I would like to use my Windows 7 PC as a telephone. I know of an undocumented feature called Phone Dialer (
C:\Windows\System32\dialer.exe), but the interface of it is quite minimalistic and does not contain as many features as the same utility in Windows XP (including the ability to receive calls). Since my computer is running Windows 7 Professional and therefore contains Windows XP Mode, is it possible that it can access my computer's telephone port so that I can use the Phone Dialer in Windows XP to place and receive telephone calls?
When I go into Device Manager on Windows XP Mode, it does not recognize any modem connected to the computer. However, Windows 7 does and I can place phone calls properly on Windows 7, but it doesn't work in Windows XP Mode. My laptop is a Sony VGN-Z56TG with a custom install of Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.
