Set up Faxing.

  carper 13:35 11 Sep 2005

I have been trying to set up faxing and get the message that file fxscfgwz.dll cannot be found. There is nothing relevent in the archive, but I understand it is a common problem. I do not have the full XP disc but only OEM. I have downloaded the file from but I am no further. The file seems to be a short cut to the main file but it seems like it might be a lead to advertise an unzip programme. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,
Regards Craper

Are you seeking to install the Fax Console from Add/Remove Programs>Add/Remove Components?

It should be quite straightforward.

Which is why I asked the original question...:-)

Windows has always had an excellent fax program from the days of Windows Messaging (wms.exe) and Awefax.exe and XP is no different.

WMS was particularly easy to use as it was based on the Outlook Express template with similar folders and operation.

Thanks for your replies and I apoligise for the delay in coming back.
The sequence of things is as follows:- I go into add/remove programmes and click onto Add/remove windows components. Tick the Fax services box and click next. It then asks for the CD rom for Windows XP Home. My disc is OEM recovery only and I suspect that the file path is not present. I have downloaded the file fxscfgwz from DLL and also copied it to new folder in "my docs". I have unzipped it into C/documents and settings. The title appears to be correct in the drop down box and the file is 108 KB. It appears that a path i386 is missing and does not seem to be on the CD.
Please help I am on the point of giving up. Regards Carper

i386 is a folder where the files are extracted and should be on your hard drive. If not follow the advice in this lin (it's been posted several times lately!):

Thanks Stuarli.
I'll try that when I can give it my undivided attention and post back Regards Carper
