    Hello,

    I have the same issue with my HP Elitepad 900 G1 running Windows 8.1.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi liviunazarie, I suggest you take this up with Vectir's support if you haven't yet done so. Responsiveness is always good and I only turned to this forum in this case when it turned out more outside knowledge was needed.

    Let us know how it goes!

    This problem is not exclusive to touchpad devices.

    I installed Windows 8.1 in an old desktop machine I have so I could hook it up to the tv and use the Netflix app. My plan was to use the Remote Mouse app on my iPhone, but the cursor doesn't show up unless there's an actual mouse connected to the machine (and it disappears as soon as I disconnect the mouse).

    Would using Move Mouse work for you, perhaps? Alternatively, disabling mouse suppression?

    Is it just when you run the program??

    No. If I turn on the machine without a mouse Windows starts without a cursor, it only shows up when I connect the mouse, and disappears again when I disconnect it.

    Sadly no. Best way I found to work around this was to install Windows 7 in place of Windows 8.1.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "EnableCursorSuppression"=dword:00000001
    is the answer, change the dword: value to 0 and the cursor should reappear, no need for any additional process.
    It has just worked for me with remote desktop into Windows 10. And then stopped working <sigh>
