FXSAPI.DLL, Supporting Windows XP API File
Fxsapi.dll is the Microsoft Fax API Support dll available in Windows XP operating systems. It is used by the computer’s modem driver and is only needed for setting up data fax support. It was developed by Microsoft to be utilized in Windows XP systems only. The dll is not an essential system component and if deleted, will only cause easily rectifiable errors.
The fxsapi.dll file is usually included in modem drivers and the system will prompt for fxsapi.dll if you are installing a fax/printer/scanner on your system and do not have the required components in system32.
Errors associated with the fxsapi.dll include a missing or damaged file.
Fixing this error is very easy. Just visit http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?fxsapi and download the file; then, install it in your system32 folder.
“need file fxsapi.dll from Windows XP CD-ROM”
An error occurring because the installation driver of a new fax/printer/scanner cannot locate the fxsapi.dll file in system32, this can be sorted by two methods. First, simply try inserting the Windows XP CD-ROM and letting the system automatically rectify the issue. If that cannot be done because you do not have the XP CD, manually locate the file available in C:\I386\FXSAPI.DL_ (note that the last L is an underscore). Try installing the driver again and when prompted for the CD, browse to the file location instead.
“cannot find fxsapi.dll”
Various versions of this error include
“file not found – fxsapi.dll” and “fxaspi.dll – required file cannot be found” etc.
This usually happens when you are trying to install a new driver for data fax support. When the installation process cannot find a file that is essentially available as part of the operating system, it means that the file is most likely available in your system in compressed format. Manually locate fxsapi.dl_ (again, notice the underscore) and double click on the file. You will get the “Open With” prompter. Choose Win32 Cabinet Self-Extractor and extract the file within the i386 folder.
