    Fax Printer (WXpHeSp2)

    My fax printer has vanished and cannot be reinstalled from Printers and Faxes - clicking on the item results in nothing. So, on to the original cd and the location i386win9migfaxawdvstub.exe. [This used to work - moons ago] This results in a missing programme file fxstiff.dll message. Can anyone tell me how to repair or re-install it, and from where please?

    You can download that DLL from many sites, for example fxstiff.dll download, but you may also be able to find it on your own PC - have you searched for it?

    Thanks for that Hans - I have found the file but still cannot install the fax printer. From Printers & Faxes, nothing happens when I click on Install a local fax printer. Any further suggestions please?

    I don't really know, it's outside my field. I guess you'll have to repair Windows, but I'd wait to see what others recommend.

    I've read, somewhere, that you can register a .dll file. Can anyone point me in that direction please?

    Select Start | Run...
    Type the word regsvr32 followed by a space, then the full path and filename of the dll file between quotes, e.g.
    <code>
    regsvr32 "C:WindowsSystem32fxstiff.dll"
    </code>
    Press Enter or click OK.
    If everything goes well you should see a message that the dll has been registered successfully.
