Winfax Pro "COM in use" problem
Posted on 1997-05-26
I have recently installed Winfax Pro 8.0 (Win95):
When I run Winfax it automatically runs its "Winfax Pro controller" minimized,
then when I try to click on "automatic receive" or "send fax" I get this error:
"COM1 is already open, close port and try again?"
Winfax is the ONLY product using the COM port at this time.
Why would it tell me something ELSE is using the port?
*It* has spawned the "controller" itself, then complains because the controller
has access to the port.
Has anyone else come across this? I can run other fax and data programs
with this port/modem successfully, but not Winfax.
