Does anyone know of a better means of imforming the user that something is
taking place behind the scenes without using the busy cursor? This is to
allow to user to undertake another task without waiting for the first to
complete

Thanks.

You could use some kind of animated icon in the window where the process is taking place (like in most web browsers when they are downloading a page).

You could also use a progress bar of some description.
