I have UserPort and also tried Direct i/o and cannot get access to any LPT
for CW keying.  Tried all the addresses I could conjure up and nothing
worked.  Sort of frustrating as I have been working on this for 3 days with
no luck.  Wanted to work SS this weekend.

LPT keying is not supported under XP unless you install a 3rd party 
program.  Please see:


I just installed UserPort and it worked fine.

Don't know what you mean about the SEND QRZ & ENTER feature.
