Windows 7 fax server manager

I have a client still running Windows Fax on Windows 7. Not sure what happened but I can no longer find the fax service manager where I can route faxes. It is not in Administrative tools. I need it so I can change routing faxes to email and a different folder. I cannot get to it using MMC console.  

i have Windows fax and scan where I can setup the account and monitor incoming faxes. I am just missing the fax service manager and cannot see how to install that?

I copied fxsadmin.msc and fxsadmin.dll from a windows 2008 server which is the only place I have that installed but that did not work. Not sure If I should install it on another Windows 7 computer and try copying those files

It would be great if I could figure this out. The faxing is working but not the way I want it

Unless I'm mistaken, the Fax Service Manager is only available in server O/S' (ie server 2008) and is not available for desktop versions of Windows.
Windows 7 natively will have a very limited subset of the server roles and applications.
