Fix broken Fax in Windows 8.1

Since Windows 7, Windows has had fairly comprehensive abilities to send and receive faxes using compatible modem hardware either internally via PCI, or via USB.

Unfortunately, due to a bug in Windows 8.1, you may get the feture setup but unable to complete receiving an incoming fax or not able to complete sending without problems.

In addition, received documents contained in the faulty profile may temprarily disappear when the modem "falls off".

Through the Microsoft TechNet, a solution has been found here.

Simply download the FXST30.dll file from that thread, and replace the "broken" verison in C:\Windows\System32\
