Enable Mouse Pointer
« on: 2019-Aug-13 »
I get this when I compile:

!!! EnableMouseInPointer() not found in user32.dll. If this is >=Win8, you get no mouse messages.

Is there a simple fix for this?

Not a bug.

We use a Windows 8+ feature here if present.

The compile error you see is a message from glbasic source code and is not from compiler. The code is just skipped on Windows 7 as im see in the code.
