    you might have updated TW using a patch downloaded from Symantec. It might still be on your system, search for that TW*.exe file or another called patch.exe

    Yea, I thought of that, too. Even searched some old archive cd’s I keep… but no joy. I hate live update. I even spent quite a bit of time searching the internet… you never know what’s laying around out there… still no luck.

    Haven’t heard from Symantec, either… they’ll probably just ignore me.

    So, my only option looks like trying to move files from my old NT install to the new XP. A global copy didn’t work (thought it was BASIC, not PRO… see above). Any idea why that happened?

    If I could circumvent it, maybe I can get a working(Y2K compatible) system. There are a lot of different files between the systems… if I knew more, maybe just a select few would do the trick.

    You’re probably better off getting a copy of TalkWorks PRO 3.0 instead. You won’t find it in stores (unless its in the bargain bin) but you’ll probably find a copy on eBay.

    Hmmm … currently, ebay has several sellers of TW Pro v2.0 (new and unwrapped!!). Little does the buyer know, huh? I’ve got THAT cd AND a Y2K problem.

    There is one seller of v3.0 but in the UK. I guess I’ll keep my eyes open.

    Anybody in this forum have one for sale? If so, let me know at [email protected]

    Thanks.

    So, there I was standing in the shower thinking about my stupid TalkWorks problem and it suddenly dawned on me that, at the time of the Y2K update, I was running the program on a different computer… which had long ago been moved down to the basement for my kids to use.

    Even though it was never hooked up to a phone line, I had not uninstalled TW… and, per your advice, FOUND a 6.6MB patch.exe dated 7/99.

    Copied it to my current system, ran it, and VOILA… TW2.03 … and notification WORKS!

    While I might have found the twXXXX file had it been present since it was mentioned on the Symantec page, I wouldn’t have looked for the patch.exe file had you not mentioned it.

    Many thanks to the GetFaxing.com Staff… and YOU, Mr. Moderator, are DA MAN! I love the internet and GREAT forums like this.

    Thanks again for all your help!

    [Going to burn the patch to cd right now!]

    Excellent. Glad we could be of assistance.

    I had also looked on my old systems for patch.exe or the tw*.exe files but could not find anything.

    If possible, could you email me the patch.exe file (please zip it up first as patch.zip or something similar, otherwise email will block it.)

    I’d like to keep a copy in case of any future problems.

    You can email at [email protected]

    Thanks!

    WinFax is a great program with many features, and fairly easy to use (when it works)

    The Fax with XP is pretty limited, but it does the job if your only sending limited faxes.
