This is a limitation in Windows XP. Here we provide a work-around option:
- Please download the attachment [DisableForceCapBlt_XP.zip].
- Extract the zip file and execute [DisableForceCapBlt_XP.reg] (e.g. by double-clicking on it). This may trigger a system warning message; please agree to proceed.
- Connect to the Windows XP computer again from the Splashtop app.
- Check to see if the mouse cursor still flickers or not.
There is something we need to highlight here: This workaround may cause a limitation related to the Windows transparency effect. That is, for a Windows transparency-effect UI, it may not be shown on the tablet when you connect to your XP. This would be the trade-off. The mouse would hopefully no longer flicker, but the Windows transparency-effect UI would not carry over to the client display.
NOTE: This work-around will be incompatible with some Splashtop apps like Splashtop Whiteboard and Splashtop Presenter.
We are continuing to look for other solutions to this Windows XP limitation.
