    I am trying to send a Word file to Winfax 10.02 and have it process the fax using the Photo quality driver.

    Some code –

    Set objFax = CreateObject(“WinFax.SDKSend”)

    objFax.ShowSendScreen 0
    objFax.SetUseCover 0
    objFax.SetSubject pstrSubject
    objFax.SetCompany pstrCompany
    objFax.SetPriority 2

    objFax.SetCountryCode strPhoneCountry
    objFax.SetAreaCode strPhoneArea
    objFax.SetNumber strPhoneNumber
    objFax.SetTo pstrRecipient

    objFax.AddAttachmentFile strFileName ‘a Word file

    int1 = objFax.Send(1)

    Do While (objFax.IsEntryIDReady(0) <> 1)


    If I set ShowSendScreen = 1 then Winfax uses my default Printer Driver properties. If ShowSendScreen = 0 WinFax always uses the high speed driver. Any ideas?


    Do you have WinFax set to use the High Quality driver by default?


    No – I have the Photo quality driver set by default


    Ok the problem is that if you “attach” files it will always use the regular (high-speed) printer driver. It does not use the High Quality driver ever, because when the SDK was developed the High Quality driver did not exist. No changes were made to the SDK to directly support the high quality driver. Now if you simply print from an application (such as Word) you can use the high quality driver because you have to switch the WinFax driver first. There is a workaround for this, that is to rename the High Quality printer with the same name as the regular WinFax driver. In this case, all your output from WinFax will always use the High Quality driver.


    I have already tried that, but the fax is still not in photo quality mode. Does this have something to do with the printer port? I noticed the two WinFax printers have different port names.


    yes there are two ports because there are two seperate printer drivers.

    did you rename the driver like this:

    Rename the WinFax printer.

    Click Start, point to Settings, and click Printers.
    Select the WinFax printer, click File, and click Rename.
    Rename the file to OldWinFax
    Select the WinFax Photo Quality printer, click File, and click Rename.
    Rename the printer to WinFax.
    Close the Printer window.
