Good Evening,
I just installed CW Get on my MB1. The only issue I have is that it will not decode any CW Signals.
In Setup, Interface, I have Line 1 as the Input Soundcard Number, Input Soundcard Channel is Mono,
Real soundcard sample rate is 48000. Output is Line 2 and Output Soundcard Channel is Mono. It is receiving audio but not decoding anything.
Hopefully someone is also using this program.
Please help!
Thanks!

First of all, there is no good substitute for decding from the IQ stream. You will have far more success with the SDC Skimmer decoder windows or The Afreet CW Skimmer.

CW Get is very old and not designed to work with SDR radios. That said, there are set up instructions contained within the program that will help you if you feel you want to persevere. One of those clearly staes the need to connect to a soundcard. If you have followed the UMA properly, you will note that this means attaching CW Get to VAC Line 8 and not Line 1.

This produces the best result you likely to get with this program:

As you can see it decodes but does not correctly read all of the time. SDC Skimmer is nearly 100% accurate even with the weakest of signals when set up correctly:
