Mouse cursor stops working with Windows NT 4

I am trying to use TP 7 on a computer that is running windows NT 4.0.

TP works OK until the first time you run a program. Then the mouse cursor (in the editor) stops working until you quit the editor and re-start it!!!

Any ideas? I am sure that I have used turbo pascal on an NT 4 machine before but I can't remember what I had to do to keep the mouse pointer visible after running a program.

    Here is a POSSIBILITY...quite often is you are manipulating external files, the system will lock is you have not closed the file. Make sure that you use the close() function for every file that you have opened. In addition, if you are using any of the EOF or EOLn functions, make sure that your scripting is concise and contains no open loops or non-ending reads. I have had both these items appear in the past. The program will compile, but, it will lock up. :-( Good luck.
