invisible putty cursor

Because of a render problem with Vista’s default text cursor, the mouse will be invisible in the putty window. There is a workaround:

Change the text cursor from beam_i.cur to beam_r.cur
Control Panel -> Mouse -> Pointers -> Text Select (Choose beam_r.cur)

    Brilliant, it works. On our Terminal Server all new Users see a black Cursor in Putty (actually they don’t see the cursor). I guess some Windows update changed the default registry settings.

    Thanks for this help!
