    Lenovo w520 running win7 x64






    AppleWirelessMouse64.exe doesn't seem to work for me. I installed it but under bluetooth radios, it still shows microsoft bluetooth enumerator and thinkpad bluetooth 3.0. I can't find a way out of that - manually pointing to AppleWirelessMouse64.exe extracted file doesn't work neither does choosing appple as a manfacturer as it isn't even listed



    Any ideas?

    Hi Sam,


    it's not a big deal. Just download 7-Zip ( and install it. Then get the latest BootCamp_3.3, (mouse) right-click, unpack the file with 7-Zip to "BootCamp_3.3" (7-Zip offers you this option in the menu!). Well, now you should have a folder with this name.


    Open folder "BootCamp_3.3".

    Open subfolder ".rsrc".

    Open subfolder "0".

    Open subfolder "MSP_RESOURCE".


    Then right-click the file "UPDATE64" (presumed you use a 64-bit-system on your pc). Extract file "UPDATE64" with 7-Zip to folder "UPDATE64~". Again: 7-Zip offers you this option! You don't have to create this folder.


    Open folder "UPDATE64~".

    Open folder "BootCamp3303ToBootCamp3302".

    Search for file "Binary.AppleWirelessMouse_Bin".

    Right-click, unpack with 7-Zip to folder "Binary".

    Open folder "Binary", go to file "DPInst".


    Double click, install. That's the driver for Wireless Mouse.


    Ready? Then delete the folder "Binary" and go to file (still in folder "BootCamp3303ToBootCamp3302"!) "Binary.MultiTP_Bin". Right click, unpack it to folder "Binary". Open folder "Binary", go to file "DPInst" (yes, it's the same name!).


    Double click, install. It's the driver for Multitouch Mouse and Multitouch.


    Provided you want to use an Apple Keyboard - the driver is more or less hidden in the file "Binary.AppleKeyboard_Bin". ;-)


    Good luck!

    Thx - just did all of that and followed the steps to the Tee


    However, now my mouse is having a problem pairing? Before it used to pair but now it doesn't. Is there a manual way to pair the mouse? Windows 7 should be able to recognize and use the code 0000 but doesn't work


    Any ideas?

    Hmmm ... Well, go to the bluetooth-icon in the right corner below (it should be there, otherwise go to "devices and printers" in the system control; hope, that's the english equivalent, i use the german version. Right-click bluethooth-device, choose bluetooth-settings, mark box "show bluethooth-symbol ...", click OK). Back to the right corner: Click bluethooth-symbol, choose "add device", a window jumps up. switch on your mouse, it should appear in this window. Right-click the mouse-symbol, choose "properties" (or similar), mark box "driver for keyboard, mouse etc.". Click "apply" (the very right button). Wait, the driver should finally be installed, click OK. You have to restart your computer - now magic mouse should automatically be paired. Let me know ... ;-)

    The driver for my magic mouse was picked up by windows 7 64bit; installed by itself

    I'm still having problems with the multitouch feature - although the mouse mouvements are working and bluetooth pairing is fine. I followed these steps to the letter and the drivers are currently





    (by the way - it still says Driver Provider: Microsoft" in the menu overview).

    Do you know what I could possible be doing wrong here?

    Currently having the same problem as kthelgason. I'm using Windows 7 x64 on a PC.


    I can get the bluetooth to sync up, and the mouse runs on windows drivers (default). But it wont accept the apple drivers (Apple Magic Mouse & Multi Touch drivers). I've tried bootcamp (only for the magic mouse drivers) 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 already with no different results. Device manager recognizes the mouse as an apple mighty mouse. I've tried searching for them manually and install them, but that wont work either.


    Current drivers listed are:




    Also it seems the new drivers wont appear under C:\Windows\System32\drivers, but I don't know if that matters at all here.



    When I try to install the apple drivers (through: hardware then upgrade driver) I get this message


    "Windows could not find driver software for your device.
    If you know the manufacturer of your device..."


    Any ideas?

    Is there any way to get battery health/metering for the mighty mouse in Windows 7 (bootcamp).

    Me too. I'm trying to figure out my mouse problem. Since magic mouse wont even move on the Windows 7 Side of my mac. How do you expect me to bluetooh sync it when it won't recognize any clicks? I have no range of motion on windows. Can anyone shed light on this?

    This might help. Boot to OSX and disconnect your bluetooth magic mouse. Now boot into windows and pair your magic mouse. Hopefully your mouse will now work. If it is successful boot into OSX and pair your magic mouse. It should work in both OSX and Windows now.


    This worked for me on the magic track pad.

    Thanks for the tip, didn't work for me (I can connect no problem; no scrolling)russian error.jpgrussian error2.jpg.

    Luckily your link is one of the few that is still active.  I downloaded the 32 bit version and tried to run it on my Win 7 32 bit machine.  The installer starts and gets 90% done then backs out with with the error posted above (which of course I cannot diagnose since it is in Russian)...any suggestions??


    Thanks!  Hope we get this scroll thing going.

    Here are some good news.


    From our experience with the Magic Trackpad on Windows, we have developed a free Magic Mouse Driver Installer as well as the free Magic Mouse Utilities which includes a Battery gauge and support for Natural Scrolling.

    Have fun!

    That app and driver package is a real gem! Big thanks!


    Had problems with my Magic Mouse in Boot Camp for ages, and that driver fixed it, plus getting natural scrolling is just a very nice bonus. Once again, big thanks!
