The issue ‘you cannot print fax by using a fax modem in Windows’ has been recently address by Microsoft and fixed with a hotfix that is available for download. Here’s how the error has been described:

When you send a fax job by using a fax modem that is installed in or connected to a computer that is running Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, or Windows Server 2012, the fax is not in the Windows Fax and Scan outbox. Therefore, the fax is not printed.
