I am trying to install the Dell Fax Utility/driver on our MS 2008 x64 server to allow our XP users access. The latest drives I've downloaded from Dell don't seem to have a Fax driver. The setup CD that came with the printer will run on my XP box and give me the option of installing a Fax driver, but running it on the 2008 server fails and tells me to try again after the restart. I searched the original install CD but can't find anything but the standard PS and PCL drivers, so I can't add it manually.

Are you running the CD as administrator?  Even though you may be a domain admin or local admin, if you do not right click and select run as administrator, the installation of programs will fail.  There is a way to set your User name to run everything as admin, but I cannot remember how to do it off the top of my head.

I completely forgot about that. Sadly, it got the same error.

I was never able to work this out on the 2008 server, had to implement  a separate print server on a 2003 server. Works but sloppy.
