I installed Boot Camp on my Mac, then Windows 7 and the specific Windows drivers from the Mac OS X installation DVD.

On the Windows side, how can I know which version of the Boot Camp driver I am running?

Bootcamp driver for what? You need drivers in Windows 7, yes, but for hardware. Please be more specific. – alex Jan 15 '10 at 10:42

Right click on the BootCamp icon in the TaskBar, then choose "About BootCamp".
On the box that appears, you can find your version number.

BTW: what type of Mac do you have and how old is it?

Some models are not supported:

 **Note: The following models will not be supported for use with Windows 7 using Boot Camp.**

    iMac (17-inch, Early 2006) 
    iMac (17-inch, Late 2006) 
    iMac (20-inch, Early 2006) 
    iMac (20-inch, Late 2006) 
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2006)
    MacBook Pro (17-inch, Late 2006) 
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2006) 
    MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2006) 
    Mac Pro (Mid 2006, Intel Xeon Dual-core 2.66GHz or 3GHz) 

Are you sure you're using the latest drivers? I would recommend running the Apple Software Update to make sure you do.

If you disagree with me, would you mind notifying why? – Ivo Flipse Jan 15 '10 at 11:16
I installed the driver on the DVD but I want to know if it is the last one? DirectX is not working so I'm thinking about installing the nvidia driver. For info : I didn't vote you down but there is each software including driver can have different version. – Martin Delille Jan 15 '10 at 12:29
