Uisng XP fully updated.
I had a problem when I tried to fax, system would indiate no Fax printer
available and would not allow fax to proceed. I was out of my home and had no
printer connected. I was trying to send only. In the details i read about the
error "no Fax prinetr" it said I could install a Fax printer, but I never was
able to do that. The installl fax printer was always grey and could not be
selected

I thought I would try to remove and reinstall Fax
Using the ADD Remove, I removed the Fax component and was successful.
I then tried to reinstall fax both from CD and Computer. Everything
completes and says it is installed but when I check the Communication folder,
the Fax folder shows up "empty" and when I check in the Add remove programs
it shows not checked.

any idea on what I can do to reload the FAX component???

Thanks

Any error messages along the way? Anything in Event viewer?
Do you have an analog fax modem on the Windows XP HCL list?
