I am having incompatibility problems using the FaxTiff object to get the fax
properties of tif files.
Windows XP/Visa computer cannot read the Faxtiff properties of tif files
created with Windows 2000 fax, and visa versa.
For example, FaxTiff.ReceiveTime returns "Unavailable" in Windows XP/Visa
when the tif file was created in Windows 2000 fax. Same thing happens when
using Windows 2000 to read tif files created in Windows XP or Windows 2003
It works fine using the same operating system that created the tif file.
However, for backwards (and forward) compatibility, I need to be able to
read the properties of tif files regardless of the operating system used and
the one that created it.
Any ideas on how to get both versions of the Faxtiff object to work side by
Or better yet, anyone know of a native way to read properties from tif
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
