    How do I download the Windows Fax and Scan

    Somewhere along the way, I am missing the Windows Vista Fax and Scan. How
    can I download or what file is it on the software?

    By the way, my new email address is:

    hlush@tampabay.rr.com

    If you have a home version of Vista, you won't find it. It's only included
    with
    Business and Ultimate versions. You'll have to seek out a third party
    version.

    Tom,

    I had it previously on my computer w/Home Premium.

    No, you didn't. As Mr. Lake said, Windows Fax and Scan is not included
    in the Home Basic/Premium versions of Vista. You may have had a faxing
    program included with printer software.

    If you have Vista Home Basic/Premium and you want to fax from your
    computer, you will need a third-party faxing program that is compatible
    with Vista.

    Remember that OEM copies of vista may differ from the standard versions.

    No, they just don't think they need to give it away free anymore since it's
    not part of an operating system. They re-thought their bundling offerings.

    Re: How do I download the Windows Fax and Scan

    I thought finally I would get myself A NEW laptop.So instead of a Mac which I
    have always I had I figured I would give Windows a chance. So I have a Vista
    laptop. I looked for the faxing software to send a fax and thought I was
    going crazy. Windows was able to in the past. They don't have fax on Vista.
    What in the world are they thinking? With all the problems I have heard about
    it. I am sorry I went to Microsoft. I think instead of going backwards they
    should go forwards. retain an obvious useful function. Common sense is that
    it should still be on the machine.

    FAX not available in Vista Home Basic Premium. It is available in Ultimate,
    Extreme and Business.

    You might consider Snappy Fax at a slight cost:
    http://www.snappysoftware.com/

    or the Free version from BVRP:
    http://www.usr.com/bvrp/bvrp.asp

    or a full BVRP Classic Phone Tools 9: $29.90
    http://www.shop.avanquest.com/usa/pr...S_CPT_homepage


    I’ve used all of these. Snappy fax screen look a bit crude but the product
    actually is fairly feature rich and works fine. BVRP also works fine,
    screen looks a little better. Other than that, there are minor differences
    in performance between the two.

    ...Well that's just weird...

    I use Vista Business (32-bit) at work... There's no Fax and Scan.

    ...Furthermore...

    I use Vista Business (64-bit) at home... There's no Fax and Scan there EITHER.

    Re: How do I download the Windows Fax and Scan

    Are you sure it's Vista Business and not Vista Enterprise? It can be
    installed as an optional component on Enterprise.

    To quote Microsoft:

    "Windows Fax and Scan is on the main All Programs menu of the Windows Vista
    Business and Windows Vista Ultimate editions. It can be installed as an
    optional component in Windows Vista Enterprise. Windows Fax and Scan enables
    you to perform all faxing and scanning tasks and manage all of your faxes
    and scanned documents from one location."

    Re: How do I download the Windows Fax and Scan

    How sad is this Bob?

    I am unable to print .tif documents properly - received through an e-fax
    service on my brand new Laptop with Vista Premium on.

    I do not care to be able to fax because it is not cost effective anyway. I
    live in South Africa and find the additional cost to buy (In $'s) a
    functionality that I have paid for in the past alarming and to be frank -
    dishonest. I do not refer to support for Fax Viewer but I dit pay for the
    actual software when I bought XP.

    The term "bundling offerings" is just a smart word to disguise the simple
    principle of stealing from people who does not have the resources to take on
    a giant company like Microsoft. I believe that one day Microsoft will reap
    what they are sowing.
