Update 1/03/2010:Download the latest version from here
I received a few emails asking for a version of PenAttention that runs on Windows XP (not Tablet PC edition), primarily for folks using an external tablet like a Wacom USB tablet. Apparently the cursor still gets changed to a dot for those using external tablets, but the Tablet PC extensions that the program assumes exist cause the program to crash.
As a result I've come up with CursorAttention. This program is almost identical to PenAttention, except it doesn't automatically detect if you're using the pen or the mouse and only do the highlighting if the pen is used. It just always applies the highlight or always changes the icon no matter if you use the pen or mouse. You can manually revert back to a regular mouse pointer or pen cursor with just a few clicks, though.
To download the installer for this program click the link below:
IMPORTANT: If the program installs but the highlight doesn't follow your pen, try installing this Microsoft redistributable update for C++:
UPDATE #2: If the program doesn't install or there is flickering, check this post: http://www.math.uaa.alaska.edu/~afkjm/techteach/?q=node/63
UPDATE #3: Here is a version that runs on a 64 bit OS.
