Question about Symantec WinFax Pro for PC

1 Answer

Opening .fxr and .fxd files moved from anther computer

Hello,  I have a bunch of WinFax Pro ver 9 send and received files (FXR and FXD) that I copied from another computer.  I can open individual files by simply double clicking them.  However, I can not figure out how to get them to appear within WinFax in the send and receive logs.  Can you please help?  Thank you.

You can't unless you have the original Send and Receive Logs to go with the FXR and FXD (and also CVR, IND, FXS files etc.)

The internet connection that you use doesn't matter with WinFax, since WinFax requires a fax modem to send and receive faxes. You cannotuse your broadband modem to send receive faxes with WinFax PRO. http://www.getfaxing.com/forums

We cannot receive any faxes and get the error '


We've seen this error many times, and in most cases the problem is due to mismanagement of the send and receive logs. You probably have way too many faxes in your Receive Log (or, some corruption) You should read this

I lost all my logs and cannot get or send a fax when i try to do anything, i get the message"the following error occurred when attempting to open a folder, call failed one or more files for that phonebook...


This error indicates corruption of data, would I would suggest is to backup your data files immediately, the biggest mistake many do is by copying files while WinFax is open. Make sure WinFax is closed, and the WinFax Service is stopped when you copy or move data around.

Restoring sent and received faxes to fax logs


That's not the way to backup your logs. You copied only the fax images, and not the logs to go with them. This is a common error that is made quite often. Unless you have the original log structure, your data (logs) that link to the actual fax images (fxds, fxrs, etc.) are lost.

Bringing DATA folder from another computer, or old backups


rename the existing DATA folder that is linked to winfax to another name, like DATAORIGINAL,
then copy your DATA folder over.
Make sure Winfax is closed when you do this.
Once it is copied over, start WinFax. Your data from the old faxes should appear in WinFax

Windows Updates will not download...


Version 10.04 will not fix the problem with Windows Updates, and 10.04 will only update from a 10.03 version. Its not recommended unless you're using Fax Sharing and Windows XP.

Its possible you've overwrote some important system files in the process of copying files, but WinFax itself would not cause the problem.
