    I am writing an automated fax app. The above cover page settings never change. (Always use a Custom Cover page.) However, I may successfully send three faxes and then the Quick Cover window will open on the fourth send and hang the app. I have to reboot to cancel the send.

    I cannot consistently duplicate this error. It seems to occur at random. Is there a known problem with using Custom Cover pages? Any suggestions will be appreciated!


    Likely a problem with timing, since you are using AddAttachmentFile, WinFax is probably starting some other application to print the documents you are attaching. Make sure you don’t continue until WinFax is done printing.
