    Download could not continue error in Bootcamp Assistant

    I am using the Bootcamp Assistant in my Snow Leopard and when I try to download the Windows drivers I get the error message as “Download could not continue - The Windows support software is not available”. What should be done for this issue now? Can someone give me the steps which I need to follow for resolving the issue? Thank you.

    Boot Camp support for downloading the Windows drivers is not more supported to any OS version earlier than the Lion OS. So the only thing possible now to do is to download the drivers directly from your Mac OS X installation CD.

    Now once you have installed the drivers from the Installation disk. Just close the Boot Camp application in your Mac and then restart it again where you will be going to the window which says “Select Tasks” -> Now from there deselect the option “Download the latest Windows support software from Apple” and then continue with the onscreen instructions which should be working fine.
