    I do not believe that Apple has made Mountain Lion compatible with Windows 8 yet in Bootcamp, so it will not work correctly.  You will have to use Windows 7 for the time being.

    If you have additional Bootcamp questions you should post in the Bootcamp forum where the Bootcamp gurus hang out. https://discussions.apple.com/community/windows_software/boot_camp

    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


    After going through the usual process from boot camp, then installed windows and the support drivers... the trackpad rt click did not work. I had to then go download the boot camp again from windows 8 using the url below and ran the set up.exe from the boot camp folder you can download from below. Run it within windows 8.




    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.
