Windows console mode compile.
Please note, Windows console mode is NOT DOS.

When in full screen mode:
mpresent () works.
mcol () works.
mrow () works.
msetcursor () does not work.
mhide () does not work.
msetpos () does not work.
msetbounds () does not work.

I don't know what else works or does not work.

This can be ascertained fairly easily by using xPrompt
or the hbscript utility. For Windows, both utility
programs appear to be compiled in console mode. Try
issuing reasonable mouse functions there. NONE change
the cursor at all or reset it.

This is posted in the forum, but no one seems to
understand that it isn't DOS.
