You should be able to convert the file to a .png format using imagemagick, then use xcursorgen to convert to X11.
Code:
convert icon:file.cur file.png
Cheers,

Josh

thank you!!

I actually was looking for the x11 theme:
- windows 95 ms
- windows xp ms

but surprinsingly it seems that no one made one like that ... so it seems that convert is the only way ...
