The WinFax printer add failed. Error code ->1797, 1930, or 126 November 22nd, 2009
WinFax printer add failed. Error code ->1797 or 126 and other error codes.
If you are experiencing errors installing the WinFax printer driver, such as Error Code ->1797 or Error Code->126 you may have problems with the WinFax driver files.
Symantec has a list of troubleshooting steps here, but we’ve found these are usually not always effective in solving this problem (and is very time consuming, a reinstall is usually not required).
Subscribers to our forums and download access to WinFax Tools can automatically check for these files and repair any errors automatically.
This error can be fixed in WinFax Tools by clicking on “Install & Setup Tools” and then, “Install Printer Driver”
WinFax printer add failed. Error code ->1930
WinFax PRO and TalkWorks PRO requires a Windows compatible operating system such as Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP (32 bit only) that will support Kernel Mode (Type 2) printer drivers. Microsoft VISTA and Windows 7 do not support Kernel Mode printer drivers. While Windows 2003 does support kernel mode printers, they are blocked by default. Windows 2003 requires a policy change to allow for Kernel mode printer driver installation. You must disallow Kernel Mode blocking in Windows 2003 before you can install the WinFax printer drivers.
Incompatible = any 64 bit operating system, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and later operating systems.
Compatible = Windows XP (32 bit), Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.1, Windows 9x, Me
