WinFax PRO for Windows 8, 7 x64 bit,Torrents and counterfeit CDs January 19th, 2011
We have noticed an increased number of links to fake (pirated/illegal) WinFax software. These links contain malware and viruses. We also noticed fake links to file torrents. There is no such product as WinFax for Windows 7 (x64). These are fake torrents and contain virus/malware. There is no version of WinFax software that will support any x64 operating system or Windows 7/Vista. Stay away from these links!
If you purchased WinFax software and have a questions regarding if it is fake or not, let us know and we can check it out for you. If you purchased a download of Symantec WinFax PRO, it is an illegal copy and could contain malware.
WinFax PRO is no longer being sold & distributed by Symantec and the only way to purchase a legitimate version is 2nd hand (used) or New Old Stock (NOS) from a retailer.
There are also counterfeit CDs in existance, and they are poor quality copies of the original. Don’t get ripped off by purchasing a WinFax PRO CD! The picture above is an image of an actual FAKE / COUNTERFEIT WinFax PRO CD. If in doubt, ask the seller to send you a picture of the actual CD they are selling. Compare it with the picture here. It is difficult to determine the fake from a real CD if you have never seen an authentic CD, but once you compare the two, the differences are easy to spot.
The first clue is if your CD contains the version of WinFax PRO. All official CDs will only list version 10.0 on the CD. Authentic CDs do not include version identifiers 10.02 or 10.03. This is not listed on the CD anywhere. Official CDs are on silver “shiney” surface where “WinFax PRO” is printed. A dull matte-finish is a fake CD.
Here is an image of a real “10.02″ or “10.03″ WinFax PRO CD ROM. See that the silver portion is shiney, and the version has “10.0″ beside WinFax PRO. The fake version has 10.03 printed on the CD ROM.
Version 10.0 and Version 10.01 authentic CD ROMS have a different CD design and to our knowlege, counterfeits likely don’t exist for these versions.

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
