Fax Wizard in Windows XP does not start

I have a clean restored Win XP computer  that I joined to a SBS 2008. I installed the fax from the server and I can see all the sent and recieved faxes but can't send any

The fax wizard in Windows XP does not start. In the Printers and Faxes window I show the fax as ready and the pages in queue that I tried to send

All the other users have no problem faxing (most of the users are on Windows XP)

Any ideas for me?
