Required configuration

Configuration on a Windows computer

To be able to use the telephony features, you must have:
  • a modem.
    • To save and play recordings, this modem must include voice support.
    • To identify the caller, the modem must support Caller ID.
  • the Tapi 2.0 or Tapi 3.1 protocol. These technologies can be used on all systems.

Checking configuration

To check the configuration of your computer, we recommend that you use WDTelDiagno.exe, supplied with WINDEV. This tool is used to list the available TAPI lines and to specify the line that will be used by default by the telephony functions. This allows you to quickly detect the conflicts that may occur between the different TAPI lines.
Remark: The TAPI lines differ from the standard phone lines.
Before using the telephony functions, you can define by programming the TAPI device on which the calls must be detected or dialed. Use the functions:
