change mouse-cursor

Hello !

I try to change the cursor on the form like this :

Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor
'reading from database
'showing file
Me.Cursor = Cursors.Arrow
But this doesn't change the cursor at all

I have also tried this :

Me.Cursor = New Cursor("wait01.cur")
But nothing happens..

Can anyone help me ?

I can't reproduce the problem with Framework 1.1 on WinXP. The cursor
changes as expected.

Curious. Grasping at straws here, but you're sure the mouse settings are
correct? Check Mouse pointer settings in Control Panel?
