" -> .exe file should be created. Run this file -> the scrolling should be disabled now.
    7) You may wish to move this file to Start/"Autorun" folder, so it would be launched automatically each time you reboot your Mac/PC.

    Hope this helps! Good Luck

    I had a lot of trouble getting the Magic Mouse to work on a HP dm4-3055dx. I worked on it for a few hours, followed the directions in the original post and tried a few other things, including downloading the latest bluetooth drivers from HP. Thing that worked like a charm was the site mentioned a few posts back: http://www.trackpadmagic.com/magic-mouse/home I know I sound like a sales person for them but I'm not. It's free, anyway.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks much for the recommendation of AutoHotKey. I HATE the mouse scroll in certain applications, and was glad to find a way to shut it off, yet have it work in other apps. Hope somebody else can use my code below.

    Hi everybody! I installed this driver on Win7 64 and everything runs fine.

    Check it out:

    http://appzdev.com/mac-iphone-blog/2012/04/get-apples-multi-touch-magic-mouse-fu nctions-to-work-on-windows/

    Can be an alternative to those experimenting problems with trackpadmagic.
