If the install.inf does not work, (User Account Control blocks it) you can still install the cursors using a guide like this one

Cursor Sans Install Guide:
Extract the "Cursor Sans" folder from the zip file.
Right Click "install.inf" and select "install". (use "install_colorhere.inf" for different accent colors.) 
Go to Control Panel>Hardware>Devices>Mouse>Pointers and select the "Cursor Sans" scheme.
Cursors are now installed! They can be found at "%windir%\Cursors\Cursor Sans"
If you want to; delete the files you extracted.

Cursor Sans Bold Install Guide:
Extract the "Cursor Sans Bold" folder from the zip file.
Right Click "install.inf" and select "install". (use "install_colorhere.inf" for different accent colors.) 
Go to Control Panel>Hardware>Devices>Mouse>Pointers and select the "Cursor Sans Bold" scheme.
Cursors are now installed! They can be found at "%windir%\Cursors\Cursor Sans Bold"
If you want to; delete the files you extracted.

Cursor Sans Light Install Guide:

Great Cursor, Can You Add A Hand Cursor For The Link One Though? The Link Cursor There Doesnt Have The Charm Of The Hand

Ah, when I first started making these cursors windows 8 was new and I could never find anything about High DPI cursors, Looking now there are some tools available that should make it easy to do.
Should be available soon, As long as I don't forget about it!

This guide should help you use the cursors without the install.ini

Hi :)

There appears to be a file missing, busy_ultra.ani, I get this error everytime I want to select Cursor Sans Ultra in the Mouse Properites.

can I use it, I will credit you for it! Great work.
okay okay, I am working on a si-fi game and I need some cool looking mouse cursors, and this caught my eye, so will it be okay if I can use it and credit you on the main menu?

If you are still interested in using it; yes that would be fine.
I published this under CC-BY-SA 4.0 so people would know they can use it without needing to ask, I guess you missed that. :(
