Error: '1706 - There is no application associated with the extension specified' when sending a fax


PROBLEM

When sending a fax with an attachment through GFI FaxMaker, the sender receives a report with the following error:

1706 -  There is no application associated with the extension specified
 

ENVIRONMENT

  • GFI FaxMaker
  • All supported environments
 

SOLUTION

Check that 'print to' shortcut (Print association) exists on the GFI FaxMaker server machine. This 'print to' shortcut is normally installed for all document and file applications, to check this, right-click the file in Microsoft Windows Explorer. 

If the print association is present, one of the options displayed should be ‘Print’. Try to print the file using this option to ensure that the Print association is working properly.

 

CAUSE

This error means that the 'print to' shortcut is not found for the attached file.
