I recently bought a new Magic keyboard with numeric pad but cannot get it to work properly on bootcamp.
Sep 20, 2012 Expand your Mac Keyboard with a number pad While cropped keyboards are small enough to carry in your bag, the lack of a number pad can be annoying. This app turns your iPhone or iPad into a number block with integrated trackpad.
I reinstalled the drivers, updated osx, pair and unpaired the keyboard, and called technical support, but none seemed to have helped.
The magic keyboard without a numeric pad works well but when I unpaired it, the tab on bootcamp control panel for keyboards disappeared, so I'm assuming the error has something to do with bootcamp not registering the device as an apple keyboard.

Any suggestions on how to get it to work?

I added an external silver numeric Targus USB keypad (Model: PAUK10U Item: 10 from Office Depot) and initially had a problem with the MBPro recognizing it. It now is functioning normally. Here's how I did it:
When you first plug it in, the MBP will recognize a keyboard was added via USB. The 'press the key to the right of the fn key' instruction will not work since there is no fn key on the external keypad as there would be on a keyboard.
If you have already gone through this step or closed out the dialog box accidently, you can find it in Apple>System Preferences>Keyboard & Mouse>Keyboard>[Change Keyboard Type]>[Continue]>(hit any key)>[Skip]>[ANSI(United States)]>[Done]. Follow these steps if you are currently at this initial newly found keyboard dialog box as well.
You may notice that when in Excel, a number will appear momentarily, but not register. To correct this, press the Num Lock key ON THE EXTERNAL KEYPAD and while holding it down, press a number key. Then release the Num Lock key. The Num Lock LED will remain on during this procedure and you hopefully will find that all keys function normally as marked in or out of Num Lock mode.
