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.

to install this on a mac pro 2008 you just have to start the BootCamp.msi. you can find it under: BootCamp/Drivers/Apple/BootCamp.msi you also need Administrator privileges to install.

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.
