do this == install the driver. I found out the UI detects the fax driver
name and hides it, that's why the driver is never listed. So I'm sure you
found the driver but the UI did not display the driver.

The good news is there is a KB / white paper for this.

The bad news is it is still in review.

The good news for you, there are tools included in the OS to install the
driver without using the UI.

the easiest way to install the driver is first copy the 32bit files to the
64bit server

the 32bit fax files are located on a 32bit machine under
\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\prnms002.inf_?????? (?? is a
GUID reference).

there will be an i386 directory that also needs to be copied.

on the x64 machine I copied the x86 fax files to C:\fax\x86

than in an elevated command window

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /m "Microsoft Shared Fax Driver" /h
"x86" /v "Type 3 − User Mode" /f C:\fax\x86\prnms002.inf

printui /? will give you the options for accessing printui interfaces using
rundll32.



you can also use prndrvr.vbs in system32\printing_admin_scripts

        Thanks, Alan. Can you explain what you mean by "do this"? I tried
        connecting from a 32 bit vista client, and got similar results. I tried
        adding the 32 bit fax driver from the vista client and from the server,
        but
        it keeps prompting me provide a printer driver. I tried directing it to
        XP,
        Vista, and Server 2008 32 and 64 bit media, but can't seem to locate the
        fax
        driver it's looking for.

        Thanks again for your assistance.

        BK

                             "print" to the shared fax device on the server
                             from my 32 bit XP
                             clients.

                             When I try to add the x32 drivers to the
                             shared fax printer on the
                             server,
                             I'm prompted to "please provide a printer
                             driver". I've tried
                             pointing
                             to 32
                             bit XP media, 64 bit Server 2008 media,
                             tried loading the driver from
                             an
                             XP
                             and Vista PC via the server share, but it
                             doesn't accept any of these
                             paths.

                             From my XP PC, I can browse to the share
                             on the server & connect the
                             fax
                             print device. It appears on my XP PC as
                             "Fax on %servername%". I can
                             open
                             the fax console on my XP PC & see jobs that
                             are in the outbox
                             (submitted
                             from
                             the server). When I attempt to create a new
                             fax from the XP fax
                             console,
                             I
                             get an hourglass for a brief moment, and
                             then nothing. If I try &
                             print
                             to
                             the fax "print" driver from the XP PC, I get
                             nothing. I believe with
                             the
                             x32
                             W2K3 fax server I worked with a wizard
                             came up asking for the fax
                             number,
                             select a cover page, etc.

                             I'm assuming this is because I don't have the
                             x32 fax driver loaded on
                             the
                             server. Any ideas on how I can add this?
