faxing problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

I can not set up faxing because it says that I need
Windows XP Home
Edition Service Pack 1 CD and I don't have them. Our
computer came preloaded so I didn't need to worry about
it at the time.
I tried the information that was given by Russ
Valentine...."If your installation files are on the hard
drive, you may need to direct the installation routine to
the i386 Folder there. If you have applied SP1,these
files may have been moved to a different folder
(ServicePackFiles\i386), and you will need to direct the
routine to that folder."
My i386 folder was empty and i could not complete the
installation Please Help!

    Isn't that where my first post told you the files would be?
    This is often the case when the files are pre-copied by a manufacturer on
    the hard drive. If you do a search for the files that the installation
    routine claims are missing (fxsapi.dll and fxcfgwz.dll) you won't find them,
    but you will find fxsapi.dl_ and fxcfgwz.dl_. These are compressed DLL files
    and will need to be decompressed. Double click on them and you will get a
    prompt for the file to use to open them. Click on BROWSE. and select Win32
    Cabinet Self-Extractor, which is in the system folder. With any luck it will
    uncompress them all and make them visible as DLL files. The install routine
    still may not find these files. If so, then you must manually direct the
    installation routine to the i386 folder that contains these extracted files.
