Installing Fax from XP

  RickB 15:04 29 Jan 2008

Hi. I am trying to install the Fax component of Windows Xp - i don't want to send faxes but i want it to answer and destroy the junk faxes that keep hitting my phone line.
Trouble is during the installation process it asks for various dll files that are apparently on the Service Pack 2 disc (SP2 is already installed).
So I put in the SP2 disc and define the drive location but it can't locate them and bombs.
What can i do to get round this one?

To be brutally honest, if you do succeed, the sending machine will mark you up as a genuine fax line - you will get even more.

Should have said - works for me as does TPS.

If you have broadband, then a Fax program will not work - you require a dial-up fax modem.
