Fax & Scan Availability

Posted: 10-21-2008, 01:22 PM
Hi...
I was "given" a new Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows VISTA in exchange
for a defective Dell Inspiron with XP as its operating system. This was due
to 3 YEARS of hassling with Dell over their defective/crappy product. My
original Dell was a Small Business Computer which required Windows Fax &
Scan, and it operated smoothly/reliably. Now, this new VISTA Home Basic that
I have been "Upgraded" to, cannot support my operations.

How can I get Windows Fax & Scan software for my new system ? I'd rather
keep everything Dell/Microsoft/Windows based versus going to a 3rd party,
even with all the shortcomings regarding Quality, Support, and Reliability.

Please supply me with pricing and availability for this software; or is
this also something else that will not be supported.

Thank You !

You cannot get Windows Fax & Scan for your Vista Home Premium system.
Windows Fax & Scan is only available on Vista Business/Ultimate. Either go
to a third-party solution (some folks have liked Snappy Scan), get a
standalone fax machine, or contact Dell for an upgrade to Vista Business.
