Eric Torbenson Level 1 Level 1

I just installed Vista Enterprise x64 using Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro last night. After loading the drivers from the Leopard DVD, then installing the Vista x64 patch to the drivers, everything works. Everything, that is, except for my touchpad. It's still showing up as a HID-compliant generic mouse.

Has anybody gotten their touchpad to work under Vista? Am I missing a patch?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    I have a similar setup as you but I used Vista Ultimate 32 bit. However, I followed the same steps as you. My touchpad works fine.

    Maybe the touchpad isn't fully supported with Vista 64 bit Enterprise??

    It's not. Should've read more closely before posting that.

    Apple's device drivers don't include many of the "fun things" you can do in Mac OS. I have been able to do the following:
    - Scroll with 2 fingers
    - Right-click by navigating to where I want, placing a second finger down on the pad, then clicking the physical button.

    Everything else hasn't worked. We'll just have to wait for an updated driver...
