to the windows experts out there:
I have a client who updated to WinXP from Win2k. Now Symantec Winfax
pro will not work. So, uninstall and reinstall right? not so fast...
when you try to uninstall via windows control panel, it does not
recognize that the program is there. If you browse to the programs
install directory, there is a command uninshel.exe which is the winfax
uninstaller. when I try to run it, it claims that it cannot find a .dll
file. Anyone know of a program under winblows that I can use to see
what dll this program is trying to get to? If I just try to run the
install from the CD, it says I must uninstall winfax. If I move the
directory or delete it, it still detects that winfax is installed.
