I have been trying to add windows fax service, but
somehow, I cannot find the (fxsapi.dll) file. I did a
global search but to no avail. Is this file not supposed
to be included in Windows XP Home Edition?

More about : dll file

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_ (note than an Underscore character replaces the last letter in
the filename). 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've been trying to add fax service to XP as well and had the same problem as
Trish. I tried what you suggested and could not find the two compressed
files. It keeps asking me to insert the "Windows XP Home Edition Service
Pack 1 CD." I've never had one of those. I've searched the KB and nothing
seems to help. What's the deal? :)
