    Hello there

    Im using the “WinFax.SDKSend” object to Fax from my application.
    The setup uses Fax-sharing and it works fine on NT 4.0 and Win2000.
    On Windows XP it also possible to Print to WinFax from Notepad (haven’t tried other apps.)
    When SingleStep thrugh the code things looks normal until I wait for the “IsEntryIDReady” to return. After 20 seconds it’s has not returned, and the fax doesn’t get send. Calling the “Cancel” method chrashes the application.

    Looking at Symnatecs website, I can only find support to Win95/NT SDK, which suggest that it might not work in WinXP?

    Is there anybody out there who knows if there really is af problem with Windows Xp and SDK, and if ver. 10.03 fix this issue.

    Best Regards

    Jens

    PS:
    Part of my code (Borland C++ Builder) is listed below:

    Variant V;

    V = CreateOleObject(“WinFax.SDKSend”);

    int Res;
    long err;

    int Retry = 0;

    Res = V.Exec(Function(“LeaveRunning”));
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“RemoveAllRecipients”));

    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetNumber”) < < edMsgFax->Text);
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetAreaCode”) < < "");
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetCountryCode”) < < "");
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetCompany”) < < DBEdit1->Text);
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetTo”) < < DBEdit1->Text);
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetSubject”) < < "Messages"); Res = V.Exec(Function(“AddRecipient”)); if(Res)
    {
    MessageBox(NULL,”Could’nt add Recipient”,””,MB_OK);
    }

    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetUseCover”) < < 0 );
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetResolution”) < < 0 );
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“ShowSendScreen”) < < 0 );
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetPreviewFax”) < < 0);
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“SetPrintFromApp”) < < 1);
    int FaxFailed = V.Exec(Function(“Send”) < < 1); if(FaxFailed)
    MessageBox(NULL,”Could’nt initiate send fax”,””,MB_OK);

    while(Retry < 20 && (bool)V.Exec(Function("IsReadyToPrint")) == false)
    {
    Sleep(1000);
    Retry++;
    }

    if(Retry == 20)
    {
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“Cancel”));
    MessageBox(NULL,”Winfax not ready to print”,””,MB_OK);
    Screen->Cursor = SC;
    return;
    }

    TPrinter *Prn = Printer();

    for(int p = 0; p < Prn->Printers->Count; p++)
    if( Prn->Printers->Strings[ p ].UpperCase() == AnsiString(“WINFAX”) )
    {
    Prn->PrinterIndex = p;
    break;
    }

    reRTF->Print(DBEdit1->Text);

    Sleep(100); // needed according to samples

    Retry = 0;
    while(Retry < 20 && (int)V.Exec(Function("IsEntryIDReady") << 0) != 1)
    {
    Sleep(1000);
    Retry++;
    }

    if(Retry == 20)
    {
    Res = V.Exec(Function(“Cancel”));
    MessageBox(NULL,”Winfax did’nt retrieve EntryId”,””,MB_OK);
    Screen->Cursor = SC;
    return;
    }

    V = Unassigned;

    Jens, there is a problem with the SDK and Windows 10.02 when using Windows XP. The only solution is to use Windows 10.00 or 10.01 with Windows XP. Version 10.02 and 10.03 do no work properly under Windows XP.
