      FYI, Here's Alex's problem with later versions of Windows.

      Brad

      "I am sorry, but Rocky cannot be "ported" to Vista. Rocky uses direct
      access to the soundcard via the WDM driver; Microsoft says that this
      method is not guaranteed to work on the versions of Windows above XP.
      Direct access is a must for low-latency CW keyer implemented in Rocky.

      73 Alex VE3NEA"

      "On 'Rocky': The author, Alex, made a pretty firm statement nearly two
      years ago that 'Rocky' would, "never be ported to Vista." So I think
      that is that. He gave no particular reason but has reiterated the
      comment a couple of times to my knowledge. I have no idea if he might
      consider the possibilities with Windows 7 but at this point in time with
      so many open source, voluntary software offerings, I suspect he may have
      to consider a whole new application if he were to put time into a
      revision. Perhaps there is enough such software in the wings already."
