I can't seem to get the trackpad to work on my MacBook Pro. I have tried the Boot Camp drivers with no luck.

Does anybody know what drivers are needed for Windows 8 and a MacBook Pro trackpad?

EDIT: With Windows being out for a while now, anybody got a solution to this problem yet?

I use an external mouse as a workaround. Have not yet been able to find a solution myself. –  Rob Aug 7 '12 at 15:54

From: How do i get my macbookpro trackpad working with Windows 8? - Microsoft Community

I upgraded windows 7 enterprise to windows 8 (build 9200, 26 Oct 2012 release) there was no response from the the trackpad and I was getting code (1) error when trying to install manually the win 7 trackpad driver, but a mouse worked fine. What worked for me to get back all supported gestures and the trackpad is:

  1. uninstall both trackpad drivers from device manager. For some reason I was seeing two trackpad devices. (Type devmgmt.msc in Search bar to access it).

  2. Then right click on the trackpad device chose update driver -> "choose location on the computer" -> then "let me pick from list of devices" -> select "usb input device" !!! for both trackpad divers.

  3. Then simply run the bootcamp 4 disk, but do a repair. Everything works fine.

(Macbook pro early 2011 13" with latest lion and dual boot with windows 8 enterprise)
