I am using kindlevncviewer to display the screen of a Windows XP PC on a Kindle. This VNC viewer, however, seems to be incapable of displaying a mouse cursor.

Is there a small app for Windows XP that can make a (non-rectangular) window follow the mouse cursor position?

That window should display something like a mouse cursor itself, but as it's a window and not a real cursor, it will be rendered by kindlevncviewer (or any other program that has the same issue, such as simple screen capture programs).

I already tried Neko 98, which would be better than nothing, but the cat is not showing in the VNC client.

I too use this. And would love to get this working.

An application level solution would be handling LibVNCClient's HandleCursorPosProc callback properly within kindlevncviewer itself.

This is beyond my powers but worth mentioning. This point has been raised on the MobileRead

This is interesting, thanks! Though I think your message would better be a comment to my question. – feklee Feb 18 '13 at 21:38
Maybe so... I didn't see an add comment link on your question (still don't now) so was careful to craft this as a partial answer at the very least. ;) – twobob Feb 19 '13 at 21:27
I value your insight. Still, I designed this question to not be specific to kindlevncviewer. It's really just about adding a second cursor. – feklee Feb 19 '13 at 22:26
