How do you send a pop-up message ?

By gkebuti ·
In win95/98 or 2000, is there a OS utility to send a message to another client or server on the same network? Through command prompt? Result would be a pop-up window on the receiving end with message typed inside.

Thank you in advance for your reply,

How do you send a pop-up message ?

The standard message service of Windows 2000/NT utilizes Net Send <domain account name> <message> from the command prompt. This messaging service is normally installed and functioning as a default.

In Win95/98 there is a messaging utility calledWinPopUp. It is not necessarily installed as a default component or initialized at startup. To install the component go to the Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs > Windows Setup > System Tools - details. check thw Winpopup box and follow the prompts to install with the CD.

If the element is installed then to activate it you would type winpopup from the Start > Run area.

For the winpopup to be effective in a network it needs to be be added to the startup menu so that the service isautostarted at boot. If not started then naturally any message sent on the network will not be received/recognized until the service is started manually.

You might also want to put the word winpopup in the search area up top on the right and seesome of the other responses to other posters on this topic.
