[Trlog] Help Please Windows XP

I have been using TR 6.79 with good success on a Windows 98 
computer.  Both Omni VI+ radio interface and CW keying work fine.

I have just put a Windows XP computer in the shack.  The radio 
interface works fine, but I can't get CW keying to work.  I use LPT1 
on the 98 computer and the LPT1 on the XP computer.  I have KEYER 
RADIO ONE OUTPUT PORT = PARALLEL 1 in my .cfg file for both 
computers.  I switched back to the 98 machine and CW keying still 
works so the homemade interface box still "works." Device Manager for 
the 98 machine says LPT1 is a standard port.  Device Manager for the 
XP machine says LPT1 is ECP.  LPT1 on the XP machine works fine with 
a printer.

Any suggestions?
