    Unhappy WinXP in Boot Camp right click how?
    I did a search; this problem has been reported repeatedly but I didn't see any reference to a solution.

    Problem: when first installed, WinXP in Boot Camp understood both the "two-finger" right click and standard left click options using the trackpad on my MBP. But a subsequent boot-up to the WinXP side resulted in complete loss of "clickability" on the trackpad itself. I can't click, double-click, left-click, or two-finger scroll any more ... all of which I could do the last time.

    Is there a place to download the driver and re-install? Using the built-in WinXP driver update, the computer downloads a generic MS mouse driver.

    The Boot Camp disks has drivers for the trackpad, but I don't think 2 finger scrolling works in Xp.. What version of BootCamp do you have?

    I have 1.1.2 beta. I don't have a CD to burn to right now but I saved the drivers to my desktop and will try to re-install them when I get home from the weekend.

    Thanks!

    Pardon my double post ...

    I found the root cause of my problem.

    The root cause of my problem was: me.

    I forgot it was "two fingers on trackpad, click" to right-click in WinXP. I kept thinking it worked the same way as Mac OS X. That's what I get for using a mouse for a week and forgetting how to do it "native style."

    Mea culpa.

    same problem here- nothing works. ctrl click doesn't work, and clicking the trackpad with 2 fingers down doesn't work. any ideas anyone? bit peed off, paid over a thousand quid for this macbook pro and can't even right-click, so it's unuseable for me at the moment.
