    More info. What file type is it? What are you trying to do with it? Does it have a name or link?

    .cur files do not need any file association. Try just putting the .cur file in the C:\Windows\Cursors folder. After that, it should appear in the Mouse settings as a choice for a cursor.

    If you open up your hard drive where it says programs, and users and all that. Click on windows and a cursors folder should be there.

    Type in your start C:\Windows\Cursors and see what the result is. You should be in the cursor directory.
