WIndows XP fax console

by kdugo / January 29, 2009 2:33 AM PST

In attempting to install the fax console component, the Windows XP Professional disc is required. Since it was installed by Dell, we do not have the disc. Any suggestions?

In Explorer, look for a folder called i386. If you have it, what the program needs is located there. If it's not there, call Dell and pitch a fit. They are supposed to include that folder on all machines. No joy there? Find a friend with an XP CD, version doesn't matter.

hey thanks so much for your reply. The file it is looking for is 'fxscfgwz'. I am unable to locate it in i386. Any other file that may suffice?

It's in my i386 folder, 'cause I copied it from my Win XP Pro CD to my hard drive. Have you searched your hard drive for the file?

Then, this is interesting:

But remember this. That file may be only the first one FAX needs. There may be others. If so, you need to find a friend with an XP CD, version not a concern. If you can find a CD, just insert it at the prompt.

I certainly did search for the files to no avail. I downloaded the dll file from the link you provided, but as you mentioned, more unavailable files are needed for the fax. Just got off the phone with Dell...they are sending the Windows XP Pro disc that was never sent initially due to some sort of reduction initiative. Thanks for all your advice.

Once in system 32 folder the file it looks for is fxsclntR. Again, not there. Will wait for the Windows XP Pro disc and hope it works.
