UPDATE: These drivers are now included with the Bootcamp download and fully supported.

Just returned from the Apple store opening at Chermside and got myself a few bits including the new Magic Mouse. The first thing I noticed is that scrolling doesn’t work with my Bootcamped Windows 7 – searching around on the Apple support site I came across a Bluetooth update for Windows.

Download the “Bluetooth Update 1.0 for Windows” from here

When you run this you will get the error below, luckily this check is only done by the bootstrapper so we need to extract the msi installer files as this is a self executing archive.

I’m a WinRar fan although 7Zip should also work, just extract all the files in the download “AppleBcUpdate.exe” and you should see 5 files.

You can see here both x86 and x64 catered for, I installed “AppleWirelessMouse64.exe” first then “AppleBluetoothBroadcomInstaller64.exe” as I’m on Windows 7 x64, choose the alternative versions if your on a 32bit version of Windows 7.

After installing these drivers the Mouse went completely dead, I had to reboot, delete the mouse from Devices and Printers and then re-add it – Bingo scrolling now works.

I tried Explorer, Firefox and IE – All scrolled fine, both vertically and horizontal.
