If you encounter problems with AGWPE, you can e-mail me NM5RM. Remember I am not the software author and I don't pretend to be the complete AGWPE sound card expert, but I will try to answer your questions. For the best troubleshooting help, I suggest you subscribe to a special AGWPE Yahoo Group email list to ask for help from the AGWPE user community, which includes the AGWPE author, George SV2AGW.
