If you attempt to use another user profile, that user cannot change WinFax settings because that user doesn't have write access to the proper WinFax registry locations. Log into the admin account and then change winfax settings. They should then be changed for all users

Make sure you have the latest TWAIN drivers for your scanner from here

then, WinFax should automatically detect the scanner. Setup the scanner under Tools, Program Setup. Scanner.

Winfax Pick-up


Try looking at best buy for a fax switching device it can tell the difference between data and voice. I don't know how well they work but i have not used that particular program. I did find this though on another site http://www.windowsitlibrary.com/Content/238/15/1.html

You can have Microsoft Fax automatically answer every incoming call to your modem or, instead, you can manually choose which calls to answer. The quickest way to change this setting is to right-click on the fax icon on the Windows taskbar then choose Modem Properties to display the Fax Modem Properties dialog box . Another way to get to these properties is from within Exchange; choose Tools, Microsoft Fax Tools, Options, then switch to the Modem tab, select the modem, and click the Properties button.

So you have to change the settings in Exchange I assume

Cannot uninstall WinFax Pro 10 even after doing manual uninstall.


For the next 12 hours you can download for free cleanse UnInstaller Pro At Giveaway of the Day. Install it and then keep attacking every bit of Symantec you find on your computer. You may have to go back several times and keep on deleting more pieces of the programs that were there but this truly works. It's the only program I found so far that could get rid of WinFax Pro including the stuff provided by Norton. Good luck

WinFax Pro 10.0


I don't know the Operating system you are using but that version, as I remember, had a few problems. Suggest you check to A) make sure it's fully compatible, B) Check the supplier site (Symatec I believe) for issues...(under support), and C) If all else fails uninstall and reinstall. Use Ccleaner to clean the registry before reinstalling (free and you can't make a mistake) and also delete the application folder (typically under program files in an automatic install). Do the latter after using the windows add/remove programs capability. This should do it. If not bug me.
Tango.

Winfax pro suddenly faxing to wrong number


you have some options, so choose one.
  1. remove your fax
  2. configure your fax to answer later (maybe after ringing 10 times) and configure the winfax to answer before (something like ringing 5 times or less)
the problem here is that the fax answer and start receiving the fax and the winfax receive the fax signal at same time. check the winfax maybe you have the half part that the fax modem not has printed stored in winfax, maybe.

as I said, your better choice is removing the fax modem. even configuring like I said before, maybe the two continue to try to receive the fax at same time.

hope it helps.

Receiving Fax Line always 'busy'


Installing fax software can be tricky, particularly if you want to import phone-book listings from an existing database or PIM, such as Microsoft Outlook. But WinFax Pro proves easy to configure. A series of introductory screens walks you through installation; you just click Next to accept the default configuration. In our tests, WinFax Pro accurately detected our fax modem and seamlessly imported our contacts from Microsoft Outlook. By comparison, competing fax programs either don't import directly from Outlook or make the process trickier than it needs to be. you can try to look on website and there will explain to you. http://reviews.cnet.com/e-mail/winfax-pro-10-0/4505-3536_7-1536745.html

Winfax pro problem


This is a solution that was suggested for an earlier edition of the Winfax Pro, but there is no reason why it shouldn?t work on this one as well: 1. Close Winfax and any other program that has anything to do with it, delete all the temp files that yo don?t need. 2. Run Scandisk and fix any problems that may come up. 3. Run delfix.exe which is located in the winfax folder in the status files. 4. Run delfix-rebuild and delfix-optimize and check if the problem is solved. If the problem reoccurs there is another possibility- to change the name of the WinFax\data folder and create a new one which you will transfer the address book file, status files etc. from the old folder. Note that there might be some information that wouldn?t go through.
