    Great help with getting Magic Mouse to work with Windows 7 on Bootcamp system.

    Thanks a million.

    I had already gotten my magic mouse to work under Bootcamp/XP with the exception of horizontal scrolling (vertical scrolling works fine).

    The one feature I really need in the magic mouse is horizontal scrolling (particularly for MS Excel 2003). (It would be great if I could get the horizontal scrolling working in the trackpad too)

    In any event, I followed instructions in the post that advised to install the Microsoft Intellisense drivers for the SideWinder X8. I did this but still have no horizontal scrolling.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    I would like to add to the above post that I still have the "Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerater" active under "Bluetooth Radios" in my device manager. If I disable this, the magic mouse no longer responds. Do I need to replace this with something else?

    Al - thank you so much, it works perfectly. I think I read these steps before elsewhere, with the big exception of your caveat after #4. The requirement to click a couple of times is a bit odd, but it works. Thanks again for taking the time to post the solution!

    Works like a charm, and thanks to the Apple drivers from the link elsewhere in this thread, so does scrolling. Kudos for putting this together.

    I know this post is old but I just ran through this whole process and noticed the links to the fix were down now.

    Once you get through the ordeal that is installing windows to the new iMac i7 (late 2009), heres how you get the mouse working:

    1. install the drivers from the Mac OS X disk (all the windows drivers are on that disk). Just run the setup.exe on the disk.
    2. Reboot
    3. Install Windows Updates
    4. Reboot
    5. Run the "Apple Software Update" program that should be in your start menu and it will download Boot Camp 3.1 - this is the key to getting all the blue tooth/keyboard/mouse drivers updated.
    6. Reboot
    7. Now when you boot into windows, the mouse should work EXCEPT the middle scroll will not work (touch scrolling)
    8. Download the hacked driver - and run through its installation
    9. reboot
    10. Now when you log into windows, it will install the hacked driver and the scrolling should start working.

    If still problems, drop me a line on this thread. I just spent the last 4 hours configuring Windows 7 Ultimate on an iMac (got the black screen, did the NTFS delete of the default ATI driver in the windows directory, then did everything I mentioned above).

    Its been interesting so far so hopefully this help the next person who has to deal with all this.

    Great advice. I was struggling to connect the magic mouse in windows 7. I followed your advice and got the mouse working. A big Thanks.

    I'm a little confused - if the magic mouse isn't working at all in Windows, how are people even getting through the Boot Camp and Windows installation? Is it that the cursor moves onscreen, but the "touch" functions are busted?
  • theotherkiwi Level 1 (0 points)
    It works fine if you download the Windows driver pack, unrar the drivers files and run the exe for your 32 or 64 bit version of Windows.

    This works in bootcamp on a mac in VM or on a standard PC that natively boots Windows. I'm lovin' it in Win7!

    note: if you have touch of the palsy, you may spaz your way around the screen a little so bear this in mind; until you master potentially more subtle movements, and possibly adjust your sensitivity settings a bit, YMMV

    Okay so I could do with a little help if possible. I have the Magic Mouse working on my Windows 7 HP Pavilion DV6000. As per other posts, can use mouse including left and right click okay, but no scrolling. The problem is all the links to teh "hacked" drivers for windows 7 32bit do not work. Anyone know an alternative download location?
  • theotherkiwi Level 1 (0 points)
    Yep, that's because you haven't installed the drivers. Google AppleWirelessMouse64.exe or AppleWirelessMouse32.exe which have been extracted from the self-extracting exe called AppleBcUpdate.exe. run the 32-bit or 64-bit version for your O/S and away ya go!

    I found em on but they are all over the place. Don't expect any support from apple for these though.
  • MickRoss Level 1 (0 points)
    Thanks, tried that but still mouse can only be seen as HID-compiant mouse and will not allow me to update to the new apple drivers. Unless I am missing a step.
  • theotherkiwi Level 1 (0 points)
    OK, did you get an error message when you install? Does it appear under Devices and Printers as an Apple Wireless Mouse?
  • MickRoss Level 1 (0 points)
    The drivers installed correctly and showed version and success on completion. The mouse appears in device manager as HID - compliant mouse, using microsoft drivers mouclass.sys, mouhid.sys and pctCore.sys. When I try and change the drivers i browse to where the apple drivers are and it states that windows has determined the driver software for my device is up to date.
  • theotherkiwi Level 1 (0 points)
    You may need to uninstall the drivers that are loaded. My mouse appeared as a HID compliant device when I first paired it with bluetooth. Then loaded the drivers (running the exe) after which it appears as an Apple Wireless Mouse.

    No need to manually change the drivers, mine just worked once I had run the exe. Try downloading the driver exe files from a new source.
