As Symantec doesn't list anything about Win Fax

And Vista I would hazard a guess that it will not work with Vista. Many of their other available suites don't currently work with Vista so I can not see why this one would be any different.

Works but with constant error notices

by jps In reply to As Symantec doesn't list ...

10.03 installed on Vista Home Prem.

Program functions normally but the os says there are "known compatibility issues" when you try to start the app - just click "Run program" and it starts.

Also there are constant messages saying that the app is trying to communicate but it is not compliant with Vista's message display. This is described as an "Interactive services dialog detection." X out of the box and it just comes back later. If you try to display the message it modifies your desktop & eventually tells you that WinFax cannot communicate the message - THANKS! Then you close the empty dialog & return to normal.

Vista has its own fax program

by groucho3 In reply to Do you get the winfax pri ...

Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor says that Symantec WinFax PRO "might have minor compatibility issues" with Vista. Actually, they are incompatible. Vista has its own Fax and Scan program, but it is far less good than WinFax. You don't get to preview your faxes before sending them. WinFax, however, has been discontinued by Symantec.
