Seems OK to me.
Run it under a debugger and see what error it reports.

I changed LoadCursorFromFile to LoadCursor..(Iortga's comment)
but result is same ..(system down).
Is there anyone know this problem ?
HELP ~~~~... T.T

I want to solve this problem.
if you are technical programer,
please send me your answer....

The second LoadCursorFromFile (that is supposed to load the default system animated cursor) will fail and return a NULL handle if there is not animated system cursor (just an ordinary cursor).  Then the SetSystemCursor call will fail.

Function return to NULL or not
my problem is why system is down...

use or not use secound SetSystemCursor..
happen to same result that system is down ..

I think that secound SetSystemCursor is not related to
this problem.

before you send me answer. run this simple source and
examine your answer is correct or not.
I have run it.

Your code causes the system to hang.

This code does not...

at start of program...

#define OCR_NORMAL          32512
hcur = ::LoadCursorFromFile ("C\\WINDOWS\\CURSORS\\APPLE.ANI");                    
at end of program...

hcur = ::LoadCursor(NULL,IDC_ARROW);

It appears that the second LoadCursorFromFile in your code was at fault.

The above code was adapted from a MS KB article that shows how to modify the system cursor.

If you have any other problems, they are not due to the changing and restoring of the cursor
