Hi. I know there is a solution for this --- saving a theme file directly from my present desktop. But i don't know why (maybe due to a heavly nLited installation) the "Desktop\Properties\Save theme as..." function doesn't work on my computer.
So, I'm doing it the hard way. That means by hand, at least the mouse pointers part.

Ok, I've got this, so far...

- the Fedora Inverse set, and the installation .inf file.
- i've managed to execute the .inf from a .cmd during Windows installation, so the Mouse Pointers are copying to the right folder and then appearing in the Mouse configuration dialogue box.
- finally, the .theme file created by nLite, wich i'm editing by adding the [Control Panel\Cursors] entry.

I think I've managed to set thing up like this.

[Control Panel\Cursors]
Arrow="Normal Select.cur"
Help="Help Select.cur"
AppStarting="Working In Background.cur"
SizeNS="Vertical Resize.cur"
SizeWE="Horizontal Resize.cur"
Crosshair="Precision Select.cur"
IBeam="Text Select.cur"
SizeNWSE= "Diagonal Resize 1.cur"
SizeNESW="Diagonal Resize 2.cur"
DefaultValue=Windows default

Maybe someone could take a look and see if I'm pointing in the right direction? I'm not sure about the "Default value" parts.
I'm going to try it in VMWare, but i would love some help.

Thanks 0d14r3!

I did a VMWare installation before going to bed and it worked out great. I'll post my settings when I get home tonight, but It's just like yours. Plus, i've managed to set the wallpaper too (that came as a surprise :D :D ).
