send pop-up messages without Netsend Command line?!

Recommended Posts

The msg command replaces netsend in Vista and above, usage can be found in the link below or by running msg /? from the command line.

If you are nostalgic as all hell then you can use third party apps to utilise net send, however this normally requires a scripted delivery of a client to each workstation.

 

Thanks

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.

It's freeware so no cost.
