    Please give us more information.

    What you are trying to do? Are you trying to fax a document? Which steps are done before error message appears?
    For example, are you opened Word document in Word, from Print dialog selected "Fax", clicked Print button and then error message appears?

    1. I open the fax console
    2. I click on new fax icon
    3. The error message: The operation cannot be completed, pops up along with the mysterious detail!
    4. From exel, access, word or any other programme that we can print from, the fax printer and cover pages are available and can be sent

    Hope this helps and would appreciate anybody throwing light on this

    Microsoft Fax console is not an independent application and does not able to send faxes by itself. This behavior is by design.
    You can use it to receive faxes.

    If you want to install a fax server on your computer, consider a third-party program.

    @ kaplinb
    Well, you do surprise me. Up until 4 days ago I have always been able to send a new fax from the fax console. I think that a windows update must have changed something.

    Re: Fax error message (XP)

    I did not realize that it works before.

    Try to reinstall Microsoft Fax (Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components > Fax Service).
    Or mMake sure that your Windows installation source (Windows Setup CD, for instance) is available and run the following command from Run dialog or from Command Prompt:

    sfc /scannow

    Note: SFC (System File Checker) may owerwrite installed patches, so visit Microsoft Update (Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Install a New Program > Windows Update) after the task is finished.
