    I just install AppleTrackpadInstaller64(bootcamp 3). This fixed trackpad problem in the windows 8.

    But in the bootcamp control panle, the trackpad tab is missing.

    The update to boot camp is now available!

     

    Just installed Windows 8.1 Pro to my MacBook Pro, Retina, Mid 2012, OS X 10.8.5: Memory 16GB 1600MHz DDR3

    Boot Camp Support Software 5.0.5033

     

    This solved the Trackpad Right Clicking issue (not working) as well as tapping.

     

    The wireless and network connectivity issues where resolved as well. The Boot camp support software enabled a boot camp control panel available in the windows 8 system tray and from there you can enable the track pad to tap and use the secondary click.

    Hi, everybody. I found a solution how to sort it out touchpad, cause after upgrade to win7 by boot camp assistant didn't work right button on the bottom.

     

    Here what I did:

     

    * load it your Windows 7

    * press it Window button in the bottom of the left side corner

    * in search box tip it: boot camp

    * when you open it, have a look on a top, there are written: Trackpad

    * I ticked all empty boxes:

           * Tap to click

           * Dragging

           * Drag lock

           * Secondary click: Bottom right corner

           * Two fingers: Secondary tap

    * Press it Apply button and restart your Laptop

     

    It helped me, so I hope that it gonna help for some of you too..

     

    I have latest MacBook Pro 15.4inch with OS X Mavericks and Boot Camp 5.1.0

    This was the perfect fix.  These are the instructions that Apple should have posted somewhere...until they figure out how to just get it to work on install in the first place.
