That's odd. I have a Wireless Mighty Mouse and was able to start right clicking even before a driver install (it was amazing that it worked at all before the drivers).

What kind of mouse are you using?

I'm guessing he's referring to a Macbook without an external mouse.

Apple's tip page suggests command-click.

Agreed, I am sure he is talking about the built in Trackpad. What you suggested works. Either that or an external mouse.

Thats absolutely wacky. I have Windows XP installed on my MacBook and I was glade to find out that the 2 Finger Tap on my Trackpad works like a charm.

There must be some kinda settings for it. I am using Parallels though so I don't know much about Boot Camp.

it's control click, not alt click
try checking under mouse in the control panel or look around for a setting that enables this

hope you get it to work

To right click on my MB I have to touch the pad with two fingers and then click the button. I have read in multiple places that tap-to-click (on the touchpad itself) is not yet supported in Boot Camp installations. (Can anyone verify this, or better yet, dispute it?)

Otherwise, everything seems to be working great!
