SBS 2011 does contain 32 bit Fax drivers that will work with Windows Vista and Windows 7 clients. You could upgrade the client operating system to Windows Vista or Windows 7 and the Shared Fax will work correctly. If upgrading the client operating system is not possible, you can manually replace the 32 Fax drivers with drivers that will work with Windows XP. You can find appropriate drivers on an SBS 2003 SP2 Server. If an SBS 2003 SP2 server is not available, you can obtain the drivers from Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2.


Step 1: Obtain the Appropriate Driver Files

The appropriate driver files are located on the SBS 2003 SP2 server in the following directory: c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3
You need to copy the following 6 files to a temporary location:
FXSAPI.DLL
FXSDRV.DLL
FXSRES.DLL
FXSTIFF.DLL
FXSUI.DLL
FXSWZRD.DLL
I think that is written a bit strangely… SBS 2011 does contain 32 bit Fax drivers that will work with Windows Vista and Windows 7 clients. … it should go on an explicity state that it does not include them for XP 32bit workstations.
And I stuck the files up here http://cid-c756c44362cd94ad.office.live.com/browse.aspx/SBS2011XPFaxing in case you don’t have access to a SBS 2003 box.


a. SBS 2003 SP2 Server is accessible
