Maybe he should look into the acsio4all driver which so many other softwares use to bypass windows wdm or direct sound

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

"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."
