Workaound exist for Custom Mouse pointer in .NET?

Previous to VB.NET one could make custom mouse cursors but its no longer supported:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vbcon/html/vbup2036.asp

and I am aware of this API call for that worked in VB 6 but does not seem to in .NET:
http://www.mentalis.org/apilist/CreateCursor.shtml


Question: Is anyone aware of a workaround to make a custom mouse cursor while using Forms in .NET?

I tried making a PictureBox follow the cursor around on screen using a mouse move event handler but the performance was terrible.

Thanks,

Craig
