Can someone confirm whether or not the new Bootcamp Magicmouse drivers for Windows enable all the finger swiping features of the mouse? If not, exactly what is enabled?

Thanks in advance

    Not working for me.

    Connects OK, basic functions OK, two finger swiping not OK, scrolling laggy.

    I've been using it for a while now. What works is clicking, vertical scroll (a little flaky), and oddly finger swipe zooming in Windows photo apps. What is not working is the side to side swiping between web pages in IE or Firefox.

    Does anyone have side to side swiping working in native Windows, not a VM?

    BTW I tried switching the bluetooth drivers from apple bluetooth to apple broadcom on my mac pro. Both work the same as above. Bootcamp does not use the broadcom one so I am just using the apple one.

    For those of you who have the Magic Mouse working properly (minus finger swipes), are you using Win7 32 or 64bit? I have Win7 64bit, and can get the mouse working only after uninstall/reinstalling it in the device manager. I lose all functionality after the computer sleeps or is rebooted though.

    Win 7 64 bit. I don't put mine to sleep, but after reboot my mouse works fine. I have vertical swipe and zoom, but no horizontal swipe. Sometimes it does not work at logon screen but all I have to do is click it once and it works.

    TStam,
    Can you look in Device Manager and find the Magic Mouse listed under the "Mice and other pointing devices" section and let me know if it's listed as HID-Compliant Mouse and the date of the driver. I have a date 6/21/2006. I can look at the list of drivers if I choose to update them but the only one listed under Apple is the Mighty Mouse. Thanks!!!

    I have the same issue. My MM works for a while until the comp goes into sleep or gets restarted.

    Did you already install windows 7, and then just apply the Bootcamp 3.1 update?

    Have you unchecked the box in Device Manager/Bluetooth/Apple Bluetooth/Properties/Power Management, where it says "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" ?

    If you leave it checked (default) Bluetooth will turn off after a few minutes.

    Re-reading your post I see yours doesn't work after a restart so may not be this problem. For some reason my bluetooth mighty mouse always needs a single left click after a restart, then it is instantly fine. If you try and move the mouse before clicking it won't move and looks like its not connected.

    Something tells me your Bootcamp drivers are not installing correctly. Here you go from Device Manager:

    Bluetooth Radios:

    1) Apple Built-in Bluetooth (I have a mac pro)
    -Driver Provider, Apple, Inc. Date 1/19/09, Version 2.1.2.1, Power Management IMPORTANT both boxes unchecked

    2) Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator

    Under HID:

    Apple Wireless Mouse
    -Driver Provider, Apple Inc. Date 11/30/09, Version 3.0.0.6

    Everything works in this configuration except side finger swiping. Finger zooming does work. I wish I could get side swiping working.

    I previously had an upgrade version of win 7 ultimate 64 that was bootcamped 3.0. I found it very slow so I backed up everythting and clean installed under bootcamp 3.0. It worked perfectly and performance improved dramatically....almost as fast as Snow Leopard. Bootcamp 3 was working perfectly for me. I installed the Magicmouse hack drivers at that time. When bootcamp 3.1 came out, I just upgraded and now have the correct drivers. All working fine.

    Ditto. Same happens to me. Just click the mouse once and it comes alive and stays alive as long as those power management boxes are unchecked.

    This works! Thanks... although the tracking is not 100% reliable. It sleeps for a few secs if left idle for too long.

    That was it! I just need to click the button and the mouse comes alive after sleep and reboot. Thanks!!!

    What about the 3rd button in win7??
    Is it possible to configure the mouse for it now, with bootcamp 3.1?
