Classic Phone Tools in Vista Home Premium SP2

  jayatissa 16:10 09 Jan 2010

I installed BVRP Classic Phone Tools Version 4.01 to my note book runing under Windows Vista Home Premium SP2. Its modem is HDAUDIO SoftData Fax Modem with Smart CP. The Phone Tools Software can not recognise the modem if it detects it. I wnat to send and receive Faxes using this Notebook PC and hence I try to get it installed. Could any one helpe to get this problem resolved. Thanks.

They don't appear to have any kind of support for their product, so I would suggest you try a similar program from Avanquest - Classic PhoneTools 9 click here. See if the trial works & is any good before purchasing.

If you need help, they have Tech support click here & a dedicated forum click here. G

P.S. After a few searches it appears the two programs are the same thing? Looks like Avanquest took over BVRP's CPT at some stage.

Thank you. Would you mind recommending a free software to deal Faxes in Vista Home premium environment with this modem. I greately appreciate your advice.

Sorry I don't have any recommendation, as I've never used my PC to send/receive faxes before.

How often/how many faxes do you need to send on a daily/monthly basis? If it is a significant amount, US$19.90 (~£12.50 GBP) for the Avanquest CPT program appears a small price to pay. Give it a try to see if it's any good & meets your requirements. G
