Hello all,

I have what I hope is a small problem.
I can't view any of my faxes, I can print them OK but can't view them.
I checked to see what is being used to open the .tif and .tiff files, it is
windows picture and fax viewer. I even changed it to paint and still can't
view them.
When I double click them, I get an hourglass for a second then nothing
happens.
I uninstalled the fax program using add/remove programs and then
reinstalled, no help.
Any ideas?

Most often, this problem arises because some other imaging application that
you installed has set itself as the default viewer for TIF files. To view
faxes from the Fax Console, the Windows Imaging and Fax viewer must be your
default viewer for TIF files. You can easily restore that setting in Windows
Explorer > Folder Options. File Types. For most users the command line

"rundll32.exe <drive>:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1"

Thanks Russ,

I was following the earlier post with that but I even went to the archive
folder for the fax and set the .tiff files to use the fax viewer and it
still doesn't work. If I open the files from the fax folder from windows
explorer, they will open but not from the fax program.

If I go to Start\Programs\Accessories\Windows Explorer and select
Tools\Folder Options\File Types and look at the .tif and .tiff, they open
with Windows Imaging and Fax viewer. Is this what you are talking about?

Where is the path statement. Under File Type, I see nothing about path.
There is no place to enter this path.
rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1
Am I missing some option or something?

I am trying not to be dumb but I have looked on 2 different machines and
can't find
any place to add, edit a path.

On the File Types tab,I highlighted the TIF File under File Types (in the
listview). In the "Details for 'TIF' extension frame, I have 2 buttons,
"Change" and "Restore", no "Advance". If I click the "Restore" button the
..tif then has no program associated with it and I get the Advanced button.
If I click it, I get a form named "Edit File Types" but no "Open" button and
the "Edit" button is disabled. I have a button called "New" so I tried to
add a new option but the path listed below will not fit in the "Action" text
field on the New Action form (it won't hold all of the characters).

Bingo.
So you have no file association for TIF files.
How did that happen?
Why can't you just click on the Change button and assign the open verb fir
TIF files to the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer from the GUI?

That's what I originally did when I started dealing with this problem
Posted on down some
(If I go to Start\Programs\Accessories\Windows Explorer and select
Tools\Folder Options\File Types and look at the .tif and .tiff, they
open with Windows Imaging and Fax viewer. Is this what you are talking

At this point there is no advanced button and I can't set any path.
The only way to get an advanced button is for me to click the restore button

(If I click the "Restore" button the .tif then has no program associated
with it
and I get the Advanced button).

I even went to Windows Explorer and clicked a .tif file and it was opened
using
Windows Imaging and Fax viewer but will not open from the fax console.

I thought you said you had a "Change..." button.
You listed it as being present in your post.

If I go to the File Types tab from the Folder Option form, I show a TIF
extension in the listview. Its file type
is TIF File. If I click on the TIF file type, I then have in the lower half
of the form, a frame with
Details for 'TIF' extension as the caption. In that frame I have 2 buttons.
One called Change and one called
Restore. I click change and I then have a new form open with "Open With" as
the caption. I select "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and click OK.
Is this correct so far?

Nope, still won't open. I can go into the Windows Explorer and double click
any .tif file and it will open
fine but not from the Fax Console. I can even go to the actual fax file in
the folder from Windows Explorer and
open it with a double click.
I am really lost here. This makes no sense. Its like the Fax Console is
messed up some where.

Thanks, Hal. I lost track of this thread.
Hal's exactly right. Now that you've associated TIF files, correctly, this
is the next troubleshooting step.

Thanks Guys,

I thought I was a gonner there for a while.
I would have responded sooner but I got someking of a thing that wouldn't
let my computer restart so
I had to do a lowlevel format (not a pretty thing) and just got backup and
this wasn't the computer affected with the fax problem though. Would have
saved some digging. I won't
get back to that computer until Tuesday morning, then I can try the link
that you posted Hal. I will be in
touch.
