How to install TM5 on Win7 64-bit

Recently installed TM v 5.0 on three new Windows 7 64-bit Dell workstations (hooked into a small domain run by a Dell box running Server 2008). Through an amalgamation of things I’ve read about on this site, referred sites and experimentation, I used the two approaches and put together this procedural doc for the firm I work for.

1.) On new workstation install VFP (visual fox pro). Used VFP6 first. Obtained files from here: http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/FoxPro/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=125

2.) Create a printer called TeleMagic Fax 35:

  • Open the Control Panel & select Devices and Printers
  • Add a new LOCAL printer for this PC
  • Assign it to LPT3
  • Select GENERIC and “Generic/Text” printer driver
  • Name it exactly TeleMagic Fax 35 (including spaces & capitalization)
  • Select to Not Share this printer
  • Select option to not have it the default printer
  • Grant all users full rights to this printer (via printer properties once created)

3.) Browse to location of tm.exe on server and run file.

4.) Select No Database if prompted or just don’t login.

5.) In TM go to File – Workstation Setup and run through process.

6.) Log out.

7.) Copy the spoolss.dll file from the c:\windows\System32 folder to the c:\tm5node folder.

8.) Browse to location of and run “Dbutil.exe” – Copy and Register System Files

9.) Log in to TM.

10.) Confirm Directory is set properly: a. In TM go to: Options – Preferences – Directory: b. Make sure all options for Function Keys, List Boxes and Toolbar Configuration are listed as Global Directory.

11.) On program shortcut created in Step 5, right click and add user initials to end of target line.

 Alternative Method:

1.) Add Administrator account to new computer, and set up on domain using the domain administrator login credentials. Reboot will be necessary.

2.) Log back in as Administrator.

3.) Turn off UAC.

4.) Install VFP (visual fox pro).

5.) Copy the c:\tm5node and C:\Program Files\telemagic (OR c:\Program Files (x86)\telemagic if from an x64 machine) (tm5node contains a bunch of files, telemagic folder contains a fax folder and one other file) from a working computer to the same locations on the new computer.

6.) Copy the spoolss.dll file from the c:\windows\System32 folder to the c:\tm5node folder

7.) Create a printer called TeleMagic Fax 35:

  • Open the Control Panel & select Devices and Printers
  • Add a new LOCAL printer for this PC
  • Assign it to LPT3
  • Select GENERIC and “Generic/Text” printer driver
  • Name it exactly “TeleMagic Fax 35? including spaces & capitalization!!!!
  • Select to Not Share this printer
  • Select option to not have it the default printer
  • Grant all users full rights to this printer

8.) Change all .exe files in c:\tmwin folder to have compatibility mode with Win XP SP3. May need to set as run as administrator as well.

9.) Set permissions on tm5node folder so that all users have read and write access.

10.) Map network drive that contains database files using administrator credentials.

11.) Run tm.exe to see if program loads. If not see below links. If it does, proceed to Step 12.

12.) Create new user account for domain and then log out of Administrator account and back in as standard user account.

13.) Browse to c:\tmwin and create shortcut of tm.exe in the desired location.

14.) Right click on the shortcut and select Properties. In the “Target:” line at the end, after tm.exe put a space and then the users login initials. i.e. c:\tm5node\tm.exe ABC

15.) Map network drive of folder containing database files using standard users’ credentials.

16.) Run shortcut and confirm that program boots properly.

17.) If program does not run properly, see below links. http://telemagic.zoft80.se/install/windows-8/telemagic-on-windows-8.html

FaxMan Error: If user is getting a “Failed to open or initialize the FaxMan Database” error then: Set the permissions on c:\program files\telemagic to permit full access by all Telemagic users (or Everyone, if that is easier). To do so, right-click on Start, choose Explore or Windows Explorer. Navigate to c:\program Files. Right-click on Telemagic, and choose Properties. Choose Security, and grant Everyone (or the Telemagic users) full access.
