Can someone please advise how I download the cursor packs.

Every time I try there is nothing on my system that will open them.

I am using Windows 7 64 BIT. I have CursorFX installed. I am using Wincustomise to get cursors but every time I find a cursor I like and try to download it whether I click to open it or save it and then try to open it I just get the message saying I have nothing that can open it.

What do I need to do to install the cursors I want ?

All skins require the appropriate SD app to open them, Windowblinds skins require Windowblinds (app), Dreams require Deskscapes...cursors require CursorFX, etc.

If you wish the most out of customization, Object Desktop is the suite of apps to do that.

I advise spending time on Stardock's website and reading, including the FAQs.

Since you say you already have CursorFX installed, try uninstalling and re-installing it, reboot, and then double click on the CursorFX package you wish to install and apply it. If you get that message still, then there is something wrong with your Windows 7.

Try right clicking on the downloaded Cursor file and select Open with....

Find and select CFX and select OK. You may need to browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Stardock\CursorFX\ to find the CursorFX.exe if CFX isn't in the Open with list.
