Windows 7 Ultimate x86 build 7600 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
 
 

1. Copy the dinosaur pointers from any XP installation (C:\Windows\Cursors) to Windows 7 -> C:\Windows\Cursors
2. Goto Start -> type "Mouse" and then goto Pointers tab
3. Change each pointer as needed
4. Save the scheme (Save As button)
5. Done.

EDIT: I've added the Dinosaur Cursors from XP.
This is the scheme in XP

Thank you! Still works just fine with the cursors in that ZIP. A few in the ZIP are still in Windows, just skip the copy for those.
