I reinstalled the Boot Camp drivers and the mouse now works.

Strangely it said "Unable to complete due to metered connection" when trying to re-pair it but then it started working anyway. I don't see how it needs an Internet connection to pair a Bluetooth device.

Also, the screen resolution is the same as in OS X - I assume the difference in wallpaper appearance is due to having defaulted to a different option for fitting the image on the screen.

Glad to hear everything worked out OK for you. Normally, when the Boot Camp Assistant "sees" an optical drive on your Mac it won't allow installation from USB without some sort of a work around. However, it looks like you got it installed anyway. Nice. Have fun. :)

Still having problems intermittently with the Bluetooth Magic Mouse, but apart from that - so far - all seems fine.

Wonder how well it will cope when I allow it to install the Anniversary Update, which is waiting at the moment :)

Now using the Mac version of the game I wanted to play - Final Fantasy XIV, although I have the Windows version installed as well :)

Even have a spare PS4 controller working on the Mac. Brilliant.

Also updated Windows to the Anniversary Edition, without seeming to cause any problems. Doesn't seem all that different.
