Windows Fax and Scan is included with Windows Vista Business and Ultimate
versions, it is not included with, nor can it be acquired for Vista Home and
Basic versions. If you have Vista Business or Ultimate, it is available

Since the above comes bundled with new USR modems, I don't know if it will
work with non-USR modems. Note that NONE of these products are designed to

with an analog fax modem. The only way you can use your computer to fax
with your 5440CN is if Brother provided a driver to do it.
