I am looking for the exe files for BootCamp drivers for Windows 10. I installed Windows 10 on my Mac 4 months ago using the ISO and BootCamp assistant but then I reinstalled it directly on the partition which made the BootCamp drivers go away, and now some things (such as right click and two finger touchpad scrolling) don't work. I want to get the drivers without having to reinstall Windows (at the beginning Mac gives you the BootCamp installation files as an exe but I can't find them anywhere online.)

NEW SOLUTION

Open Boot Camp Assistant, and click on "Action" in the menu bar.

Click on Download Windows Support Software.

OLD SOLUTION

You can download the drivers from Boot Camp Assistant.

First, uncheck "Create a Windows 7 or later install disk" and "Install Windows 7 or later version", leaving only "Download the latest Windows support software from Apple" option checked. It should look something like this:

Boot Camp Assistant

Make sure you have a USB drive connected, and click continue. You should see a screen like this:

Boot Camp Storage Screen.

Select your drive and click on continue. It should download it to the connected USB drive.

Reboot into Windows, and install the support software from the USB.

Edit: I found Brigadier, a software that fetches and installs the drivers for you on Windows. I'll take a look at it, when I have more time.

  • Also, just tried using Brigadier.exe and it downloaded it but it failed to install because the version of BootCamp it downloaded was designed for Windows 8.1: i.imgur.com/jWn0VAx.png – kirill2485 Jul 26 '16 at 2:28
  • @kirill2485 What if you download it from Mac OS X? What is your Macbook model? I'll try downloading it for you. – PoisonNinja Jul 26 '16 at 2:44
