  • After weeks of investigation I threw the winfax in the bin and downloaded the free version of Active-Fax. Especially if you have ISDN modem, as I do, this software is far better.

    You can download it here http://www.actfax.com/en/download.html.

    The license for one user is free and the key to enter during installation is 10025-49480

    And the best of everything is that when you customize the software and you want to keep the settings in case you want to format your drive or install it on another computer, you copy all files of C:\Program Files\ActiveFax to the same location in your new computer and reinstall. All your settings and faxes are preserved.

     

    You owe me one, because it took me weeks of frustration till I find this software.

  • How do you install the xp on a vista programmed laptop? Do you have to uninstall the vista first?

  • Has anyone found a way to import faxes from Talk Works Pro into ActFax server or some other program. I am finding it be very difficult. Please help.

    Oh, and for those of you who decided to use ActFax, have you disabled a lot of features?

  • Right click on winfax icon on systemtray ->Programm Setup -> Diling and Locations
    Go on tab Locations
    At Locations field choose: dial as entered
    Don' t forget to uncheck "Wait for dialtone" everywhere. There are not dial tone in Greece.
