Faxing fr Vista Home Ed.
Vista Home Edition does not come with software for faxing?

Any freeware faxing apps that work?

Thanks.

Re: Faxing fr Vista Home Ed.
I don't believe there are any freeware applications, however, there are two
inexpensive commercial applications:

Snappy Fax

RKSFax

Re: Faxing fr Vista Home Ed.
The only "free" software I know about is the free version from BVRP:

http://www.usr.com/bvrp/bvrp.asp

This comes bundled with USR modems, I do not know if it will work with other
brands or not. As to the other two and 64 bit, that's an unknown and I'd
bet both RKS and Snappy would either have words on it somewhere, or would be
interested in discussing it with you.

RE: Faxing fr Vista Home Ed.
I can not believe that vista home p. is faxless. I have been spending days
trying to send a fax. I show that I have a fax and that it is ready and
running properly yet it is not there in all reality. What is going on? I am
so totaly frustrated. I think we should all send in letters to Microsoft
Corp. and see if they wont make a free download available.

Re: Faxing fr Vista Home Ed.
Well, believe it. The Home versions do not have Fax & scan.

Fax:
Some have recommended a free alternative...
http://www.usr.com/bvrp/bvrp.asp
Version 9.03

Or for $30 (30 day free trial)
http://www.snappysoftware.com/

Scan:
I purchased VueScan ($40) for my scanning needs.
