    How to do that with custom cursors?


    Hi mates! How are you?! I'm sure you're so good!

    Well, I'm going to make my question (be patient, please, with this post and my english):

    When I'm using Chrome, and I want to move a favourite from one folder to another, cursor does that:

    Click image for larger version -> Click image for larger version

    It changes.

    Now, if I change the cursor (for this example and see clearly, I'm going to use Mac OSX's cursors), it happens:
    Click image for larger version -> Click image for larger version
    It changes again. But, because of I'm using OSX's cursors, it's weird.

    I found a cursor pack at DeviantArt (sometime ago) where it was a dll patched with the cursors, and I'm sure it changes this effect, and when you do what I'm doing in this images, it shows the custom cursors.

    My question: is it possible to make? I mean, I want the same cursor when I do that. I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and in my laptop, Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

    Thank you in advance!

    Yes. The cursor pack should be adapted to be compatible with Ole32.dll patching; otherwise, Windows cracks at startup with a BSOD.

    Thanks to everyone for reading this post. I'll mark as solved as soon as I can touch a computer.
