Just installed Windows 8 in Bootcamp on a 15inch MacBook Pro with Retina screen.  The F1 & F2 keys to control screen brightness do not work.  The Apple Support suggests using the screen brightness in the Windows Charm bar to control the brightness but this is greyed out!!  When you hover the cursor over the control, it says Windows unable to control screen brightness!!

 

Any solutions??

 

Apart from rebooting into OSX changing the brightness and then reboting back into Windows 8....  thats tiresome!!
