I have been searching for this, but can't find it anywhere. How do I find what version of Boot Camp I am working with?

    In OS X, launch the BootCamp Assistant. On the "Boot Camp Assistant" menu, select "About Boot Camp Assistant" and there you go

    Take Care,

    In OS X (Leopard), I launched the boot camp assistant, but the only choices I get are to print the installation and setup guide or continue. There is no menu, so About Boot Camp Assistant cannot be selected.

    Any help available?

    Most people don't care what version of the Assistant they used, but want to know what version of drivers are getting installed into Windows.

    In Windows, the Apple drivers cover TimeServices and other items, and sometimes you can have new 2.0.x or the latest 2.2.

    Get Info on the application to find version
    /Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant

    What are you trying to say? That you don't know how to check for the version of Boot Camp Drivers installed? I mean, you were smart to catch the distinction between knowing the boot camp assistant version and knowing the version of the drivers installed. You're right, I want to know the driver version, not the assistant version. So how do you do that? You look for a driver in Bootcamp 2.2 that's not in @.1 or 2.0, right? Any suggestions? I don't know what version I have, so I don't know what to look for.

    Its a good question - how do you find out when you are in Windows.

    I never ever referred to or care about Boot Camp Assistant versions. They all stink. But there IS always Get Info on the Mac application where you can find the Mac version.

    If you can't find what you have installed in Windows, there is always the "Missing Manual" or "Windows for Dummies" right?

    Windows has control panels, programs, and you can always find the version. There are Apple Boot Camp control panel for one thing (part of Apple OSSwitcher).

    the easiest way to see your version of boot camp assistant and just about everything on your mac is to click on the apple symbol on the top left corner of your screen and click "About this Mac" then when a little window opens click "More Info" or something like that. when a big window opens with heaps of text in the left hand coloum scroll down and click on "Software" or "Applications" inside that software part. It should show a bunch of apps with versions and memory and all that stuff, in snow leopard it should show if it is 64 bit compatible as well.
