ID: ZTN1341

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax 9.0.108


This document details issues in previous versions of Zetafax that have been addressed in this release of Zetafax.

Issues fixed in this release

Zetafax Client

With previous versions of the Zetafax client, some users experienced a delay when the using the Zetafax client if they had a large number of faxes within their Inbox or Outbox, with version 9 there have been some performance improvements within the client to handle a larger amount of faxes.

When sending a document in landscape orientation using Embedded addressing, the commands are passed successfully to the Zetafax client but the commands still appear on the sent fax (these would normally be removed). This has been resolved in this release.

When using the Zetafax client fax preview pane, users were unable to utilize the scroll on only the preview pane window. This has been resolved in this release.

When resizing the Zetafax client window, either by changing the size of the window itself or changing the layout of the Zetafax client. Sometimes the application would incorrectly redraw the preview pane and it would be out of alignment by 2 screen pixels. This redraw error has been resolved.

When running the Hebrew Client on a non-Hebrew Windows 2000/XP (systems which have had the language option installed) users may see the '?' character where they have entered Hebrew characters. Also some of the menus were not formatted in the correct manner on Hebrew systems. Both of these issues have been resolved in this release.

Zetafax Server

Previous versions of Zetafax server had issues if the installation path of the server files was too long. The symptom for this issue would be that the device controller would report 'Error opening send file '~send000.001 when trying to send a fax.

Zetafax Configuration

When starting the Zetafax configuration snap in, browsing to the domain user list would take an unnecessary long period of time to list all the users in the selected domain if there were a large number of users. In this version performance has been improved when listing users in the snap in.

Previous versions of Zetafax installed on Windows Server 2003 systems configured with Lotus Notes/Domino would report 'Cannot load this DLL!' when trying import a list of email users from the Domino server. This error no longer occurs and the email users are exported successfully.


The problems mentioned above have been corrected with version 9.0 of Zetafax. This is a purchasable upgrade for users with previous versions of Zetafax.
