Aha! I just figured out how I missed the 32-bit drivers last time. I must have opened the BootCamp_3.3.exe file with WinRAR. When I opened it yesterday I used 7-zip and that's how I found the seperate 64bit and 32bit archives. In WinRAR it doesn't show the complete contents.

I run XP in BootCamp here so I'm still on BC 3.2. I thought I'd be able to update to 3.3 but it doesn't support XP.

I decided to try these drivers again. After a couple of days use it seems they're stable (unlike the old 3.x ones). No BSODs to report.

 

So here's DigitalDJ's installer repacked with the newest drivers (AppleHFS.sys 5.0.0.1 and AppleMNT.sys 5.0.0.0).

 

These are 64-bit only. Tested in Win 7.

.. I guess

1. extracted by you from the most recent version of BC, and

2. still read-only

?

After upgrading from 7 to 10 my Windows backups stopped working with VSS shadow copy errors. After trying a few different things I came across a post suggesting that it was down to the Apple HFS drivers.

 

Sure enough after removing the drivers and rebooting, backups work again.

Apple have released BootCamp 6 with Windows 10 support and the new HFS drivers no longer interfere with backup here.

For a freebie app it's pretty good. I just don't like how it has to parse the whole filesystem before loading. With the HFS driver, Mac volumes shows up in Explorer like my other Windows partitions (albeit read-only) which I find much more convenient.

It works fine on a hackintosh. But unlike Paragon, it's read-only. You won't be able to write to HFS volumes from Windows.
