EAW mouse issues where the Large mouse cursor (immovable) stays on center of screen also sometimes after 'launch' to fly a small mouse cursor replaces it

The mouse cursor thing can usually be fixed by
1. Launching EAW.exe via OAW program only
2. Right click the eaw.exe in windows explorer and select "open" instead of double-clicking it

3. if this still does not work, or if you gets error from eaw at program launch @ : file not found fonts.cdf (or similar)
make a short to eaw.exe from your desktop and launch that way
