Yes, It is possible to download the Bootcamp drivers outside of the Bootcamp tool: UPDATE : Apple have published a table of 'which download you need for which model' at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634 For WinXP, see robmathers' answer. The hard way, taken from http://www.cafe-encounter.net/p682/download-bootcamp-drivers is, I think, no longer ...

First of all, connect the adapter and reboot. In many cases, it will solve the problem. You need to reboot because the adapter is not hot-pluggable. For the same reason, if you remove and re-insert the adapter, it won't work until you reboot. If you still have difficulties, I've found driver information while looking at the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet ...

To expand on what CajunLuke said about changing the configuration on a per app basis. If you have Logitech Control Center for OS X installed you can use Advanced click settings for just VMFusion using the following steps. System Settings > Control Center Click the Plus button next to the global settings drop down and navigate to VMFusion and click ...

Try this: Apple DL1443: Boot Camp Software Update 3.3 for Windows. It's called an update, but I suspect it doesn't require any pre-existing installed drivers. That said, it's probably worth your while to keep a minimal OS X install, even if it's just on a spare external drive (you could probably get away with a 16 GB USB drive even). It gives you a good ...

Use Better touch tool. Freeware. You can assign macros to any button with this wonderful tool.

I've fixed this my using Fusion's "Key Mappings" feature. CajunLuke is correct: Windows was receiving "Win+Left" and "Win+Right", I simply re-mapped "Cmd+Left" to "Alt+Left" and "Cmd+Right" to "Alt+Right", and Explorer et al. seem to work correctly now.

The first place you'll most probably want to look at is the Print & Scan option within System Preferences. There you'll see a list of all printers that you have installed. You can optionally uninstall each of them by clicking on the minus '-' at the bottom of the list. Also, if you are troubleshooting printer issues, you might want to try ...

This feature was removed in OS X 10.8. You have to use the CUPS interface by running cupsctl WebInterface=yes from Terminal and then pointing a Web browser to http://localhost:631. From there: Open the Printers tab. Select your printer and select Modify Printer from the second drop-down menu. (You’ll have to provide your OS credentials.) Select your ...

You will need the admin password to install the driver. Xone comes with a kernel extension aka kext file. Kernel extensions are installed in /System/Library/Extensions/, only administrators can modify the contents of this folder. Ask an admin if he is willing to do it for you :)

Since the accepted answer here is incorrect, and daniel svenson's answer is mostly correct but lacking explanation, I will try to answer the question completely for future readers. Since Mac OS 10.2 through at least 10.11, printing is handled by the CUPS system and this answer is the same. While drivers are typically found in /Library/Printers, the folder ...

The new Keyboard driver on Bootcamp broke the connection for my keyboard under Windows 10 and it might break yours too. So after using the solution from Zidad for the last couple of months (thank you) I decided to find a better solution to be able to use the Fn button and all the volume and multimedia functions of the Apple keyboard, here is what you need ...

Run this in the Terminal: lpinfo -m -h 127.0.0.1:631 It will list all drivers for the local host.

The drivers for Intel GPU HD4000 are modified by apple and the revisions are delivered to you bundled in software updates. If you want a access to specific driver open the installation package from 10.9 with specific tools for that and get it from there.

I have made some progress and a partial answer to my question is that it is not the driver that fails but Apple's smart card daemon. Restarting it sudo killall pcscd sudo /usr/sbin/pcscd -fda has so far solved my problem everytime.

Since you didn't mention you had a backup of the system or if you are equipped to troubleshoot a driver issue, you should probably not update things unless you have a problem. Apple vets the drivers it provides to be sure they work well with Mac hardware - so although you are free to update drivers, you are skipping that vetting process. Unless the driver ...

Ok, I got it to work. I would not recommend using this technique, but it works, I hope someone posts a better solution. Set up gioteck VX-1: Get a Sony controller and set it up (See Next Section, if you don't have a Sony controller, you can copy my values, which may work, just remember that the steps below will be slightly different since you will be ...

Your wife has excellent taste in input devices. I use the same trackball daily, and if I can't also find a solid Lion solution, I'll be heartbroken (not to mention much less productive). History: Kensington shipped four models of this type. The Expert and Turbo versions had slightly different coloring, and each came in wired and wireless versions. ...

If it was easy to find all of the system items associated with an application, Migration Assistant would've done it for you; generally, if it can't figure it out, the easiest solution is to reinstall the software that didn't come over cleanly. There is an alternative, however: clone the entire volume with something like Carbon Copy Cloner. This'll get all ...

No, because of completely different executable-architectures. Only if you're willing to recompile them for OSX and they're Darwin based.

Then, it asks to press the key on the left of right shift. When I press 'Z' key three times Z is on the right of the left Shift key. You sure you pressing the right keys? According to your post you should be pressing the "/" key.

Plug in a USB drive that is formatted with FAT while on Mac OS and run Bootcamp Utility, then select the download Windows drivers option. Reboot back into Windows and run Bootcamp.exe/Setup.exe either from AutoPlay or manually.

Based on the information provided I would say the mouse settings are not been loaded. You can add the "MicrosoftMouseHelper" to the log in items area. That should override the OS X defaults. The file should be located in your /Library/PreferencePanes/Microsoft Mouse.PrefPane/Contents/Resources/MicrosoftMouseHelper

Miroslav This problem is probably due to kext signing introduced with OS X 10.10 Yosemite. With it you can't run any unsigned drivers and Splix is being a port of Samsung GDI open sourced driver is just a driver and last version being from 2008 it is definitely unsigned. Basically you have no choice but disable kext signing if you want to use the printer. ...

I am on Yosemite and wasted my whole day with this and finally came up with a simple but interesting solution. Since there is no other option, I used an application like WMware Fusion (or Parallel Desktop). You can install any version of windows. For instance, I installed the good old Windows XP. As long as your printer's legit driver is available for ...

The important Apple drivers which Windows invariably doesn't have updates for are Facetime camera, Apple keyboard/trackpad/mouse, and the IR receiver. Beyond these you can update any drivers that MS has to offer through Windows Update, and I've had no issues with downloading video drivers directly from nVidia. Always create a restore point so you can ...

AFAIK the Apple HFS+ drivers are read-only. You may have installed another read/write driver like Paragon. To remove Apple HFS+ Driver: Browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ Move AppleHFS.sys & AppleMNT.sys to the Recycle Bin Create a Remove_AppleHFS.reg file with a text editor like NotePad and the following content: Windows Registry Editor Version ...

Hardware Drivers in OS X are typically in the form of Kernel Extensions and the primary location is /System/Library/Extensions/ however they can also be within an Application Bundle. You can use kextunload to unload a Kernel extension. To see what Kernel extensions are loaded use the kextstat command in a Terminal. Have a look at the manual page ...

I was having this same problem with a Canon Printer and OSX El Capitan 10.11.2. I found out from Canon's website that I needed to specify Line Printer Daemon (LPD) as the Protocol instead of Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) which was selected by default. After selecting LPD, there was no "Unable to connect to ... due to an error. Would you still like to ...
