The problem is that the *exe does not contain the module but expects it to be somewhere in the system  >:(

I just started my older PMFax to review logs and it start without the need of the dll !

I suppose imgfx6mn is from ImageMAKER provided by your fax device drivers.
Check if you have your fax card drivers.

Hi.

I'm sorry I don't know about PMFax, I tried to find the imgfx6mn.dll file on my collection but I was not able to find it.

Searching on the Internet I found this information "imgfx6mn.dll is a module belonging to ImageMAKER Development Fax Printer Driver from ImageMAKER Development Inc.". But that site reference it as a Windows DLL.

Derrick, which version of PMFax are you using? version? Lite, Pro?. Which OS/2, ArcaOS version are you running?
Do you have some special hardware, or it is just a modem to get fax?

I'm curious about PMFax. First connection functionality I've been able to run at first OS2 usage in 1995 was a fax client in WINOS2 even before I could connect to Internet. Unfortunately cannot remember the software name.
Was by a 14.4 kbps modem through the serial port.
I'd like to try again, what I have is a Webrunner Atlantis Land 56.6 kbps USB faxmodem working in Windows 10, Conexant chipset, and OS2 Warp 4.52 on a Virtualbox guest machine.
Do you think I can afford the challenge?
Of course assuming that PMFax accepts USB connection or an alternative configuration setup for connection, and also can be used with the so said "winmodem" as that model should be.
Thank you

Looks like a winmodem, so no, it won't work under OS/2. Something like a USB USR robotics modem will work as the USB interface is presented as a com port.

I just found the waybackmachine archived site with some dead liks:

But no hints of the Windows version nor "imgfx6mn.dll ".

I can confirm that the US Robotics USB modem works great with ArcaOS. I'm using the latest Arca Noae USB drivers.

I will also note that land lines, FAX and dial-up are now much less commonly available. I found challenges using a modem that were just me trying to remember how we used to do communications.
