Did you try
/*CWnd::*/ HideCaret();
for each control?
I already developed application for touch screen and I do nothing.

Insert a cursor through resource editor. Delete the contents of the cursor. Set this cursor using LoadCursor function. If it is not working, override the OnSetCursor and return true always.

GOOD LUCK
