Windows 7: Desktop Alert- type software

Desktop Alert- type software

Hi All,

Does anyone know of any free Desktop Alert type of programs.

All i basically want to be able to do is send a popup message to all users/workstations currently logged on.

I realise that it should be possible with NET SEND / MSG commands but they obviously need the service turned on but i dont want to do that, plus i hear doing to all workstations doesnt work so well.

When we use to use the intY Exoserver for a gateway this provided a popup box message broadcast as part of the client software but we do not use this anymore but miss that ability.

I have search the web and sourceforge but not sure im searching for the right terms to find a free one.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Hanna,

I did come across it...on further clicking to download it I found out the company no longer produces it for free, and makes it also for Military Usage so would seem they got a good market and started making it commercial instead of free.

Thank you though for the time looking at it, it is exactly the type of software I'm looking for.

Welcome to Seven Forums Secret2K. Found this:

Fomine Net Send GUI

And look at some options in this thread:

msg.exe / netsend - anything availible on Windows 7? - Microsoft Answers

Googling send domain messages will find you more possibilities. Good luck. A Guy
