This is getting to be an annoying habit, and I hope I’m not taxing the Internets’ patience. That said …
For the first time since I bought this computer several years ago, I find myself needing to fax something. When I attempted to do so, I could not. Rummaging around in the Help files revealed that for the fax to work, the “Fax Services” component of Windows must be activated. However, when I try to do that, I’m told I must insert a Windows XP disc for this to happen.
I don’t have a Windows XP disc, per se. Never did. XP (Media Center Edition) came factory-installed, w/o discs.
Leaving aside the question of why in the pluperfect hell XP wouldn’t ship with fax services installed, what can I do here?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
