VB6.0 MouseIcon Color Control

When I change the mouseicon and mousepointer properties in my application (VB6.0), the icon changes during runtime, but there is no color.  The entire cursor is black.  I may be missing an .ocx or a .dll in my registry, but I haven't the foggiest idea what is missing.  Can you help me without suggesting a third party product for something that should be functional with the Enterprise Edition?
This is on an NT4.0 work station with Service Pack 5.

you have no problem and your system does not miss a thing.
you can set the MouseIcon to CUR file or to ICO file.
The ICO will be dispalyed in color.
The CUR -Black & White.

Guess if I want to use a color .cur file I'll HAVE to use third party software.  Thanks for your help.
