  • Shutdown the Zetafax Server.
  • Download the patch from the following location (ftp://ftp.equisys.com/pub/Zetafax2007SP2/Patches/ZTN1610_and_ZTN1673-11.2.658.zip)
  • Extract the contents of the files into a temporary folder.
  • Copy the contents of the temporary folder into your < program files> \Zetafax Server\System\ folder
  • Restart the Zetafax Server.
  • From each Zetafax Client machine, select �Check for Updates...� from the Help menu. 
  • You will be informed that a new version of the Zetafax Client Applications software is available.

This behaviour was corrected in a critical patch.
