    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:

    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.

    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.
