Apple posts Magic Trackpad drivers for Windows

Only Boot Campers need apply

Top three mobile application threats

Windows users keen to make use of Apple's Magic Trackpad, announced yesterday, can now do so - possibly.

Apple has posted 64-bit and 32-bit Windows drivers for the gadget. Aimed at Mac users who have also installed Windows on their hard drives courtesy of Apple's Boot Camp dual-boot system, the drivers' .exe self-installer alas doesn't work on more conventional Windows Vista and 7 set-ups.

The installer patches drivers already installed during Boot Camp set-up.

Hopefully, it won't be long before an enterprising coder extracts the useful files. We'd suggest Apple saves them the bother and ensures the download works on any Windows install.

You can get the 64-bit drivers here. The 32-bit versions are available separately, here.

Apple also posted drivers for Mac OS X, allowing the Magic Trackpad to work with multi-touch trackpad-equipped notebooks. ®
