Bug? FAX broken in 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • FAX sending appears to be broken in W8.1...

    After 8.1 install, FAX works as it should only once.  Subsequent faxes hang and may report that the line is busy - which it isn't. 
    Thereafter, the FAX attempts to spontaneously redial at boot up, though the program hasn't been opened, and repeatedly redials after a FAX is cancelled.  "In progress" is the message shown - but there is no progress after the handshake.

    PC has been rebooted.  /Scannow has been run.
    FAX service has been uninstalled and reinstalled via Programs and Features/turn Windows features on and off.

    Went so far as to remove FAX from "add/remove" features, again install W8.1 over W8. and then add the FAX service.

    Works fine in Windows 7 - same machine/same hardware/same settings. Also functions normally in Windows 8.

  • Thanks Dave.   No, this is the standard 8.1 ISO Pro Preview incarnation.
