I tried two-finger-click and drag. Nope, doesn't work.

I tried clicking in the bottom right corner with one finger, but can't seem to drag.

I'm on a early 2011 Macbook Pro running Bootcamp 4 and OS X Lion.

What version of bootcamp? – Aaron Lake Apr 26 '12 at 14:13
Im using version 4 of Bootcamp. – Young Apr 26 '12 at 14:21
Did you look at the settings in the control pannel for bootcamp? Also, I haven't seen this problem myself but a little Googling turned up people reverting to version 3.1 of the trackpad drivers for bootcamp. – Aaron Lake Apr 26 '12 at 14:23
Yes, I looked into the control panel. It has settings to allow me to enable lower-right-corner emulation of right-clicking, which works... I can definitely right-click, I just can't DRAG while holding down the right button. – Young Apr 26 '12 at 14:30
Does it work if you plug in a mouse? – user479 Apr 27 '12 at 0:09

If you plug in a mouse it works, I don't have a mouse though so I've been hoping to find a solution to using the trackpad, and since Control-click doesn't work, I'm stuck.
