Multiple user profiles & winfax pro v7
Posted on 1997-04-13
I have installed winfax pro version 7 for windows 95. In my user
profile all is well. I send and recieve faxes ok.
However when I put a shortcut to it on my wifes desktop (same machine)
the program fires up ok but faxes cannot be sent or recieved, manually
or automatically. Investigation showed that the modem didnt appear to
be configured within winfax pro for my wifes profile. Even though I
use the program ok when logged in with my profile.
Attempts to configure the modem in my wifes profile using the setup
wizard were not successful. I get as far as the bit where a list
modems SHOULD be displayed but there is nothing there. The wizards
'next' button is greyed out and so I cannot configure the modem.
To remove the possibility that the modem may have already been set or
in use, I have restarted the PC and tried my wifes version straight
I have setup individual profiles for the users of my machine. That is each person, normally only my wife and myself, logs in using unique user names and passwords. This preserves our own preferences, desktop layouts etc.
Hope this answers your question.
