  • Zetafax web client installation

  1. Insert the Zetafax 8 product CD into the CDRom drive
  2. Open windows explorer and browse to the D:\zetafax\webclient folder (D: is the driver letter of the CDRom drive.)
  3. Double the "Zetafax Web Client.msi" file to run the installation.


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.
