Mouse cursor/pointer disappears on Windows Server 2012 using Cord

I had a problem that my mouse pointer disappeared when I was remoting in with Cord to a Windows 2012 Server. Often the pointer had wrong context too, was showing a text pointer instead of the regular arrow. The trick to fix this is pretty easy.

1. Go into your control panel on the Windows Server
2. Edit the Mouse settings
3. On the Pointers tab, uncheck “Enable pointer shadow”

TADA! Now it should be working correctly for you :)
