Hello, i'm trying to edit an existing theme file. The Hand cursor refuses to set using the .theme file.

Heres what I have:

[Control Panel\Cursors]
Arrow=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Normal.cur
Help=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Help.cur
AppStarting=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Working.ani
Wait=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Busy.ani
NWPen=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Hand.cur
No=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Unavailable.ani
SizeNS=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_V.ani
SizeWE=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_H.ani
Crosshair=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Cross.cur
IBeam=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_text.ani
SizeNWSE=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_1.ani
SizeNESW=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_2.ani
SizeAll=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Move.cur
UpArrow=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Alternate.cur
Hand=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Link.ani
DefaultValue=Windows default
Link=%WinDir%resources\Themes\ChaNinja\Cursors\ChaN_Link.ani

However, Hand is not being set. The file exists and the path is correct. I get the default hand.

Any ideas?

Just set everything up the way you want it. eg sound scheme, mourse cursor, window fonts, window size, theme and desktop background. Once this is to your liking, go to Display Propeties / Themes tab and choose SAVE AS. save the theme file and copy the theme file to your UA cd. When windows loads this theme file it will also load all the other options you have set,

Just add the THEME location to your WINNT.SIF
