    I bought a Toshiba laptop recently with Vista Home Premium on it.

    All my previous OS experience was with W2K or older.

    I need to have fax capability, and Vista Home doesn't.
    I installed several fax clients to try, but continue to have a
    problem.

    One says it can't create the TIFF file that will become the fax.
    The other says it doesn't have permission to use the file.

    I figure there are 3 potential solutions,
    and I wonder which youse guys would choose.

    A) Figure out how to set Vista to NOT F^&K with the permissions.

    B) Switch to XP, where programs just work better?

    C) Switch to Vista Ultimate with it's built-in fax capability?
    IF C, could I just install over Home Premium?

    Will try that, but not holding my breath.
    Tried that, no luck, AND no reply from support after 4 days.

    Other was RKS (formerly MightyFax).
    Have exchanged several emails with them, and may be onto something.

    Just not familiar with the permissions thing, an MS is no help at all.
