    Has anyone found a way to install WinFax Pro version 7 under Windows 2000 and/or Windows XP?

    With thanks,

    I don’t believe WinFax PRO 7.x will install under Windows NT/2000/XP because it was specifically designed for Windows 95. Delrina/Symantec did not release a compatible 32 bit Windows product (for Windows NT 4.0) until the release of WinFax PRO 8.0.

    One of the problems would be the printer driver, since Windows NT/2000/XP use a different printer install method, it would make the WinFax PRO 7.0 printer driver incompatible with Windows 2000/XP

    In addition, any version of WinFax prior to 9.02 is not Year 2000 compatible. You will encounter problems with dates in logs, and problems resubmitting faxes that have either failed or encountered a busy signal. You can still use the software for the occasional fax sending and receiving, but it is not recommended for anything beyond that.

    Unless you need WinFax PRO 7.0 for a specific reason, I would recommend upgrading to Version 10.0. It supports Windows 2000
