I am trying to set up faxing in Windows XP Professional. I do not have the XP Professional cd-rom, as it was already installed on my computer. I can locate the file (fxsapi.dll) through my computer windows and so so on but when I select browse through the fax wizard it doesn't appear because I cannot change the file type. Can anyone help me?

I don't understand your question. There is no need to change a file type
just to browse to a location. You've left out important details, I suspect.

Sorry Rus let me start again. When I browse through the fax wizard, I can only see folders not the files inside the folders.
The "files of type" is greyed out and defaults to fxscfgwz.ddd;fxscfgwz.dl_. It is only browsing for those file types.

Right. That's what it should do. It knows what file it needs and you can't
change that.

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.
