Windows 7: Send Message from 1 Pc to another

10 Jul 2011   #1

Send Message from 1 Pc to another

I have 2 PCs on my home network and on occasions would like to send messages between them. One is running 7 and the other XP.

It seems like a simple task, can anyone suggest a method?

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

It would appear Windows 7 Home Premium doesn't support Msg.exe or Net Send, but other versions such as Ultimate may do.

You might want to try this third-party utility: Net send in Windows 7/Vista with Sent utility. Sent - an utility for sending net send messages from command line

Have to say that I've always avoided MSN, I might explore that.

'Sent' also looks possible but I still feel it should be much simpler than that. After all I can transfer data between PCs as it is, how hard can it be for the receiving PC to flag that there is incoming with a desktop message? Well for me it would be impossible but someone out there..........
