Hi everybody,
My question is that how can i capture the image of the point-to-link cursor(the one with one finger raise up) in a brower(IE4 or Netscape communicator)?
I have try the Print Screen button and ScreenPrint Gold 2.0, they can only give me the screen image, not that of the mouse cursor.  Any suggestion is appreciated.

Capture Control Panel - Mouse - Pointers screen.

I had try this before.  But i cannot find the point-to-link cursor in the control panel's pointer screen.

Sorry for that. My system is 98 and I take things for granted. If it's the image itself you're after, you can find it in the 5kb gif at http://www.turvaja.ee/roke/images/cursors.gif.

Alternatively I can try find software that can grab cursors. For that matter, PCX-DUMP should be the ideal tool for the purpose. OK?

Thank u for the gif. Did u get it with PCX-DUMP? Where can i get this?
Did u get the 70 points.  I am not sure wether i give it out or not because it is the first time i am here.

Why the point-to-link image cursor does not exist in the .cur file? It is generated by the brower?
Did u successfully capture the mouse pointer image using PCX-Dump?
