Cursor XP verses FX and the Wacom Pen Tablet

Vista and The Tablet PC Tools

Sunday, December 2, 2007 by ShelbyGT_The_Car | Discussion: OS Customization

For those not aware... There is a new Cursor program from Stardock in the works for the future.
We all hope it is done soon. I'm sure of that with myself using Vista OS and a Wacom Tablet.

With the current release of CursorXP
The Tablet PC Input Panel has a bug in it for what is called Tap-Tip.exe. Which is the Tablet PC Input Panel. Which if I choose to use CursorXP I get a rather high load on the system cpu.

Tap Tip

Is a very useful tool I have and use here for many purposes. I'm really hoping that the new CursorFX is going to address this problem.

If you don't have a Wacom Tablet. Then look them over and see what you think...

will I loose my existing Cursor XP collection ?

typo corrected...
it could happen... best thing would be to make a copy of your cursor theme folder as a backup. I'm sure there is gona be some kind of import tool involved and you will maybe have to import what you have. If you have it to import... so back that thing up!

Does anyone know when FX will be released as I'm running Vista on all my systems and Cursor XP won't work on Vista? I really miss my cursor program so I hope they hurry.
