EXE has constant hourglass spinning

Tool: Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, PSScriptPad, PowerShell Module

I am using PowerShell 5.1 and VS Code with PowerShell Pro Tools.

I created a GUI for my script using PSScriptPad. My EXE works great, but the mouse shows it is always spinning when I mouse over the application. This makes placing the curser in text boxes a little tricky. Can anyone suggest anything to check that might explain the constant hourglass?

Thank you for all who offer suggestions.

Do you know if you’ve set the Cursor property at all on your form?


Thank you for the suggestion. I tried adding that to my $Form1_Load section but it did not resolve the issue. I don’t set that value anywhere else.

For anyone else that runs into this…the problem was that the UseWaitCursor property was set to $true. Setting it to false fixed the issue.
