FIX: Zetafax client causes stack fault in COMCTL32.DLL



ID: ZTN1073

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax 6


During the Zetafax client initialisation on certain systems, ZETAFAX.EXE causes a stack fault in COMCTL32.DLL. These problems are known to occur when Internet Explorer version 5 or later is installed on Windows 95 and 98 platforms, and where one or more of the Zetafax client's in, out and filed windows are empty, and either turned off or very small.

This does not affect the Zetafax client when installed under Windows NT4.


This problem is caused by an incompatibility between the Zetafax client and Internet Explorer version 5.


This issue is resolved in the current version of Zetafax.


Zetafax version 6 is no longer supported by Equisys. For details on how to obtain an upgrade please contact the Zetafax distributor for your country for more information or refer to the "Where to Buy" section on the Equisys website. Alternatively contact.
