When I open a CAD drawing, the cursor does not appear either in the work space or on the tool bars. How can I recover the cursor within the CAD window?

The cursor has now appeared but I do not get a response when I click on Tools. Also tried to type in command line - Graphicsconfigure but it as if there is no connection. I am not allowed to type in command line.

Please close Autocad

Ran as administrator. Now back to no cursor. I paid for LandFX support so I will contact them.
