I'm surprised this isn't available through Apple Software Update. Also, when I downloaded this update and ran setup.exe as instructed, it offered to "Repair" my existing installation - no "Install" button, even though I'm upgrading the previous version. I don't know how to find out whether the drivers on my system were updated or not.

If you open your control panel in Windows and go to Programs -- Uninstall a program, you will see the most current applications listed at the top of the list. More than likely these will be the new drivers that were installed by the BootCamp driver update.

This doesn't support my perfect good 2009 MBP. I can't get my Windows 8 Boot Camp partition to run without crashing. I have resorted to VMware which is not quite the same thing. Once again I am very disappointed with Apple's forced obsolescence policy.

I'm disappointed that Apple has chosen not to support Windows 8 on my 2008 Mac Pro. I already have it installed and running fine (installed overtop of a previous XP Boot Camp partition), except for a problem where the wireless connection is very slow compared to Ethernet or OS X, but I'd rather have the additional features and functionality of the Boot Camp software. Trying to run the installer provided just gives an error dialog saying my machine isn't supported. If anyone finds a way to force the installer to continue, please post it here. Also note that the old Boot Camp 4 drivers never worked in Win 8 for me. If I install them, I get a BSOD after restarting and need to roll the install back in order to log in.

I am in the same boat as you. Feel cheated that are cutting off 2008 Mac Pro of features and upgrades so early.


you might try running the installer from inside of Pacifist (available on MacUpdate)

I can not promise it will work, but it has been known to bypass limitation placed by Apple Installers.


Roxzilla, this is a Windows installer, not an OS X installer (since it installs Windows drivers and other support software). Pacifist is an OS X program and only works with OS X install packages.



I am aware of that, however, you should be able to find a DMG inside of the installer using pacifist. You can burn that to a DVD, and it should have the drivers in it. I did this with a previous version of BootCamp with it's initial support of VISTA.

The drivers are somewhere in the installer, they could be inside of a folder, but either way, you should be able to find them, extract them. There are many ways to get them onto your bootcamp partition. You might need to install the drivers manually once inside of windows.

Out of curiosity, did you try to open this file with Pacifist?
