This solution works fine.
And I couldn`t agree more Wiz!
I don`t expect CFX to work under W8, SD doesn`t say so, so that it (mostly) works is great since I bought it for XP and upgraded a way back.
However, can there not easily be a line(s) in CFX that sais "IF in .... use default cursor"
Startscreen, appscreen and charmsbars could be, among others, such an exception.
Maybe as a temporary fix?
On the other hand, I can live with this minor inconvenience and wait for a W8 supported CFXTouch-upgrade with maybe options to change behaviour/look of touchbuttons included and where your selected cursor shows where it fails now.
(For fun it would be nice to see your screen go up in smoke and stars everytime you touch a button, that`ll teach 'm to use your device without asking. (Okay, for personal use just the button. ))
