ive just learned my win7 rc1 has a windows fax and scan - unfortunately i cant get it to to work , i dont know if this is because i deleted the FAX from "printers and devices" due to printer problems (wanting to print to pm files) so i deleted everything in there apart from the printer

is there a way of getting it back? - add device looks for a physical device


i was kinda hoping i could make the fax (which i can) then plug my modem into phone socket and bobs yer uncle

stuck!

P.S. its an EPSON DX8400

This is what you'd do on XP. Maybe you can "translate" to Windows 7 (and maybe I can find it tomorrow when I'm on 7).

Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components - Fax Services.

Windows 7 update.

Control Panel - Programs and Features - Turn Windows features on or off - expand Print and Document Services - if Windows Fax and Scan is already on (checked) turn it off - then turn Windows Fax and Scan on.

I haven't tested this, but I think that will bring the Fax service back.
