[SD-User] Winkey with SD

Hi all, I've just built up a Winkey keyer.  It works fine, except that when using the paddle within SD it is not very responsive, i.e. there is a noticeable time delay between hitting the paddle and a dot or dash resulting, which makes sending CW quite difficult.  This does not happen using the Winkey test program - the paddle keying is fine then.
I get the same problem using a real com port or virtual (USB) com port - it makes no difference.  The PC is an 866MHz P3 running XP.  I've tinkered with the Winkey settings a bit but to no avail.
Has anyone else had this problem, and what is the fix please?
Thanks / 73 Fraser G4BJM
