Windows® fax drivers

If you plan to use the Windows® fax modem drivers, you are required to install Microsoft® Fax prior to configuring GFI FaxMaker, otherwise GFI FaxMaker will not detect them. To install:

Installing Fax Services

1. Install the fax modem(s) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Update with the latest modem drivers from the manufacturer website; do not rely on the automatically detected driver of Microsoft® Windows®. If the modem supports fax, then Windows® should install the Microsoft® fax service.

2. Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows® components and ensure that Microsoft® Fax services are enabled.

3. Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services applet and ensure that the Microsoft® Fax service (‘Fax’) is started and set to automatic.

4. Go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes and ensure that the Microsoft® Fax printer driver is installed.

5. Send a test fax to the Microsoft® Fax printer driver to ensure it is working.

6. Once you run the GFI FaxMaker set-up, the installation wizard will recognize this fax modem and you will be able to configure fax lines that use the Microsoft® fax drivers.
