Sorry, no. It's Mac OS X only. I'm not familiar enough with Windows
tools to know of a replacement (I do all my Windows icons and cursors on
a Mac) but maybe someone here does. There has got to be something
equivalent, I'd think.
There is one more old trick that people used to use, but I haven't
mentioned it because several people have said it no longer works. But I
guess it is worth a try. Import your image (at the correct size) as a
GIF image. Using the pencil tool, edit a pixel or two. The editing is
what matters; you don't have to keep the changes. For example, you can
toggle one pixel from black to white, and then toggle it back to black
again. Then choose a non-paint tool to stop editing.
This used to force the image to the correct palette for use as a cursor,
provided your image was black and white to begin with. You might want to
see if that works.
