Installing Cursor Theme Files

Apologies if this has been answered 1,000 times--I can't find info anywhere.

I'm not concerned about desktop themes--just cursor theme files.
I've seen and downloaded several different XP cursor files from various
sources on the web, in order to have a variety from which to choose. I cannot
seem to get them to work.

Nearly all of these include the file "NAME.CurXPTheme"-- where NAME is the
author's designation of his/her work.

I have installed them into my C:/Windows/Cursors folder, but when I go to
the Control Panel and try to change the cursor, I don't see the theme as a
choice amongst the Themes listing, nor do any individual cursors appear for
one-at-a-time selection.

What am I doing wrong, please? Any suggestions, help, tips greatly
appreciated.
Thanks--
