CTWin sends excellent CW under Windows via the LPT port, same as CT under
DOS.  CTWin runs well under Windows XP.  Maybe some on this list are
currently using CTWin under Windows 7 (I haven't tried it, and I no longer
use CT or CTWin).

CTWin 10.04.001 or CTWin 9.92.001.

CT and CTWin support external DVK activation via LPT pins, so any external
voice keyer supporting those LPT pins should work.  See


However, "DVK Stop" doesn't seem to be supported via any documented pin
(some software uses Pin 2), so pressing Escape may not halt the DVK
