  1. sapi.cpl does work, it just has no icon in Control Panel.
  2. It wasn't in there. Andy
  3. I am running XP Home. I have sapi.cpl but don't have a Speech icon in Control Panel. Is it supposed to be there? If so, how can I fix it. Thanks.
  4. I want to change the default speech from M.S. Sam to Mary. I downloaded the Speech SDK 5.1, but it didn't help. Does anyone know how I can change the voice to Microsoft Mary ? Thanks, Andy
  5. Dear Microsoft and Bill Gates, Why did your company break my fax modems with Service Pack 3 ? Have I gone onto your property and broken some of your "stuff" ? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Since the post, I went back and did a System Restore to before SP3 was applied and my fax service works again. So apparently there is a problem with SP3 and a working SP2 Windows Fax Service IMHO. Another issue that occured during my troubles was; after opening the Fax Console (and not getting any services, not being able to see any previously sent faxes, etc., the system kept telling me that a Windows Shared Fax Printer Driver needed to be installed - of course there isn't a driver to install because it is already installed... nor do I have a disk to install the "driver" from, there is no "Microsoft" subheading to select a set of drivers from here nor can I find one on the MS Windows Update or Technet site. When I was finally able to get the Fax driver Properties window open, it said I was running the SP3 version. If I have more time to waste (sarcasm), I will reinstall SP3 to get more detail than provided here, but for now, I can say that on my system SP3 broke my Fax Service.
  6. This error starting showing up after install SP3 for my XP Home Edition. Can someone help me get my fax going again ? Reinstall Fax service using Repair mode. Win32 error code: 13. This error code indicates the cause of the error.
  7. I would like to use heaplock and heapunlock. Does anyone have an example of their use? Thanks.
  8. There is some incorrect information that says it is in XP. I don't recall the site. I could not receive a fax. My modem was trying to connect, but timed out. The Event Viewer had a generic error code. Maybe the phone lines weren't good on that particular day. I have sucessfully received faxes before. Andy

  10. Yes I did. Andy
  11. I use XP Home Edition. I am having problems receiving faxxes. Is the Sp3 version supposed to have Fax Service Manager? I don't have it. Thanks.
  12. I found this, and I un-installed FaJo XP File Security Extension. I have not had any error messages since. Andy <Typical this problem is caused by non Microsoft Explorer Shell Extensions and you can troubleshoot you can use AutoRuns <for Windows to troubleshoot. You can disable all of the Non-Microsoft shell extensions and test to see if the problem <occurs and then re-enable them 1 by 1 to see which one causes the problem.
  13. I found this error in the Application section of the Event Viewer. I would like help in finding out what is causing it. Thanks Application Failure explorer2.exe 6.0.2 900.2180 in shell32.dll 6.0.2900.2180 at offset 00023c3e 0d 0a
  14. On a system with XP Home Edition I have a customized program, explorer2.exe that shows Go instead of start. (It gives me room for one more window.) It worked fine on XP Pro. I did the register change that was required and renamed all old instances of explorer.exe to exp.exe. It works fine as an admin and "F8" mode. It won't work as a limited user. Thanks, Andy
  15. I appreciate the link. Andy
