Ok, you will never get this one. If I put a cursor in a resource file and then call it to be the cursor for that form it works fine and everything untill I press down the left mouse button and hold it then it blinks and you can hardly see it. Note: If I call the cursor from the regular location, Ex. form1.mouseicon = C:\windows\cursor\Pen.cur, then it works fine. Also this is after the program is made into a .exe, if it is run from VB it works. I want the cursor in the resource file though. How can I get it to work right? Note2: This is in Visual Basic 6.0 with Win98 and plenty of memory and all that good stuff.
