I wanted to install the fax service (window component). As advised by add and remove programme, I inserted the XP SAP2 CAD rom. But the service could not be installed because the error say "can not find file something .dll" in the XP CD

My modem was not connected to Telephone line and I use DSL broadband. To use fax I planned to use the modem and disconnect the broadband.

Is is a requirement that before installing Fax component of Windows XP the modem has to be connected to telephone line? Otherwise the service will not install.

My system:-
Core 2 Duo 6300
2 GB RAM 533 MHz
GS 7900 Nvidia Card
Intel DG965 RY Mother Board
Win XP home with SP 2
No malware or spyware (check regularly with Spybot and Adware)
No virus
Registry errors - Nil (check regularly with windows live care)

Please let me know the solution.

Yes, your computer has to be connected to a telephone line in order for the virtual fax machine to function.
