Updated to Win 7/Office 2010 Pro in Dec 2010. I have a very good client (he pays on time), who is happy to have my invoice by fax.
Coming to the first this year I clicked on Print/Fax only to find an error message, "this cannot be sent at this time etc etc."
I checked the modem in Device Manager, driver OK, this device is working.
Went to Start/All programs/Windows Fax and Scan and ran through the wizard, attached the file and clicked Send. Another error message,"no fax accounts have been set up contact your system admin."
Help and Support only threw me back at the wizard and round and round we go again.
Grabbing my trusty "Windows 7 for Dummies", I must surely find the answer. But No! The word fax isn't even mentioned.
Eventually I copied the file over to my XP backup pc and sent it from there.
What to do if I didn't have a backup or if I upgrade the backup to Win7 later this year?
