    netsend under windows7

    hello,

    i'm looking for a software which can send messages on other stations. I used netsend but it doesn't work anymore. So i wonder if this software still exists or what can i use instead?

    thanks

    msg.exe from a CMD prompt

    MSG {username | sessionname | sessionid | @filename | *}
    [/SERVER:servername] [/TIME:seconds] [/V] [/W] [message]

    username Identifies the specified username.
    sessionname The name of the session.
    sessionid The ID of the session.
    @filename Identifies a file containing a list of usernames,
    sessionnames, and sessionids to send the message to.
    * Send message to all sessions on specified server.
    /SERVER:servername server to contact (default is current).
    /TIME:seconds Time delay to wait for receiver to acknowledge msg.
    /V Display information about actions being performed.
    /W Wait for response from user, useful with /V.
    message Message to send. If none specified, prompts for it
    or reads from stdin.

    Syntax: sending to a computer called "Computer1" with a message of "This is a test message"

    msg /server:Computer1 * This is a test message

    You can also add the switches of /v /w between * and the message to give you a read out of when it was sent and when the user presses "OK".

    Just a heads up guys. The two 1st time posters here are using the same IP address and the one who claims to be in Barcelona is in France (well, as it's the same person I guess they both are).

    You could try a program called Screen Popup 3.00. We use it on our Windows 7 PCs, and it also works on Windows XP.

    It looks nicer than net send - can be a little fiddly to setup, but once it's working it's a dream.

    Screen Popup Free Download


    It's freeware so no cost.
