I built MAX232 CIV interface for my PRO3 and used it with a great success with USB to Serial converter, but could not resist when I saw price of this cable which works great:
IMHO, answer for CW under XP is K1EL's Winkey which in my setup works nice with another USB to Serial converter.
Hope this helps...

No, it's a laptop. Have already done the PCI serial port thing in a
fedw desktops. Works great.
