        Hi Greg,

        Faros is not officially supported on Vista and probably will never be.
        This program needs to accurately estimate the signal delay which requires a
        direct access to the WDM audio driver as described at the
        Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/audio/DirectKS.mspx
        .
        Unfortunately, Microsoft states, "Be forewarned that the DirectKS approach
        is unlikely to work on operating systems after Windows XP and Windows Server
        2003".

        A number of users have reported that Faros worked fine on their Vista
        systems,
        so YMMV.
