Problem:

 
You want to send a fax from another application, but the WinFax printer is missing from the printer drop-down list in the print dialog box. Alternatively, when you try to send a fax, you get the error:
 
WinFax printer not found.
 

Solution:

Set the Win.ini file to allow WinFax printing:
  1. Go to Start > Run.
  2. Type win.ini and press Enter.
  3. In the [Devices] section, insert the following line:

    WinFax=WinFax,FaxModem

  4. In the [PrinterPorts] section, insert the following line:

    WinFax=WinFax,FaxModem,15,45

  5. Click File > Save and then close the win.ini file.
  6. Restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
