I am unable to install the fax component that comes with
Windows. says I need to insert XP service pack 1. I try
to browse to find the file needed since I have serv pack
1 and the file cannot be found. (fxsapi)Can anyone tell
me where to download it or what to do?

Thanks

If your installation of Windows XP was from a CD, you will be prompted to
insert the CD and may need to browse to the i386 Folder so the installation
routine can find the necessary files. If your installation files are on the
hard drive, you may need to direct the 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.

Thank you for the info. I looked in previous replys and
looked for the files you stated. I don't have that file
on my computer nor is "servicepackfiles". I found the
driver on another website, installed it, and now I can't
find it. the search will not find it either...
Is there another free fax program I can download to use
instead?

You can't download these files. How was Windows XP installed on your system?
It is up to your OEM to supply these files.

When the installation routine is unable to find the necessary installation
files (even when directed to the appropriate i386 Folder) it usually means
that the installation files are compressed. 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.

I have the same problem as Jenz. I did search for the
compressed files also and they are not found, so there
are no files to decompress. Please further advise.

You first.
At the very least provide information on the medium from which Windows XP
was installed. I have already posted all relevant information.

If the files are not in c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386 (in my case, only
one of them was(fxsapi.dll) and they are in sp1a, maybe they may be found in
the sp1a download
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/servic.... I
would be amazed if the OEM had them. I have a Dell XP install disk and had
to download sp1a from Microsoft. Note: As I read the posts, the issue is
solely where the sp1a files are, not the original XP install files.

Have you applied SP1 since you installed Windows XP?

Then please refer to the information I already posted in this thread. I will
repost it:

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.
