Default fxs files missing - suggested download to not install is an exe

The only downloadable file on that page is an exe file. An unzip utility is useless. The only thing you can do with it is run it and install the 2003 server you specifically say to not install (which reinstalls part of the operating system or something.)

I found and manually extracted some of the files but cannot find the cov files you mention, and if what I'm specifically trying to do is install MS Fax, how can I manually install it?

fxs files

Many people have a hard time installing MS Fax for XP. Here's the fastest way to get all the missing fxs files:
Go to
Download the file, but don't run it (it's intended only for Server2003 installations).
Open it with Winzip or other Zip reader.
Save / extract the files to a convenient permanent folder, and point the FAX installation there to access them.
