Custom cursors installation.

1 post in this topic

Hi.

I am in need of a little help here with the registy entries when installing cursors.

Below is my inf file that i use.

[Version]
signature="$WINDOWS NT$"
DriverVer=1.0,5.1.2600.5512

[DestinationDirs]
Cursors.CopyFiles = 10,Cursors

[DefaultInstall]

Copyfiles = Cursors.CopyFiles
AddReg = Cursor.AddReg


[SourceDisksFiles]
aero_arrow.cur = 1
aero_busy.ani = 1
aero_ew.cur = 1
aero_helpsel.cur = 1
aero_link.cur = 1
aero_move.cur = 1
aero_nesw.cur = 1
aero_ns.cur = 1
aero_nwse.cur = 1
aero_pen.cur = 1
aero_prec.cur = 1
aero_select.cur = 1
aero_unavail.cur = 1
aero_up.cur = 1
aero_working.ani = 1

[SourceDisksNames.x86]
1="Default Cursors","\win51",,"\i386"

[Cursors.CopyFiles]

AERO_EW.CUR = "aero_ew.cur"
AERO_HELPSEL.CUR = "aero_helpsel.cur"
AERO_LINK.CUR = "aero_link.cur"
AERO_MOVE.CUR = "aero_move.cur"
AERO_NESW.CUR = "aero_nesw.cur"
AERO_NS.CUR = "aero_ns.cur"

AERO_UNAVAIL.CUR = "aero_unavail.cur"
AERO_UP.CUR = "aero_up.cur"
AERO_WORKING.ANI = "aero_working.ani"
MP_REG_SCHEMES = "Control Panel\Cursors"
MP_REG_SCHEMES_HKLM = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Cursors\Schemes"
CURSOR_NAME = "Aero"

Now, the problem i am having is with the text in Bold. It seems to get written to the registry ok as the Areo cursors show up on the 'Please Wait' screen but on the Welcome screen the cursors revert back to the default cursors and in the registry i get the following instead of the lines in bold.

HKCU,Control Panel\Cursors

(Default)					Aero
Hand "%SYSTEMROOT%\Cursors\aero_link.cur"
Scheme Source 0x00000001 (1)

And if i right click on the inf file and select install, everything is as it should be.

Is there something in any of the other .inf files that might be causing this?

Many Thanks for any help.

Regards

Worf
