Input Director 1.2.2. Mouse Arrow Cursor dissapears when no mouse at boot...

Hi guys.

This concerns the program input director 1.2.2 configured with 1 host and 3 slaves.

If I remove the PS2 mouse from any of my 3 XP guests and then restart, the mouse arrow cursor icon disappears. The mouse is functioning and clicking as it should normally but there is no cursor (arrow) appearing on the screen. You move it blindly.
The problem begins as soon as I restart a slave without a mouse. But input director is supposed to work on mouse-less slaves, isn’t it?
I have spent more than 1 day on the issue and it is bothering me
I am here as a last resort before I buy more PS2 mouses for my slaves (which will be useless)…

Thanks in advance.

If you use a light version of windows XP or windows 2000 this problem may arise.

Use the accessibility options from control panel (if they have not already been ripped out) and set them to use keyboard keys instead of mouse buttons.

Other than that just go and buy any crappy $1 ball mouse from "Everything for $1" discount stores stick it in and pretend that nothing happened !!!

Keep it simple and Keep your nerves for the next dissaster.....(Hahahahahahaha)

Enjoy the ride
