  • Microsoft CodeView for Windows 3.07

This article was previously published under Q93003


Using the CodeView for Windows debugger (CVW3.EXE) version 3.07 provided with version 3.1 of the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK), no text cursor is displayed.


The system has one of the following video cards installed:

IBM Printer Card with MGA output
Hercules Plus


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in CodeView for Windows, version 3.07. This problem was corrected in CodeView for Windows, version 4.0.


When the CodeView screen appears, the mouse cursor appears normally while the text cursor is displayed in the upper left hand corner of the screen. However, the CodeView application works correctly.
