I’m using Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 for demos and stuff and the cursor disappears whenever it is suposed to be an I-Beam. This happens over text boxes and combo boxes – anything with an I-Beam.
I emailed someone on the VPC team and he suggested changing the cursor theme. This didn’t seem to work but I found a workaround. I changed two settings in the VPC: I turned off “hide my cursor when I’m typing” and also turned on the cursor trails. At least that was I could figure out where my cursor is.
Good enough for now.
