YES!!!!!
I'm running Vista with Boot Camp (the previous version!) and the driver CD hasn't intstalled correctly yet!

All I want is keyboard eject to work on by Apple Bluetooth KB, and to have the Starup Disk option in Control Panel.

I cannot wait to get home tonight and install it!

Fricking sweet!!

I'm glad to see there is additional support for the Apple remote. It's about time!

I'm not running Boot Camp, but it's good to see Apple offer this for you guys. They could have very easily held off Windows Vista support for Leopard. I guess it's a reward for being "beta testers". Wink

That's great and all but, come on! It's all about the Leopard! I'd at least like a solid release date. That's why I'm waiting on a new macbook pro.

It sounds like you need to break out that 1.1.x drivers disk again and roll back the drivers. I guess you'll need a wired keyboard too. Wink

Did you upgrade, or do a fresh install?

I upgraded. Bear in mind that it does take Windows a minute or two to realise there's a keyboard there. Sometimes I have to reset the keyboard before Windows recognises it.

Really?
I'll let it reboot and stay on the windows sign in screen for a while.

Funny how it found it before, huh?

Even stranger is the fact the Windows originally discovered my BT keyboard before I installed any drivers when I initially installed XP. I thought I'd have to plug a USB keyboard in at first, but no.

Very strange indeed! I haven't used an Apple brand keyboard in years before getting this BT one, ironic thast my older MS wireless desktop set works better!?

I rebooted into vista and let it sit for several minutes, and nothing. It wold not find it. And when I ran the BT thing in control panel, it found, but wouldn't set it up!

OY, this is frustrating! Just like running windows on a real PC!
