Installing Windows Fax and Scan on Server 2008


  • According to all sources, the DESKTOP EXPERIENCE feature of Windows Server 2008 is supposed to contain the Windows Fax and Scan feature. I have the DESKTOP EXPERIENCE installed and there I am unable to locate fax and scan features on my server. Tried copying the WFS.EXE file and associated DLL to the server from a Windows 7 machine hoping it was standalone to no avail. 

    Anyone know how to install Fax and Scan services on a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise (not R2)?
