    You might want to check you services and see if 'messenger' is running? I have a feeling it’s disabled by default, I'm sure you could change that on all your computers with a GPO though.

    I am pretty sure Netsend has been removed from Windows 7

    The messenger service is not included in Windows Vista/7. It's replaced by the command 'msg', but the two are incompatible.

    Net Send is not available on windows 7 so you need to use MSG

    MSG only exists on business and ultimate versions

    but you use a third party LAN messenger such as LanTalk or dMessage
