Nah, turning off the hardware accel didn't do much, but thanks for the suggestion.
And yep, it's a windows box (xp).
I'm brand new to python so still finding my way. One thing I thought was perhaps I could just draw a new pointer on top of the image after it's been captured.
Haven't had much luck so far - can't even get the bloody thing to tell me where the mouse actually is...
print "Mouse ="+str(mouse_pos.x)+","+str(mouse_pos.y)
I get that "context" is probably the wrong thing to pass to the MouseEvent class but what should
Okay, I searched codeproject.com for you. Here is the first link I found (Capturing the Desktop Screen with the Mouse Cursor Image): http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...e-Mouse-Cursor
Although that project uses C#, you should be able to adapt it to C by using the same Win32api calls that it makes. Or find a different project.
To download source from codeproject, you may need a free login account. Code Project downloads typically use a COPL license (which is much like MIT or BSD, allowing commercial use).
EDIT: Okay, this shows a variety of ways to capture the screen in C (some with mouse pointer):
This one is LGPL, so for commercial use you would have to wrap it in a DLL.
