    Specs:
    MacBook(W) 2Gb, 2Ghz & Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, Now my Apple glows colours, Red Apple and Green Leaf.
    Question Windows XP & Wireless Mighty Mouse.
    I cant find any data available, hopefully someone can shed some light.

    I'm trying to use the Wireless Mighty Mouse with BootCamp and WinXP Pro. I can get the mouse found and paired but for some reason just cant use it! The pointer does not move nor do the buttons work!

    Does anyone know of any drivers or reg hacks/haxies to get the mouse working?

    Sorry if this has been posted before, couldn't find anything when searched. Even thrashed though Google to no available help.

    Cheers

    It is stated in the Boot Camp manual that Bluetooth will not work in XP on a Mac. Also, a LOT of people have stated that there are problems with wireless mouses and keyboards in Boot Camp. Many have gotten them to work, but many haven't as well.

    What I do not understand if that is true is, my Core Duo Mac Mini works 100% perfect with my Logitech BlueTooth Mouse. Works great and never fails.

    In XP Pro SP2 by the way. It even finds my iMac G5's bluetooth in the front room and wants to connect with it to share files.
