Fax...Initial Setup
Hi:
I have an HP dv6500z notebook running Windows Vista Home premium 32-bit.
This laptop cames with a buil-in fax/modem.
I am trying to use the faxing capability but cannot find any application to
run.
Windows is suppose to have this.
HP told me to downlaod/install SoftPaq 37725.
I have a successful install, but I still do not have any fax program to run.
Please advise...
Thank you...
DaleB

Windows Fax and Scan is only available with Windows Vista Ultimate, Business
and Enterprise editions. Can you use some other software like the various
packages that may be bundled with your scanner or printer to fax documents?

Vista has fax support only in the Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate
editions. You don't have it. You have the following three choices:

1. Upgrade to Business or Ultimate.

2. Buy third-party fax software.

3. Buy a stand-alone fax machine.

Choice number 3 is what I think works the best for most people. My fax
machine cost me only $20 US, on sale.

Re: Fax...Initial Setup
Scan and Fax is NOT included with any version of Vista Home, you need Vista
Business or Ultimate to get it. There are a number of third party
applications that get along well with Vista, here are several:

Snappy Fax

RKSFax

VentaFax
http://www.ventafax.com/
FaxTalk FaxCenter Pro 7.5
