Bleeping Mouse Arrow

Recommended Posts

Not sure where to write this one, as it is not FSX directly related. In my home built 737-800 I have a small screen (4" X 4") set into my overhead panel. I use this to run ProjectMagenta 'QuickMap'running

off one of my Client PC's (using XP Home/Wideclient etc)

 

My problem is once the program starts up and links to FSX, I still have a mouse and hour glass in center of screen flashing quickly from one to the other.

 

These items are of course very small, but what ever I try in Control Panel/mouse, I can't get it to stop. I don't think this is a software issue, but something in the P.C. causing the problem. Just wondered if anyone might have an idea how to stop this?

 

Thanks

This indicates a program is trying to load and is still working.  So you need to find out what program in the background is trying to load.  You might look in your Event Viewer and see if there is any entry indicating a program cannot load.  If could of course be a Microsoft Service running too or another application like an anti-virus program looking for an update to their software.  I would terminate all of your Startup Programs by click on the Run command and typing msconfig.  Once open, click on Startup and disable all of the programs.  Restart Windows.

 

Best regards,
