    Because I upgraded to Windows XP Home, I upgraded my WinFax Pro 10 to WinFax Pro 10.03.

    All works fine, but there is one annoyance: When I click "print" in my word processor and specify WinFax, I get this message:

    "WinFax is not active for this User Account. Please start the controller and try again."

    Then I manually start the controller, and all proceeds normally.

    I've tried WinFaxing from other programs, and the same thing happens.

    As in my old WinFax setup, I don't start the WinFax controller at boot-up. In the old setup, the controller came up automatically whenever I started to send a fax. How do I make it do that in my new set-up?
