I have a MacBook Pro 17" early 2009 running Snow Leopard, I've recently upgraded Windows 7 running on the bootcamp partition to Windows 8.

All works fine apart from the trackpad.

Bootcamp 3.1 is installed, I've tried upgrading to 3.2 but I get an error message saying "Boot Camp requires that your computer is running Windows 7.". I've tried running the install in compatibility mode but no luck.

I've tried uninstalling the touchpad from the device manager and reinstalling from the Bootcamp drivers folder but it still has "This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)" as the device status.

Anyone got any ideas? I'm willing to upgrade Snow Leopard if it's certain to fix this issue.
