We have been using Async Professional Fax Printer (APRO) for XP and at this time need to migrate to Vista/Win7. APRO has been discontinued and has no Win7 equivalent. What can we use for its replacement.

In one of the earlier blogs in here, someone suggested Snappy fax and that answer was accepted.  How do I install and use the Snappy Fax Printer drivers?

 I have requested help from Snappy fax support too, but no response from them. Here is the link to the existing accepted answer.

My sincere thanks for responding and helping.

This link looks great and seems like it is the solution for my problem. The only issue is that there is no download for Snappy Fax Printer Driver.  Snappy website has version 5 which is not supporting Snappy Fax Printer Driver. The above link refers to version 3. Where can i find version 3 of Snappy Fax Printer Driver?

Found Version3 of Snappy, but it installs "APF Fax printer drivers", which are not win7 compatible... so back to square zero.

Accepting hdhondt's answer cause i asked for how to install documentation and he did provide that information.

My main question regarding APF Fax Printer replacement, never did get answered. Snappy is not the a replacement of APF Printer since they are not creating APF files rather TIF files in the latest version 5. Snappy version 3 is still using the old APF Fax rpinter which is not Win7 compatible.

Personally, moving away from APF format completely to TIF.
