Dear Mohamed, I have the same problem as Alex, since I had Windows 8 installed on BootCamp already. The problem now is that camera, trackpad, etc etc are not working on my Windows anymore. I downloaded the drivers as you said, but how do I install them? If I double click on setup.exe on my Windows partition, it says the file "cannot be run on this computer". If I do it whilst in Mac mode, it does not run the file either. Please help.

I don't get it. I already had BootCamp support software for my Windows 7 installation on my Mac. How is this different or new?
