Importing cursor (.CUR file) gives "Error: Not a valid resource."

Resource Manager ››

PROBLEM

Attempting to import a cursor (.CUR file) into ToolBook's Resource Manager gives a dialog box with:


  Not a valid resource


REASON

ToolBook only supports 2-bit (black and white) cursors. This error will occur if the .CUR file is a 4-bit (or higher) cursor rather than a 2-bit (black and white) cursor.


SOLUTION

Only use 2-bit .CUR files.
