  • Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2


Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2, you connect to a Web site by using Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer. The Web site contains one or more compressed files, such as an embedded GIF file. In this scenario, the pointer becomes an hourglass symbol when the site is loading. However, the pointer never reverts to the standard pointer symbol as expected. The pointer remains an hourglass symbol.

Note This problem does not occur in Microsoft Windows CE 6.0.
