PRB: Zetafax Outlook forms do not display the fax image correctly



ID: ZTN1075

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax


When a received fax is opened the area where the fax image would normally be displayed is all grey. If the attachment is saved and viewed with the Zetafax viewer, or Windows Imaging, the fax is viewed correctly.


The Zetafax Outlook forms are dependent upon Windows script version 5.5 being installed. During the Zetafax Outlook extensions install, the Windows script engine is updated. If the update failed it would produce the above symptom. The failure to update is usually linked to user rights restrictions when run on Windows 2000 or NT 4.


Log on the workstation as a user with local administrator rights and run the Windows script engine update this will usually be found in "C:\Program Files\Zetafax Outlook Extensions\SCR55EN.EXE". Confirm the update completes without errors.


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