    Net Send replacement needed

    Our company needs to be able to send messages over through the server to computers within the office instantly. We loved NetSend but Microsoft took that off after XP. We have Windows 7 Professional now. Any suggestions? Need help please!

    Try taking a look at the msg command.

    Any reason why you don't trust services not based in the USA? The internet is global and we don't bite you know...well, most of us anyway.

    There was no telephone contact number for the one out of the US and we like to have someone to talk too.

    Jerry, Thank you. I'll take a look at it. From what I have been told, it will not work instantly to other network computers. I'll check it out though!

    It may need a bit of tweaking to get it working. Take a look at the scripting supplied in my link above if necessary.

    Regarding the need to talk to somebody "local" that's a perfectly valid reason to want to stay in country; but it's not the same as not trusting somebody because they are not in the same country as you. I use software and services sourced from around the globe: trust is non-geographic, and implying that it is slightly jarred with me.

    Anyway, I fear a digression into inappropriate territory, so will leave it at that. Do take a look at the msg command and the supporting scripts, they should do what you want.
