Fax Printing on a Windows Vista Computer

The following is an excerpt from a Microsoft Support Group…

This isn't a fix for the actual problem but a workaround. On a machine with Vista Business and Office 2007 Basic, I installed Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI) and made it the default program for TIF and TIFF files. My Office installation did not have MODI installed by default, so I had to go to the new Vista Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Settings, I believe) and 'change' my Office installation. MODI can be found under Office Tools, but it wouldn't install when I just chose 'Run from my computer' for MODI (got an error). So I select 'Run all from my computer' for Office Tools and that did the trick. When you change the file type associations, the executable can be found in program files\common files\microsoft shared\modi\12.0\mspview.exe or something along those lines. I successfully printed a couple of TIF FAX attachments correctly with this setup this morning. Hope this works for everyone.
